Wow, it has been an amazing experience listening to all the remixes. We had over 900 people join the event and 120+ submissions. The music ranged from every genre imaginable and all over the world. Heather Christie and I listened to every track for originality, emotional expression, production skills, and mixing. It was a hard choice, but we have chosen the winners of the first ever Silk Drop remix contest.
First of all, I would like to thank everyone that participated. It’s always an amazing experience to see how our music has inspired other music producers. I also want to thank Loopmasters, PluginBoutique,LANDR, Melodics, AfroDjMac, and Novation for being a part of the contest by offering prizes. I really appreciate how much these companies support the music community. Make sure you send that love back and check out their site.
Ok, so the grand prize winner of the contest is Kelsey Robinson. Kelsey’s remix had a unique flavor and emotional build to it. It took the more indie pop / electronic track and put it into a much more EDM context. Great remix and we are stoked. Thank you Kelsey.
The Runner-up is Fatal Kut. This Paris music producer added even more silk to the track with some old school keys and harmonic vocal layers. Check out both of these tracks below.
There were also so many amazing tracks worth mentioning. We had to narrow it down as much as we could and were left with these five honorable mentions. Each one of these tracks has aspects of it that makes it worth checking out. From the more psychedelic remix by Seeded Vision, to the trip hop / edm styles of Fractal Force. Listen to the tracks below and follow the musicians on Soundcloud. I have a feeling all these producers are worth watching and going somewhere soon.
On top of that, I want to do an extra shout out to TAETRO for his video of a live performance of his remix. It’s the first time I have seen that. Absolutely amazing.
Again, thanks to everyone that joined the Remix Contest. Lots of amazing music and inspiration has come out of this. One last shout out to Loopmasters, PluginBoutique,LANDR, Melodics, AfroDjMac, and Novation.
