Ableton is once again collaborating with Dancetracks Digital to sponsor a remix competition in which participants will vie to compose the best remix of the Martin Brothers track ‘Dum’ from Dirtybird’s latest release, ‘Rocket Surgery EP’. Through September fifteenth, contestants will upload their remixes to the competition website (http://www.dirtybirdremix.com), where the tracks will be showcased and voted on by listeners.
The winner, determined by online voters and Dirtybird, will receive a grand prize digital record-release with Dirtybird. Other prizes include a pair of M-Audio BX8a Deluxe studio monitors, a Glyph Technologies professional-grade hard drive, Dancetracks Digital free download credits, and Ableton software and merchandise. The contest aims to provide undiscovered artists with the opportunity to exhibit their talent and gain entry to the competitive music industry.
“At Dirtybird, we are always on the hunt for new musical talent,” said Martin Brothers’ Christian Martin, “this contest is the perfect platform for hungry bedroom producers to break through to the next level.”
“We are excited about this concert and we are looking for some people who ‘get it,’” confirmed Dirtybird founder Claude VonStroke, “so please don’t bother turning in your big room electro house remix. I want to hear some sweaty ass-jiggling tracks.”
Ableton manager Graham Ball stated that he thinks the contest will be not only a promotional opportunity for entrants but also an enjoyable leisure activity for its musically gifted participants: “People are going to have a lot of fun with this. It's a great track with lots of clever details and variation.”
The contest, which begins July 15th, is free to enter and Ableton Live software will provide competitors with a complementary Live audio file-set, warped and arranged for easy mixing.
