Olie Bassweight‘s debut The Ghost In The Machine LP came out around the time we first started working with him back in 2012. The album featured solo productions, remixes and collaborations with the producer’s (and our) favourite musicians. Truth, TZR, Perverse and many more all featured in one form or another; making the album one of my standout releases of the year.
Towards the end of last year, we teamed up with Olie and his Bassweight Recordings imprint to give a few lucky producers the chance to appear on a remix release (digital and CD) and promotional campaign. Olie chose Why Are You Here? – one of the biggest tunes on the album – and we put up the stems and spread the word. Oh, and because he’s awesome like that, Olie’s also decided that you guys can grab the original mix as a FKOF free download…
To reiterate what happens now, our four chosen winners will be/ have been contacted with next steps – which include a place on the final remix digital/ CD album release (and the PR campaign to promote it). Their remixes will also be professionally mastered by the experts at Binary Feedback!
It was a tough time judging all the entries, but we felt the four remixes from these producers stood slightly higher than the others – but the others were all pretty amazing too. It was tough! Thank you to everyone who entered – you can check all the remixes out in the SoundCloud group here.
Peace, love and respect.
