Zed Bias/Sick Trumpet remix competition


Any producers out there? You need to check out this remix competition, which could see your work released on Liverpool-based label Sick Trumpet, joining artists such as Osunlade, Crazy P, Phil Asher and Atjazz. The latest addition to the roster is Zed Bias, and his new ‘Experiments in Biasonics’ LP is ready to drop.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to remix ‘Boomerang’, which has already been receiving radio play from Gilles Peterson, The Unabombers and Kev Beadle. It is a bouncy house jam, the Basement Jaxx style rhythms and chattin’ being pushed along by the jumpin’ bassline – visit www.myspace.com/sicktrumpet to check it out.
True to Sick Trumpet’s music policy, anything goes for this remix. Whether you are a jazz demon, a house head, a dubstep don or a junglist, this competition is for you. Your remix will be judged by a panel including Domu, Phil Asher, Jenna G and Marcus Intalex, and the winning entry will be released on Sick Trumpet, so this is a real chance for you to shine.
Click the link at the bottom to download the parts, and when your remix is complete, send your interpretation via a file sharing site such as www.yousendit.com to info@sick-trumpet.co.uk in mp3 format (320kbps) by September 28th. The winner will then be expected to provide individual parts of the track to be mastered by Dave Jones himself at his studio.
Get entering and good luck!
