01 Mar Remix Contest: “Courage” – DJBolivia With Urban Francis
Remix Contest: “Courage”
I recently finished producing a track with Urban Francis called “Courage.” The track was a progressive house track with a bit of an electro feel in some ways. We filmed a series of tutorial videos about the track.
In addition, we posted the entire Ableton 9.5 project files online in my public dropbox account, and also posted a full set of stems there in a separate file. Those are available as free downloads to anyone who wants to grab them to experiment with.
We are currently hosting a remix contest for this track. I’m personally sponsoring the contest with a prize of $300 (in Canadian dollars) for the winning track. That amount can be paid to the winner (in Canadian funds) as long as you have paypal. If the winner is a Canadian resident, I’m also willing to mail a cheque if you don’t use paypal.
In addition, five other randomly selected entries will be showcased on my website, in this blog post, on our SoundCloud accounts, and through other internet media, along with the contact info and/or a promo website for the producers of those remixes (if you want to share such info).
Before we get into the rules and info on how to enter, here’s a link to our Instrumental and “Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer” versions of this track.
1. Send a link to your track via email to Urban Francis in an uncompressed audio format, ie. WAV or AIFF format. The best way to do this is probably to put it into a Dropbox account (you can get one for free if you don’t already have one) and share the link to the file with Urban Francis. If this isn’t possible, you can find other services that would allow you to host and share your file. But to be honest, Dropbox is probably the best and easiest by far. An alternative would be to get a free Soundcloud account (if you don’t already have one) and upload the file there, and enable downloads, then send that link to Urban Francis
