Topic: Dead Famous Remix Contest - DHD "Scene"

http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y236/brokenbeatnik/deadfamouslogosmaller.jpg

We at Dead Famous have a wonderful opportunity for everyone.  In the coming months, we will be releasing a Remix EP, where some of our favorite artists around have picked their favorite Dead Famous release, and are turning out killer 2009 remixes of them. To coincide with that release, we will be hosting a remix contest for DHD's seminal slab of techfunkery, "Scene".  I am sure most people remember this tune for it's sampling of a well known guitar riff, coupled with vocals about reading on online forums that the scene is dead.  We think that new remixes of Scene from today's artists has the potential to blow the roof off, so we decided to put it to a contest.  Entries are not limited to breaks, in fact we encourage remixers from all musical styles to enter. Everyone is eligible unless you already work for Dead Famous (not in a release/remix aspect), at which point you already know that you can't enter.  We fully expect to hear some awesome interperetations of this already great tune from of everyone who enters.

To enter, all you have to do is download the parts from this message. Send all completed entries in either 320 kbps mp3 or Wav format to brokenbeatnik@yahoo.com.  The deadline for entries is May 1st, 2009.
