Over the last couple of days, my inbox was filling with emails about Lazor Sword. With their album released only a couple of days ago, this shouldn’t be a suprise, but it turned out these emails all regarded a remix session hosted by 08BAR during the Amsterdam Dance Event.
Among the remixers are Tom Trago, SirOJ, Steven de Peven (Rednose Distrikt), Sotu the Traveller and many names I haven’t heard before. They all put their fingers on Lazer Sword’s Web Swag and you can listen to some of the remixes in the player above. And I’m sure more will be added, so check again soon!
As you know by now, Gonjasufi’s remix album A Caliph’s Tea Party will be in stores next week and you probably heard some of its tracks yet.
Apart from that album, there is also a contest going on, you can listen to some first results below.
If you’re more interested in remixing yourself, head over to Gonja’s site and download the accapellas for “Love of Reign” or “Candylane”, both taken from A Sufi And A Killer. Results must be in by November 1st, the winner will receive a one-of-a-kind art print signed by Gonjasufi.
Everybody else support your favourite remix and vote for it!
It remains somewhat of a mystery what happened to the Zed Bias remix competition. Sick Trumpet, the label that released the album Experiments With Biasonics Vol. 1, held the contest back in 2007. The winners were picked by Domu, Jenna G, Phil Asher and Marcus Intalex some months later.
Austrian producer Philta was among the lucky ones – or that’s what he thought. To this day, his broken beat rework never made it on a release, be it a 12-inch or digital.
It was only in May when Martin Iveson announced the winners of the Atjazz Remix Contest. In his latest Keeping It Deep podcast you can now listen to the whole top-20 remixes. I must say it feels a bit awkward to listen to the same track in the mix for nearly an hour, but there are some marvelous remixes included.
