Artists such as Schmoyoho, and Day by Dave have taken their love of JackSepticeye, and music combining them into remixes. Below is a compiled list of these fantastic remixes for your listening pleasure.
To start off, let’s look at “All the Way” which is a highly energetic and uplifting remix. Speaking to a PMA, or Positvie Mental Attitude, This is a fantastily positive and optimistic song even. Created by Schmoyoho, this remix takes sound bytes from Jacksepticeye’s channel and melds it into a remix perfect for both casual listening and on repeat for 10 hours.
This one is rather sweet and uplifting although a wee bit out there. Continuing along the thoughts of PMA, this remix looks at positivity from another side. The lyrics suggest working through an existencial crisis or at least estiential questioning, which i ssomething eveyone has to go through at least once in thier life. This remic by Schmoyoho looks at the sadder side of a PMA.
This remix “Come Closer”, is created by Day by Dave and showcases a differenct character besides Jacksepticeye.
Antiseptic eye is a character created by Jacksepticeye to add to the overarching narrative. This is an evil alternate version of Jacksepticky. The general idea of the character is the opposite of JAcksepticeye created and maintained by the internet. This dark version fights for power and control over jack himself much like in ‘The Excorsit” or [demon possesion films]

Another remix by Day by Dave showcases the impressive remixing skill he has and the amazing set of lungs Jacksepticeye has.
Although there isn’t a lot of video to the remix,there wasn’t a lot of video to start with. Unlike his other remix videos and the other remix video’s we’ve looked at, this one is taken from one main audio byte along a beat. Regardless of the simplicity of the audio used, this is a fantastic remix.
