SKIO Music has teamed up with Gang Signs, File Under: Music and Hoax Artist Management to put on a remix contest for ‘Mate’, one of the freshest tracks off Gang Signs’ new LP. Frontman Peter Ricq, who is also a member of our favourite Indie-Electro group - Humans, hooked up with Adam Fink (drummer) and Matea Sarenac (keyboard/vocalist) to create Gang Signs, a hauntingly beautiful dream pop project with surprising dancefloor appeal.

Now on a North American tour, the band and label are looking for a creative remix of Mate, a minimalist track with rich textures and high remix potential. The sampled hand claps drive the track forward as layers of vocals ebb and flow around them. The juxtaposition between the male and female vocals enhance one another as Ricq’s deep, sombre voice provides a foundation for Matea’s ethereal melodies. This kind of minimalist dream pop track lends itself well to extensive reinterpretation when being remixed into various genres. We’ll leave it up to you as to whether you mould it into something deeper and darker, lift it up into a dancefloor hit or surprise us with something completely different! We’re looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
