When speaking about
music that has been remixed
from one genre to another, it refers to the amount of potential the new remix has in pulling fans
from the original genre base.
A Britney Spears track (primarily pop) is remixed from
it's original genre to dubstep
. The crossover value
of the remix relates
to how many people would like or be interested in the dubstep version
know the original track.
DJs can sometimes get people interested in new genres by playing remixes
of popular tracks they
know, allowing them to relate to the music and the lyrics since they
are familiar to the listener. The ability a remix has to pull in listeners from
its original genre can be referred to as the 'crossover value
' of the track
