Here is your chance to have your remix released on Tronic thanks to this remix contest. Drunken Kong is one of Japan’s biggest techno acts and the label is looking for a remix to accompany their original ‘Peace’ track.
Please try to use the main hooks, while reworking them and making a proper remix. Also please try to keep it anywhere between house and techno. It needs to fit musically to Tronic. Drunken Kong and Christian Smith will carefully go through all submissions and select a winner.
At his timing of great difficulty and uncertainty, we decided to create a track that sends out a bright and positive vibe. We took vocal parts from a track we did for our debut EP on Tronic a few years back and we recreated this with a completely different feel and groove. We are very happy with how it came out and we are very pleased with this turning out to be a remix contest. You can do a lot with the original parts so we hope you enjoy working on it. We look forward to hearing the remix! – DRUNKEN KONG
The winner will get their remix released commercially on Tronic, and will also get a slot on Tronic Radio, and a possibility for a single release in the future.
You must submit your remix by May 10th, 9PM CET. Submit this form to receive the parts bit.ly/DKREMIXCONTEST and send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
