    LPA Monthly Mix-Up October 2012: I'll Be Gone/Victimized/In My Remains WINNER

    This month was by far one of the most creative and hardest to judge months that we've ever had in LPA Monthly Mix-Up History. In a MMU first we used a theme suggested by Mike Shinoda that challenged Linkin Park fans to pick from one of three songs ("I'll Be Gone", "In My Remains" or "Victimized") and remix it into a style and genre of their choice in a Triple Free-For-All. The resulting entries were nothing short of outstanding, and we thank our members for their wonderful entries. Without further ado, we present to you the winner and runners up:

    WINNER: minuteforce (I'll Be Gone)
    Click here to listen!

    One of the runners up in last month's competition, minuteforce came back with a vengeance and rose to the top of the ranks with his atmospheric and orchestral reinterpretation of "I'll Be Gone". Featuring a haunting orchestra over ambient electronic synths, this remix is an impressive re-interpretation of a new Linkin Park classic and stands out as our favorite remix for October. Great work minuteforce!

    And here are your runners-up, in alphabetical order:

    RUNNER-UP: davidkyoku (In My Remains Piano Remix)

    RUNNER-UP: DirtyBlup (I'll Be Gone)
    Click here to listen!

    RUNNER-UP: m_macdonald (Victimized Hip-Hop Remix)
    Click here to listen!

    RUNNER-UP: ShurpB (Victimized / In My Remains)
    Click here to listen

    It should be stated again that this month was very hard to judge, and all finalists were very close in the voting process. There were a lot of absolutely fantastic entries, and we thank everyone for their participation. We look forward to hearing your take on another LIVING THINGS song for the month of November!

    Here are a few of our other favorites:

    Many congratulations to minuteforce for a well, well deserved win. An awesome interpretation which the band should be paying attention to for sure

    Thanks again LPA for selecting me as a runner up, that's a huge boost as always. This might actually be my personal favourite of the various LP remixes I've done, and I'm really glad you enjoyed it!

    Good thinking in merging the 2nd post with the first post Zane. Kinda pointless of me to have a double post.

    No problem. Just thought I'd do a quick edit!

    I actually really liked your remix. Slick beat with a great reggae feel

    THANK-YOU, GUYS - I was really sure m ^ would win this round but I'm at least glad to see his entry be named a runner-up. For the last couple of rounds, I was pretty damn happy with even having placed at all so this comes as a huge surprise!

    A fair few people helped me out with critiques and suggestions. m and Nish in particular listened through several revisions as they appeared, so thank-you to you guys and, also, to everyone else who left comments about the final version which I put down in the comp thread. I did value your criticisms and I'll be taking them into account for whatever I'm doing next

    Several people came up to me in the wake of the September round and asked if I would provide an entry for the October round; I told them that I was lacking inspiration and was pretty certain no good ideas would come to me before the deadline. Probably won't jump to conclusions like that again - hope I did you guys proud

    Of course, a huge thank-you to this community and the staff who take care of these remix competitions! Back in 2009, I'd only made a couple of Linkin Park remixes while I was a complete newbie to audio editing; after that, I thought I'd never have a good idea for a Linkin Park remix ever again. Fast-forward to this year and, suddenly, I've made four or five remixes of Linkin Park songs in the space of a few months and it's entirely thanks to LPAssociation.

    The vocal effekt/melody of Mike's verse in m-mcdonald's re-interpretation of victimized is pretty amazing and I love the vibe of the track, Minuteforce's remix is really good aswell and gives me chills everytime I listen to it and last but not least I like DirtyBlup's version of I'll be Gone for having a totally different style than the original track and still sounding good. Those three actually ended up on my mp3-player

    And congrats to Minuteforce for winning this (respectively last) month

    Congrats on your win, Tony! Really enjoyed your mix this month and it was well-deserved.
    And Mike, your remix was truly sick. Such a great angle to go with on Victimized, great work!
    To all the other runners-up, really good work! As always, I'm looking forward to the next mix-up!


    Edit: Btw, it looks like the link to "davidkyoku (In My Remains Piano Remix)" leads to "Numbient" by DOLG A.P? That can't be right.

    Thanks for that, SoA. Fixed. And apologies to david!

    I really dug david's version because the vocals sounded similar to Trent Reznor. Cool to imagine him covering a Linkin Park song (although it'll never happen). You are very talented, David!

    I don't really like I'll Be Gone, but minuteforce's remix is really awesome! Great work, especially the ending.

    Congrats to everyone else, too!

    EDIT: m_macdonald's remix is sick!

    Minuteforce your remix is awesome. Loved macdonald's remix too. I'm surprised mine is even mention in the ''other favourites'' list. I really like DirtyBlup's remix too. Reminds me of Pendulum.

    That month was just awesome! Congratulations to minuteforce! Pretty cool remix!
    Though, I have to admit that I thought m_mcdonald's remix is going to win.
    Anyhow....Good job, guys!

    This was the best month in MMU history for me.

    My favorites are minuteforce's (better than the original IBG in my opinion), m_macdonald's (you are one talented mofo, MaccyD), and DirtyBlup's incredible entries, but I enjoyed all the remixes listed in the news post.

    Well done everyone!
