Burn Studios, in association with Resident Advisor, is excited and delighted to present our freshest remix competition. Man, is it a big one! In the electronic music world they don’t come much more important than Richie Hawtin, and the Burn Studios ambassador and minimal tech legend is putting up one of his tracks as Plastikman for you to remix, mash, meld and reform.
The track in question is ‘Ask Yourself’, the near nine-minute epic which opens 2003’s seminal Closer. Participants can download the remix parts of ‘Ask Yourself’ from this set, with a substantial 18 stems all available for use in your creations.
The winning remixer, as chosen by Richie himself, will take home €2,500 worth of AVID audio equipment and a Soundcloud Pro Plus account worth €250. They will also be presented with the highly anticipated Plastikman Arkives – a made-to-order, comprehensive box set that pulls together all 17 years of the Plastikman story so far.
The winner will also have their track released on the digital version of the Arkives release.
There will also be five runners-up, chosen by Richie for their artistic and technical merit, each receiving an M-Audio Torq MixLab DJ kit, an AVID Recording Studio package and a SoundCloud Lite account!
