A brand new remix competition has begun which could see lucky remixers net €1,000 and a range of other prizes. Read on for full info…
To celebrate the release of the Mooji’s ‘Double Agent’ EP this summer, a remix competition has been launched with incredible prizes including a fee of €1,000 per remix, 50% royalty shares, and the unique chance to be included on Mooji’s special remix album – also titled Double Agent – due for release later this year. This is a great opportunity for electronic music producers worldwide to gain industry experience in the remix arena, and to work with versatile Mooji tracks that explore elements of acid-jazz, dub, funk, downtempo and blues. Three tracks up for remix are: ‘So Good’ featuring sexy slide-guitar effects and vocals by blues legend John Lee Hooker, dubby track ‘Medley’ featuring Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, and dark electro number, ‘Don’t’.
Entrants should head to www.moojimusic.com/remix-comp to listen to the EP and sign up for the stems. Reworks must be uploaded to a Mooji Soundcloud profile by 13 July. Further submission details and competition rules can also be found at this link.
This remix competition will also give budding producers the chance to join the list of superstar producers that have already remixed Mooji’s debut ‘Dark Matters’ LIVE Album Mix (which he released under his techno alias Kramnik), such as Ben Simms, Timo Mass, Monika Kruse, Gabriel Ananda, Nick Warren, Hans Bouffmyhre, Herman Cattaneo, Cari Lekebusch and Alexi Delano amongst others.
A further five tracks from Mooji’s Double Agent album and stems will be released and announced throughout 2015, and each will come with a €1,000 prize fee. As each single is launched online, a remix competition will be announced. Stems will be provided for all those who register and producers have a tight deadline of four weeks from the remix announcement to complete their work in their own unique style.
