mi7 hosts remix contest featuring DJ Rkod

mi7.com, which earlier this summer hosted the “Dream in Blue” remix contest, has announced another remix contest – this time featuring original materials from DJ Rkod, a long time friend of this site and “a minor theory”. Submissions are accepted until October 05, 2007. The prizes are vouchers for samples from mi7.com’s library.

I find this remix contest especially interesting, since the original material consists of instrumental songs, rather than songs with vocal melodies or rapping, which are more typically featured in the remixing scene. Will we hear any attempts at melodies or rapping? Or will the remixes all be instrumentals? We’ll stay tuned to this fascinating experiment.

MI7.com is holding a remix contest featuring the song “Dream In Blue” by “a minor theory: “We know there is a wealth of talent here at mi7.com, so we thought it was time to bring some of it together. So today we proudly announce what we hope will become a regular feature: our first User Remix contest! MI7 members A Minor Theory have be kind enough to allow the use of the original files from their song Dream of Blue.”

Disclosure: spinmeister is half of “a minor theory”. 🙂
