    March 2013 Monthly Mix-Up WINNER: LPU-12 Free-For-All

    Last month we decided to let all hell break loose by allowing you to cut, splice, mash and tweak songs from the LPU 12 CD. It turns out the genre choice was a fantastic idea because the quality of March's submissions was AMAZING! On the surface we must congratulate all participants on the quality of their submissions, but deep within our souls we curse you silently for making the judging process so difficult. Without further ado, the winner of March 2013's Monthly Mix-Up is:

    WINNER

    m_macdonald: Asbestos/Given Up (Mash Up)

    Click here to listen!

    We had three entries which combined Given Up with its demo, Asbestos, but m_macdonald simply did it the best. With vocal manipulation, an added electronic loop, and multi-layering of the two tracks, m_macdonald did not just make a remix: he reinvented Given Up. Make sure you stick around for the climactic and chaotic outro!

    RUNNERS UP

    2nd: LizziCloverman: Somewhere I Belong (Clarity Remix)

    Click here to listen!

    Lizzi's Somewhere I Belong remix came in at a very close second. With a very creative industrial-esque backbeat comprised of Clarity, Papercut and New Divide, Lizzi managed to give Somewhere I Belong a fresh, atmospheric yet electronic twist. The bridge, complete with Krwlng strings, is a standout moment on the track.

    3rd: minuteforce: Army of Flares

    Click here to listen!

    Intrigued by the title? We were! Army of Flares starts out as a fantastic instrumental comprised of Clarity, Debris, Program, and Burn It Down. Throw in the bridge vocals to Blackout and you literally get lost between the layers of this richly-produced track. Some remixes feel like two separate songs forced on top of one another, but this track truly feels like an original song. Great work!

    4th: DJIntensity: Debris (When I'm Gone) - Eminem/Linkin Park

    Click here to listen!

    This fantastic mash-up from DJIntensity is what one would envision a Fort Minor/Eminem collaboration would sound like. On the surface, Debris and When I'm Gone feel like they would be an incongruent mix, but Eminem's rapid-fire verses are complimented very nicely by Mike's vocals in the chorus of Debris.

    Honorable Mentions

    Uncertain Sound: Linkin Park (Homecoming) vs. 30 Seconds To Mars (Closer To The Edge)

    Click here to listen!

    Zak: Multi-Genre LPxEDM Mash-Up

    Click here to listen!

    Once again we would like to thank ALL participants for their submissions. Even if you didn't place in March's contest, April's 90's Rock competition is another opportunity to strut your stuff!

    Well done to everyone! These were some quite fantastic remixes, almost a shame to number them at all.

    Mike, that mash-up is sick!

    I feel like we start getting into a really dangerous territory when we start trying to write around the idea of what some third-party thought of what our music should be when they can't even comprehend on how to tell us what that thing is, or guide us in a direction that can get us there musically or creatively, or anything. You know, having to have a specific type of song; forcing music to conform to that frame of mind is causing a lot of noise to be in and it's getting away from the song. (...) Let's stop trying to do things that other people want us to do, and let's get back to just being fluid, and writing songs, coming with ideas, and being like, "hey, let's check this out", and grading things, and being honest.

    I'd hate to vote for a single favorite. I enjoy all of them. Now I'm picturing what an actual mash up with Linkin Park and Eminem would sound like.

    Wow, thank you guys - it's a great privilege to continue to be a part of the MMU community, and I'm delighted to have been picked as winner this month.

    With that said, I do need to shout out my friend Minuteforce for perhaps my all-time favourite MMU entry - that Blackout vocal sample still gets me man!

    Lizzi Lizzi Lizzi Lizzi! If memory serves me right, it's almost a year since your win in 'The Raid' contest which had that awesome bit with the My December/Papercut thingy? Another killer entry... the groove of the Papercut beat with the Krwling strings is, och, intense

    Congrats also to DJIntensity, Uncertain Sound and Zak. Another awesome month.
    BundleOfNerves: Mike just comes out of the gates swinging, though.

    October '11 (Dance-Pop), November '11 (Mash-Ups), March '12 (Hip Hop) and November '12 (Castle Of Glass)

    Wow, so many good entries this month! My favorite is Minuteforce, one of the best remixes I've heard from the MMU so far. I'll download them all.

    These are fantastic work! Personally most of these are leagues better than some of the "official" remixes out there. Theres so much more creativity in these than most remixes these days - just a boring old effected vocals over a generic dance/club beat. How is that a "remix"?

    Thank-you, guys! I'm just glad I managed to get the thing done at all!

    I also have to thank the rest of the community for all the lovely SoundCloud notifications over the last month.

    The track title was generated using the best LPA-based focus group I could find. It took us hours. Thank-you to them.


    Hold onto what is there ... and count the saints

    m_macdonald's entry is probably one of my favorite out of all the MMU so far. Sick track!
