Laptoprockers has announced the Denis A ‘Heroin’ Remix Contest, a chance to win a release on Denis’ DAR label and FabFilter plug-ins.

Ever since Denis Alentieff became Denis A in 2007, Moscow’s rising star is making his mark around the globe with each new release.

“Legends of dance music culture such as Danny Tenaglia, Nick Warren, Timo Maas, Dave Seaman and John Digweed have supported my music and have taken part in label action. It is pleasant to see and hear the tracks in sets by Sasha, Hernan Cattaneo and Jimmy Van M.”

With his music, Denis A blurs the boundaries between genres via progressive, techno, deep dub and minimal influences – and the remix track ‘Heroin’ is no exception. In this remix contest you are asked to infuse your own remix talents and create your own remix cocktail. ‘Heroin’ is most certainly not a downer in this incarnation, more of a pure peak time euphoric progressive future classic.

“The composition was named ‘Heroin’ as such associations and emotions arise at me when I think about this forbidden drug. I absolutely do not use any narcotic drugs myself.”

Win synthesizers and audio effect plug-ins supplied by FabFilter. If the winning remix has the edge Denis is looking for, it will be released on his DAR label. Your track on vinyl!

The deadline to enter your remix is August 15, 2010.
