Roy’s Iron DNA Launch Remix Competition
Following last month’s confirmation that Anglo-Scottish electronic high priests Roy’s Iron DNA are planning on releasing a full-length remix album this autumn, come further details surrounding the long overdue silence breaker.
The ensemble recently unveiled their success in gaining sturdy backing for the release; from none other than Edinburgh based development agency Creative Scotland , and have now fully hatched their plans for an accompanying remix competition. Working in collaboration with Berwick-upon-Tweed based 360 music authority Travelled Music , the band are inviting Scottish DJ’s of all pedigree and calibre to send them their reworking’s of the song ‘Sunshine’, with the winning remix being scheduled for release on the album alongside those of 8 acclaimed names in Scottish electronic music.
On the subject of the competition, its aims and expectations, RIDNA band leader and founding father Ian S. Thompson said: “it’s a great chance for new artists to express their creativity on a track ready to be released. The remix album will bring together some real heads in the Scottish music scene, so to be up there on an album with such a great bunch of writers is something I wish I had the chance of when I was starting out.”
DJ’s/Producers of all experience levels are invited to submit a remix for the competition, provided they are based in Scotland and can do so before the deadline on September 1st.
