The Fruits of a Remix Comp

I've been entering remix competitions for years. Big ones, small ones, local ones and international ones. I've never won a comp but I've had a hell of a lot of fun entering.

Remix competitions are great. They allow you to dig into a track and really discover how it was created. They help you hone your skills and sometimes even pull you out of your production comfort zone but most importantly they help you develop a healthy habit of actually finishing songs.

I've thrown up a couple of remixes that I've completed in the last couple of months. Some of you may have known about the comps and some of you may even have entered.

Steve Angello - Tivoli (Pretension Remix)

Riva Starr - I Was Drunk (Pretension's Baltic Bash)

So have a go at the next remix comp you see. It's great practice and there are always plenty of prizes on offer.
