Congratulations to both of our winners! Here are the winning remixes.

The winning remix by UTUTUT from Lanus, Argentina has a hip hop/funk with smooth bass lines and punchy kicks that really move the air through the subs. The flashy synth samples and well-placed tom fills round out the track and provide additional texture. This remix is reminiscent of a beach disco in France in the middle of summer. Félicitationes UTUTUT for producing a great remix!

The 2nd place remix by Zelski from Daventry, UK is a chilled house number served ‘on the rocks’. With colourful tropical elements, ethereal guitar licks and deep, powerful kicks this mix really caught the judges attention. This is a remix you would want to hear on the beach in France on a summer’s night with a bottle of wine in one hand and a baguette in the other (or fish and chips and a pint for our UK friends). Great job Zelski on creating a dope remix!

SKIO would like to thank to Bordo and 96 Musique for being a part of this contest. And big ups to all of you for producing some dope remixes!

This contest is now closed.

The following is the initial contest announcement.

We’re stoked to announce our next remix contest – this time for a smooth house track called “Sunset On My Mind” by the up-and-coming french duo called Bordo on the French record label 96 Musique!

Both the artist and their label have been killing it lately, and if their tracks and mix tapes are any indication, they are well on their way to achieving even more success in the industry in Europe and beyond!

The name of this duo, “Bordo”, refers to both the word for red wine in French and a city in France ( “Bordeaux”). The idea for their music was born after a night in the studio when they produced their first Deep House infused track “How It Feels” in December 2014. They are passionate about creating chill sounds and house music inspired by the sun, sand and sea. Their unique mix of smooth beats and catchy keyboard lines, guitar licks and vocal hooks echoes the source and inspiration for their music.

The track for this remix contest “Sunset On My Mind” features disco-infused deep-house beats, smooth keyboard lines and catchy guitar riffs reminiscent of an endless summer on the beach.

There are some sweet prizes in store for you in this contest. The grand prize winner will score an official release on 96 Musique – this type of recognition is a crucial piece of developing a successful career as an artist! The winner will also get a Skype meet & greet with Bordo (a prime opportunity to get feedback and mentorship from an industry pro), a call with SKIO A&R’s, featured artist for a week on SKIO Music, and an exclusive premiere on the SKIO Music blog!
