NINRemixes.com was first developed in 2005 by The BS of D shortly after Trent Reznor released the source material for his hit single The Hand That Feeds. Originally taking the form of an unofficial remix contest started by The NIN Hotline, and a organised by a large group of dedicated fans on ETS, the contest spawned the submission of over 500 remixes of The Hand That Feeds. After a huge repsonse, and multiple server crashes due to bandwidth issues, ninremixes.com was donated to the staff of volunteers by a fellow fan, and has continued to thrive with over 5,000 Remixes/Covers/and Fan Inspired Songs today. After a few shaky versions of the site, Ninremixes.com then teamed up with Eric Newport to create the first historical version of NINRemixes.com that served as a general purpose remix database, accommodating submissions of remixes of another of Trent's hit singles Only. Now in it's 7th year of operation, NINremixes.com continues to evolve thanks to the volunteers and donators that have helped keep it free from advertising, and spam free for all these years.
The site has been actively developed by Chris and Eric ever since and has grown into not only the largest collection of remixes of Nine Inch Nails music on the internet, but also one of the largest collections of free mp3 downloads on the internet. The success of open sourcing The Hand That Feeds and Only to the people has led NIN to open source a great deal more music since then and now NINRemixes.com has blossomed into a community of thousands of individual remixers.
To give you an idea on the scope of our site, just take a look at some recent statistics:
Total mp3s on site: 5,119
Total mp3 downloads: 1,723,592
Total ratings: 72,101
Total reviews: 151,576

Jonathon N. (AKA Star)
Jonathon has been a NINRemixes.com moderator for the past couple years. Mainly working in the shadows, he originally earned the name "shadow operative" when he first began working on the site because of it never being known when he was working, but stuff would always get done.
