In his Versions video series, Austrian video artist Oliver Laric seeks the origins of the remix.

I've been digging a lot of local dance music in recent weeks: Earlier this month, Will Eastman released this awesome remix of the Caribbean, and his buddy, Outputmessage, put out The Infinite Void, an infectious set of deep dance tunes that reach for outer space.
