Zion I to Host Remix Contest
- Words: Jennifer Marston
No one appreciates the art of the remix like Zion I, and in preparation for their upcoming album, The TakeOver, MC Zumbi and Amplive are sharing their enthusiasm for the practice by holding a remix contest.
The track in question is "DJ DJ," which was leaked last month on the web and finds the hip-hop duo exploring some electro territory.
Fans are urged to visit an "innovative new widget," where individual track parts are currently living. Remixers are to create a new version of the song and upload it to the widget. Not a professional remixer? Not a problem. Amp and Zumbi have provided a basic production interface for users who don't own remixing software. They've even provided this to aid in the process.
Prizes thus far include autographed discography, track placement on the Zion I website, and Zion I merchandise. Check the Zion I site for more details.
The TakeOver is out February 17 on Gold Dust Media.
