Archive for the ‘Face Off’ Category

Since it’s the beginning of the new month and as every month, it’s time for the fifth round of the Metalectro “Face Off”! A few good remix contests took place last month and i picked my favorite one for this month’s Face Off. My favorite not only because of the quality of the remixes but also because i think “Deadhouse” was one of the most difficult tracks to remix and come up with something good. It has a very specific feel and character and the atmospheric parts make it a special track. On one hand as a remixer i guess you want to keep those special parts that make a track unique but then again if everyone keeps those same parts you’ll end up with a bunch of remixes that sound very similar. So, it was very interesting to see what people would come up with and as expected, extra effort and creativity would be what would make the difference in this remix contest. So, here come my favorite 5 remixes of “Deadhouse”

It’s time for the 4th Metalectro “Face Off”! This time it will be a monstrous one as well, as i have picked “Monster” by Noize Generation as the track of this round. A recent release and a great original that got remixed by quite a few names. Only 3 of the many great remixes made it to the end and got released though and only one of those 3 has made it into my top 5. Actually, i have been listening to “Monster” remixes all morning trying to narrow the selection down to 5 and finally i am ready to go. Maybe some of you will be surprised by leaving out some more famous ones for some smaller names but hey, i simply liked these 5 the most: Blood Tinted, Owl Vision, Monophonique, 1ino1eum and Vakkuum.

Not that’s it’s been so long since the previous one but i was just listening to some of the remixes of DJ Antention’s “Rapid Fire” and thought i’d post my top 5.

Posted: December 29, 2010 in Face Off

As promised last week, here comes the 2nd round of the Metalectro “Face Off”. This time is on the remix competition for “Blast” by Neus. It took me a while to pick my 5 favorite remixes but after all i have managed to reduce the list from 9 to 5 tracks. All 9 tracks i mentioned last week are great and are certainly worth checking out so congratulations to all these guys. I had to cut the list from 9 remixes to 5 though based on my taste and ears. So, sorry to Alienhearts, Monophonique, TrashingTeenagers?! and L & M Bros for not making it to my top 5. Good stuff guys! Now, let’s move to those who did make it:

The Noisy Freaks (again congratulations for being one of the 3 winners!)
