A few weeks back, we partnered with multi-talented UK artist Ghostpoet for a remix competition in which XLR8R readers would rework one (or more) of three singles from his recently released Some Say I So I Say Light LP for [PIAS] Recordings, with the winning reimagined versions of each song getting cut to a dubplate by London's longstanding vinyl mastering and pressing plant The Carvery. We received a ton of solid contenders for each of the tracks ("Meltdown"'s remixes are here, the remixes for "Dial Tones" are here, and all of the "Cold Win" entries are here), but could only pick three winners.
After scouring through the hundreds of entries, our team of judges landed on Dutch producer Bastard Sugar's surreal version of "Dial Tones," UK artist Thinnen's dark and bass-loaded take on "Cold Win," and the heavily percussive house remix of "Meltdown" by Londoner Joe Ashworth. All three of the tracks will be cut to their own dubplates by The Carvery, and can be streamed in full below.
