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.
In his typical fashion, deadmau5 “launched” the competition on his official Facebook page — “they told me i have to promote this”.
Whether this remix competition is yet another commercial popularity contest remains to be seen.
There are prizes for the winner, like a release on a mau5strap compilation and some other stuff — but if you’re like me then maybe you just enjoy remixing deadmau5 because it’s fun.
A couple of my older deadmau5 remixes below, not including the Brazil 2nd edit remix, which is on YouTube.
Maybe you are a nerd and have already sliced up the stems provided by Splice for this competition.
But, if you didn’t – I did it for you.
Why did I cut up the track-long stems? I always find shorter cuts much easier to manage in my production process, so I almost always cut up stems when I work on remixes.
So, if you plan on entering the competition, for which you need to get a Splice account, you can take advantage of my cut samples and save yourself an extra 10 minutes.
The samples are all in wav format, ready to use. Enjoy.
