"At first I was scared by the amount of remixes that came in, we were amazed there were over 1000! But after listening to them all I'm amazed at the quality level of many of the entries. I'm excited to finally announce the winners, but even more excited to play them out at my next gig!" - Richie Hawtin
After months of listening to every single last one of the Plastikman 'Ask Yourself' Remix Competition entries, Richie Hawtin has picked his best - which includes ONE winner, FIVE runners-up and 20 special mentions who stood out from the crowd and produced something innovative and creative.
Well done people, you managed to scare Plastikman! Anyway, onto the business end of stuff- the winners and runners-up.
IN FIRST PLACE! Oblique Industries (AUS) with his '12-step remix' of 'Ask Yourself'.
What a winner. Check out an interview with the winner on Facebook.com/burn. They take home €2,500 worth of audio and music technology vouchers from AVID and SoundCloud. In addition to that, it will feature as a track on a digital version of Plastikman's Arkives, entitled Replikants Burn, which also features the runners-up and special mentions.
Richie also selected five runners-up, who receive an M-Audio Torq MixLab DJ kit, a Pro Tools Recording Software Package and a SoundCloud lite account. Congrats. The five who were chosen are as follows and in no particular order...
1. Orange+BFlex Remix
