Crookers Host Remix Contest
- Words: Jennifer Marston
DJ/production team Bot and Phra (a.k.a. Crookers) are well known remixers, having taken on the likes of Kid Cudi, Bonde Do Role, The Secret Handshake, and Adam Sky over the last couple years. April, however, finds the Milan, Italy-based duo stepping away from the mixing board and giving fans a chance to work their own magic on the pair's electro-drenched club music, with the Funk Mundial Remix Contest.
Hosted by Man Recordings, the competition is in support of the label's upcoming Funk Mundial compilation, a sampling of the vinyl series' best tracks, of which Crookers’ "Soca Ali Baba" is a part. Bot and Phra worked a hefty amount of baile funk into the original, as the series calls for, but participants in the remix contest are under no constraints. Simply head to the Man Recordings site to download the original acappella, bassline, and drum fills from the track. Submit all entries to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 20.
Three remixes will be chosen from the pack, with the winners receiving "Man Recordings goodies and a share in sales."
