We’ve teamed up with Vintage Currency Music and their talented young singer/songwriter from Victoria, BC, Johnny Gr4ves for our next remix contest. This time we’re offering up an EDM-infused R&B hit “Say Yes“ off his debut EP that is slated for release later this year.
Talented bass producer and long-time friend of SKIO, I.Y.F.F.E, partnered with us to host a #SKIOremix contest with his record label Uprise Music and offered their bass-heavy medley “Beats On Fire” featuring the talented vocalist Krime Fyter for the competition.
After Mr. Black and WAO connected on SKIO to collaborate, we were thrilled when they wanted to kick things up a notch and give the track back to our community for a remix contest of their own with “Funk Yourself” in partnership with Israeli record label Push The Volume Records.
Attention dj’s and producers, we’ve got a treat for you all so pay attention! We partnered up with a long-time friend of SKIO and super talented Bass music artist from Brazil, I.Y.F.F.E and his record label Uprise Music to host a remix contest for the monster track “Beats On Fire ft. Krime Fyter”. We’ve also teamed up with the mad music scientists at PK Sound to support our contestants with fresh swag and more.
SKIO Music has done it again, presenting another massive remix contest, this time we are super excited to have partnered with one of Portugal’s top DJ’s, currently ranked at #58 in the DJ Mag Top 100, Diego Miranda!
After listening to ‘At All ft. Veronika Redd’ for the first time, we couldn’t wait to kick off this remix contest with Ark Patrol and Heroic Recordings to see what kind of remixes you guys would make. Well, once again you guys killed it! With over 70 remixes submitted from producers in 47 different countries, there was no shortage of creativity and diversity in this bunch. It’s clear there are some seriously talented young producers joining our SKIO family and making our community one of the most promising talent pools out there! So thanks to everyone who participated and submitted remixes to the contest!
With so many quality producers participating, this contest has been by far the toughest yet! In the 5 week period, over 150 remixes of Gang Signs – ‘Mate’ were submitted and once again, you guys did not disappoint!
We’re stoked to wrap up another successful remix contest, this time with Stylust Beats for his latest collab with Neon Steve and Lafa Taylor, “Heavy Metal Shit”. A huge shout-out also goes to our partners SubPac, Sleeveless Records and ProducerDJ for supporting the contest and providing our wicked prize pack. The dope track and awesome prizes allowed us to attract over 300 contest entrants across 33 countries!
SKIO is stoked to announce that our latest remix contest is in partnership with Gang Signs, File Under: Music and Hoax Artist Management. Gang Signs has just released their new LP, Geist, and we’re excited to host a contest for ‘Mate’, our favourite track off the new album. Geist is the result of a collaboration between three diverse and talented musicians: Peter Ricq (frontman/vocals), Adam Fink (drummer) and Matea Sarenac (keyboard/vocalist). Some of you may know Ricq as one half of the Vancouver based Indie-Electro duo Humans, with Robbie Slade. Ricq has taken the fusion of experimental-electro and indie-pop that Humans were known for and readapted it into a more dream-pop focused sound with Gang Signs. I would describe the tracks off their new Geist LP as hauntingly beautiful with surprising dancefloor appeal.
When we teamed up with hard house prodigy, Juyen Sebulba and his label family FRNT Music / Mixmash Records and Rival Music Group to host a remix contest, we were super excited for what was to come. The SKIO team is already fans of this talented young Texan producer, and we just knew you guys would dig the fresh and unique hardstyle-electro sound of “Majin Buffalo Scout – ft. Kovalenco Gennadi”. Now that the dust has settled and all the submissions have been heard, we were truly blown away by quality and level of international participation in this contest! Over 300 remixers from 50 different countries entered the contest and demonstrated – yet again – how we are all connected through music.
Local bass music legend and friend of SKIO, Stylust Beats, has just released his new full length album ‘HEATROCKS’ and it is awesome! With a new track premiering on a different music blog everyday during the ‘12 Days of HEATROCKS’, we’ve partnered with SubPac, Stylust Beats and Sleeveless Records to make this Day 3 release of “Heavy Metal Shit” extra special by hosting a remix contest for you guys! But more on that below…
Earlier this month we hosted a remix contest in partnership with the legendary reggae group Inner Circle and their record label Warner Music, for the track ‘Tenement Yard’ ft. Chronixx & Jacob Miller. This track is particularly special to the group since they recorded the original with the late reggae pioneer Jacob Miller in 1976, before a tragic car accident took his life a few years later. For Inner Circle, the contest represented an opportunity to let young producers breathe new life into their classic hit, and to give a whole new generation the chance to work with a piece of reggae music history.
