Laptoprockers announces Bonus Prize for Eddie The Gun Remix Contest

Laptoprockers has announced a bonus prize for its Eddie The Gun Remix Contest.

Laptoprockers Eddie The Gun Remix Contest

Here’s some interesting news concerning the remix contest by Laptoprockers in collaboration with Slanted Black Records for Eddie the Gun’s track “Don’t be Afraid.” Given the feedback on the contest page so far, it’s fair to conclude Laptoprockers can reckon on many submissions by great participants. When they discussed this with Craig Mitchell (Slanted Black’s label manager) over the weekend, he spontaneously came up with a very promising idea.

“Why not ask the three winners to also submit one of their own tracks for consideration of release on a special Laptoprockers EP containing their original tracks, in addition to the Remix EP? This way, participants not only have the chance to display their remix talents through the contest, but also can showcase their production skills with their own tracks.”

Unsurprisingly Laptoprockers didn’t have to think twice and immediately pinned Craig down. So they’re happy to announce they have added a very tasty bonus prize to the prize pool, which by the way contains plenty of great music software and goodies already!

In addition of getting their remix released on the “Don’t Be Afraid” Remix EP, the three winners can submit one original track for consideration to be included on a special “Laptoprockers EP” on Slanted Black Records.
Good luck everyone! With over a month to go from now there’s still plenty of time to get your creative juices flowing! Don’t be Afraid!

Laptoprockers Eddie The Gun Remix Contest

Laptoprockers has announced the launch of the ´Eddie The Gun´ Remix Contest.

Laptoprockers teams up with Camilla Romestrand and Slanted Black Records to launch the “Eddie The Gun” Remix Contest. Norwegian born Romestrand has been making waves in the London music scene ever since she arrived there with one single goal: to succeed as a musician. Fronting her band Dolls House, Camilla first enjoyed the taste of success in 2007 – and now she’s back as Eddie The Gun. Title track to the horror movie Chain Letter, her single “Don’t Be Afraid” recently topped MTV’s on-line video charts.

Dubbed to be a singer “that drips with so much sex she jellifies the legs of any boy or girl watching!” by UK music magazine NME, “Don’t Be Afraid” is a rock ballad that fits Camilla like a second skin. Just listen to the track and you’ll know why. It’s all in her voice. According to Craig Mitchell, Slanted Black’s label manager, the track is a big challenge to remix. “I’m really excited to see how the former #1 song gets reimagined! Dubstep, drum & bass, house, tech. Hey, as long as the music is good -THAT is what it’s all about!”

In their sixth remix contest, Laptoprockers managed to find several sponsors to fill the prize pool with some nice prizes. Great mastering plugins from Sonoris Audio Engineering, an Eclipse MP3 player, Third Shift T-shirts and posters from Steez. Plus a release on a remix EP on Slanted Black Records for the best three remixes!

The deadline for entering your submission is 11 January, 2011.
