Diego Miranda Remix Contest Winners

Our favourite time around the SKIO HQ is when we get to announce the winners to our latest remix contest! Receiving a list from artists like Diego Miranda and Mikkel Solnado with the names of some producers in our SKIO community makes us proud every time. But this time… you nearly brought tears to our eyes.

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!

Gang Signs Remix Contest Winner Announcement

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!

Gang Signs Remix Contest

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.

Stylust Beats Remix Contest – ‘Heavy Metal Shit’

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…

Pemberton Festival 2015: From Icons to Ingenues

This year Pemberton Music Festival impressed us with an eclectic lineup of rising stars, music legends and everything in-between. For some it was a shot at a second chance. Kendrick Lamar, who had a disappointing show last year, redeemed himself with a powerful performance, igniting the crowd with both his classic tracks as well as his most recent album. For others it was a reminder that their iconic status is well deserved. Missy Elliott sarcastically reminded some of the younger generation that she’s been killing it for a couple decades before diving into a surprisingly deep set of hits that every age cohort seemed to know well. Speaking of a good sing-along, Weezer didn’t disappoint with their nostalgic throwbacks that are easy to get into even if you’re not a diehard fan. And Kid Cudi drew a surprisingly large crowd as even the younger attendees made a rare pilgrimage from the Base Camp tent to the Mount Currie stage to enjoy Cudi’s energetic performance.
