Calling all re-imaginaries, beat-bakers and musical surgeons!
We LOVE collaborating with people, especially other talented musicians, and we wanted to get a remix of some of our songs going but we didn’t want to limit it to just one remix. So we thought it’d be a great idea to throw a REMIX CONTEST! We’d love to hear what you guys can come up with as a remix for our tune “Bendito” The sky is the limit and there are no rules. Cut it up, change the beat, run it through your lawn mower… do whatever you want, but the deadline to be done is AUGUST 1ST 2012!
We’ve provided all the stems below. Download them and get to work. We are accepting submissions exclusively through Soundcloud so do the following:
1. Upload your submission to Soundcloud.
2. Post the Soundcloud link to the Y La Bamba Facebook page – facebook.com/ylabamba
3. Share your remix with your friends – though we will ultimately choose our favorite remix, comments and favorites on Soundcloud and Facebook will be taken into account.
Here are the prizes!
3rd Prize: 2 tickets to any non-festival date on our upcoming US tour (8/15 -9/5)
2nd Prize: A signed copy of our new album Court The Storm on stunning 180 gram gold vinyl + 2 tickets to any non-festival date on our upcoming US tour (8/15 -9/5)
