Default Remix advice?

There are a few remix competitions out there and at least two have been mentioned here on the forums - Johnny Cash and Public Enemy spring to mind.

I was wondering if anyone would like to enlighten us on how they approach a remix. I have only ever done one - for the FM Ian Carey competition and it didn't win so I presume it was crap in the eyes of the adjudicators - it wasn't dance music at all!! But I liked it! That's what's important, isn't it?

So what's the best way to approach a remix starting from an acappella audio file?
I know it is all probably very related to the material and the style you are going to remix it in, but are there any techniques that should be included (e.g. sidechaining, etc)?
