Unless you’ve been under a “rock” these last few weeks, you already know about the Splice remix competition for deadmau5′ and Grabbitz’ Let Go. Splice began accepting submissions on February 1st, 2017, with a deadline of March 1, 2017. Continue reading “deadmau5 and Grabbitz “Let Go” Remix Competition – Chopped Stems”
It’s InternetDJ.com‘s 10th annual remix competition, and – for the first time ever, the tables have turned. I have participated in most of the remix competitions over the years, but this time around, I get to be the remixee!
There is a $150 cash (paypal) prize for the winner of the competition, plus the possibility of a release on Amazon, iTunes, Beatport, Google Music, etc… If the remixes are particularly good, I may consider releasing several of the remixes as part of an EP, via Addictive Vibe Records.
The rules: InternetDJ members have until Midnight Saturday October 4th 2014(ET) to download the sound pack, remix into a new song and upload it on this page to InternetDJ. After this day, the upload function will be closed and shortly thereafter the remixes will be filtered for nonsense and presented within the InternetDJ Voting Booth. Any electronic music style will be considered, including-but-not-limited-to: drum & bass, progressive house, filter house, breaks, chillout, ambient, jackin house, dubstep, trap, french house, etc… your mind is your limit.
The Voting Process and Prizes: InternetDJ members and visitors are welcome to vote on all the uploaded tracks. The top three highest rated remixes will then be delivered to Sonaris, who will select the #1 remix. This winner will receive the $150 paypal prize from InternetDJ. The winner may also have a chance to be released on Beatport/Amazon/iTunes. It will be up to Addictive Vibe Records to decide if the winning remix will be released. Addictive Vibe Records may approach two or three remixers to release an EP with the original + remixes. Any agreements between the remixes and Addictive Vibe Records are in no way connected to InternetDJ. If the remixes are good, you might get a release out of it!
I’ve got a new original EP out on Beatport, called Sabotage You (with h. perkins) – an eclectic mix of breaks, progressive house and electro house. Check it out and pick up a copy, if it’s your “cup of tea”.
Last but certainly not least, my new original EP — Pepel — is coming out on Beatport, iTunes and Amazon on Wednesday, August 1st! You can preview three of the four tracks on the EP, on my Sonaris Soundcloud page. It’s a combination of two brand new original progressive house tunes, one deep chillout track and a great electro remix of Pepel by Gerald The Genius. Bittersweet is a Royksopp-like jump into deep, emotional chillout. Pepel is a Eric Prydz or Pryda-like adventure into melodic club progressive house. Finally, Pathfinder is a bouncy progressive house tune with it’s stand-alone unique vibe.
Not enough? I’m also finishing up a 2012 re-edit of axisONE’s track Sincerely (with vocals by dJessa). Basically I’ve mixed the track down again, from scratch, swapped out the bassline, replaced a few instruments and made the vocals shine like they had never before. No firm word yet on when or how this will be released, but I am excited for you to hear it, that’s for sure!
I am also working on a remix of Onisu’s track Glowing at the moment, which will be another awesome progressive house release.
Stay tuned for more, and as always, thank you for the support! My dreams wouldn’t be achievable without it.
Released a new remix (YouTube video here), for Alex Biagi and vocalist Eric Lupher, called Chill The F___ Out (Sonaris Remix). It’s a vocal dubstep/chillout track.
Check it out on the Sonaris Beatport page.
Just for fun, I also released a drum and bass remix of the same track, which you can grab for free on the Sonaris Soundcloud page.
It’s been a productive weekend for me, musically. Uploaded a new progressive house track which I did with Alex Biagi. Finished a new remix for Alex Biagi’s upcoming EP, “Mammoth” – which I think turned out well – more on this later. And, I’ve been slowly putting in some work on my next album (not sure yet if it will be an EP or LP). I also finished a new remix for Hot Sh1t!’s “Music Master” remix competition.
This remix is a hard hitting electro house style, club-ready track at 128 bpm. I haven’t done a track like this in a while, and this was really the perfect opportunity to let it rip. So, turn up the volume (I mean, really turn it way up) and enjoy! No download on this one, for now, since it’s a competition entry.
The InternetDJ.com Winter 2010 remix competition has completed. Even though I didn’t place in the top three, I’d still like to share my entry from the competition, with you. It’s my third drum & bass production, and I am rather proud of it. The version I’m posting for you is slightly edited from the version I submitted to the competition. Namely, I’ve updated the mix to make it even more crisp, I’ve increased the tempo by 5 bpm to 165 and I’ve added more percussion.
Check it out and enjoy!
