Empire State Remix Competition Winners

Empire State Remix Competition Winners

Empire State Remix Competition Winners

Big thanks to everyone who entered our DJ Mag Remix Competition, we hope you enjoyed working on your remixes. We had over 300 entries and there were many moments of genius among them. We ended up with a shortlist of around 16 we really liked and it was extremely hard picking out a single favourite.

We’ve left comments open at the bottom of this page so you can tell us why we made the wrong decision and that your mate should have won etc… Feel free to speak your brains down there.


WINNER

In the end Tominaga’s remix won us over for it’s sheer uniqueness. It’s impossible to present a clip here that gives you a full idea of the reworking she’s done on our original track as it changes radically every few moments from beginning to end. Tominaga’s turned the original track inside-out and totally made it her own. She’s sung vocals and played classical piano adaptations of Titan’s melodies and bassline, turning the whole remix into a mindwarping journey that leaves us a bit overwhelmed every time we listen through it. If you follow our label, Blu Mar Ten Music, you’ll know we’re mainly interested in artists who try to find a unique voice in Drum & Bass, who try to stick out rather than fit in, and Tominaga’s achieved this in spades. Her rework will be released as part of the Empire State Remix Project later this year alongside remixes of other Empire State tracks from some of D&B’s best producers.

RUNNER-UP

There were many contenders for the runner-up slot but we finally settled on Law & Wheeler’s remix. A lovely re-imagining of the classic Boymerang / Doc Scott Blue Note sound with a great, up-to-date level of production that triggered all our favourite memories. This was a very, very close contender for overall winner, in fact we debated back and forth about it for almost a week. Of all the remixes, this one will stay in our bag for gigs the longest.

  1. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

  2. […] とにかくそこからは記憶が定かではありません。Chrisさんに言われるがままに私はWAVデータを迅速に渡さなくてはならなかったし、簡単なプロフィールとか、アホみたいな自分の写真とかも用意しなければなりませんでした。私は完全に趣味で音楽をやっている人間なので、いわゆる「アー写」なんて持っていないから、自分的によく撮れたなあと思っている自撮りを渡すしかありませんでした。Chrisさんの方で私のFacebookかなんかで見つけたのか、おかっぱに赤い口紅をしてキリッ! と謎のキメ顔をしているやつを「これがいい」と言ってきたのでそれの元データを送りました。それが後日でかでかとBMTのウェブサイトに掲載されてしまうわけですが……。 […]

  3. To be honest, the winner is class that’s for sure, and i respect your decision! 🙂
    But i’m just a little bit disappointed i’ve put so much effort in the remix, and i didn’t even get into the best 16, despite of getting large amount of excellent feedback.

    1. Anyways, thanks for this opportunity for Blu Mar Ten, big up for the winner and the runner-up! And i’m looking forward to the next competition as i love to remix Blu Mar Ten tunes! 🙂

      Best wishes,

  4. Remixing this was a joy. Thank you, Blu Mar Ten, for the amazing opportunity! Congratulations to the winners and to all who got it done and in! Keep going everyone!

    1. Not gonna fight! The winners sound very good indeed. I’m happy to have made the top 16. Thanks for the opportunity BMT!

    2. Both winner and runner-up sound great, two different takes but both awesome. Are there any issues with uploading our own to Soundcloud, now the comp is over?
