IHEARTCOMIX Presents Remix Contests
- Words: Fred Miketa
Franki Chan’s IHEARTCOMIX label goes above and beyond its release expectations by announcing two new remix contests for Texas and New York’s respective electro-champions, Ocelot and HEARTSREVOLUTION. Both acts have already caused a stir in the music world, with Ocelot performing alongside the likes of DJ Mehdi and Boys Noize, and HEARTSREVOLUTION finding its tracks featured on a number of blogs worldwide.
For Ocelot’s remix contest, the duo is offering its heavily distorted “Lo Sforzo,” from the forthcoming 12” of the same name. The lucky winner will be featured on the gatefold vinyl release alongside LA Riots, Toxic Avenger, and more. The deadline is December 3, so get cracking.
For the HEARTSREVOLUTION contest, the track “C.Y.O.A” will be available for those bedroom producers hungry to have work released. The winner will be showcased on the band’s forthcoming single, which will also feature remixes by Brodinski, Lazaro Casanova, and more to be announced. The deadline is December 10.
For both contests, no outside artist samples may be used and there’s no corny label swag being served to the winner.
