Finally, the results are in! The quality of entries this month stirred up much debate amongst our staff jury, making this an incredibly difficult month to determine a winner and runner-ups. After much deliberation, this is how our LOST IN THE ECHO Free-For-All MMU for August 2012 shaped up: WINNER: zwieR.Z CLICK HERE TO LISTEN We really liked the approach zwieR.Z took this month, whose LOST IN THE ECHO remix possesses real emotional intensity. Through the use of synths and orchestra, zwieR.Z created an atmospheric and memorable reinterpretation of LITE that we felt was very polished and professional-grade. It should be reiterated this was an incredibly close race. We had to choose three runner-ups this month as opposed to our customary two, just to highlight the remixing talent of our community members. Here are your (alphabetical) runners up! RUNNER-UP: DJIntensity CLICK HERE TO LISTEN DJIntensity's up-tempo remix had an almost Numb-esque style to its synths. We really liked how he manipulated Mike and Chester's vocal parts to provide a fresh take on the song. We respect the degree of difficulty this involved without an official vocals track. Be sure to stick around for the outro! RUNNER-UP: minuteforce CLICK HERE TO LISTEN Minuteforce's take on LOST IN THE ECHO starts off as an airy, lower-tempo remix but steadily builds into a great bridge and conclusion that is only fully appreciated when you listen to it via headphones. RUNNER-UP: Xefuzion (Xefuzion is Ded Remix) CLICK HERE TO LISTEN Xefuzion did a great job remixing and extending LOST IN THE ECHO into an electro-rock epic. We especially enjoyed how he layered so many musical parts yet managed to still retain the remix's cohesiveness. Keep an ear out for the subtle piano in the background during the verses. We would be remissed if we didn't thank our community for their hard work this month. This month was challenging due to the lack of an official acapella for LOST IN THE ECHO, meaning remixers were limited in what they could do with vocals. Let's see what you can do in September's Ambient/Dark Ambient Free-For-All!
