FUNKAGENDA PICKS HIS WINNER...
In August we gave details of a remix/DJ competition our fave tech-nician Funkagenda put on the table (www.dirtysmart.com/clubbingnews/504.html).
The rules were simple- remix his track 'Shinjuku', bang it in a 1 hour mixtape, then submit it to the man himself...
The results are in...
and the winner is....
ALEX DIMOU from Berlin, Germany! Congratulations!!!
A word from the man with the red face:
The reason this mix stood out for me was simple. I barely knew ANYTHING on the tracklist yet when I listened through it I could not stop nodding my head. What Alex did with my track was great too. He took my elements + turned it into HIS sound. He didn't try to impress me by making a "bomb" or by going for something that is Beatport fodder. He made something that sounds exactly like what he plays. That, in my opinion is the sign of a great remixer...
So, well done Alex!!! You will be joining myself, Norman Doray + Paul Thomas in the main room at Ministry Of Sound on December the 3rd!
