    Again, SoundCloud's copyright nazis are crazy in regards to anything with BID. I'd recommend not having the full song name listed anywhere, or just say BID.

    If you submit a new remix, it cancels out your old entry and replaces it. So choose wisely.

    One of my favorites so far, but make sure you include the LPA Monthly Mix-Up graphic, title etc somehow in that page if you can in order to be eligible.

    Great to see LPA Mix Up back in action! This has the potential to be a really great month - it's the first time where people will be remixing a (relatively) new song. After all, LIVING THINGS has only really just come out, and we're already remixing stuff from it!

    I might enter myself, although I have a few prior commitments that I have to finish this month. Looking forward to everyone's entries! :)

    I've started messing with some stuff and I'm starting to get some ideas. I'm still not sure I'll be entering though but if I'm satisfied with what I'm working on now, then I'll enter!

    I so wanted to know something. But I do not even know which program to use to synthesize the sounds!

    This is my remix. It might change slightly over the next few weeks but I don't think it will change that much. Anyway, some insight:

    I wanted to give it more of a ATS vibe (added Charlie Chaplin's speech from The Great Dictator). The sounds of the beat are kind of like something you would hear in 80's music (the snares in particular I think). I also wanted to have this really calm yet emotional intro. That ended up becoming the organ-esque intro. Also sampled Empty Spaces for the intro but it's really subtle, I don't think you'll even know it's Empty Spaces.

    Overall, I wanted to keep the vibe of the orignal (that's why I kept more or less the same song structure) but adding some more stuff to the mix, creating a totally different experience when listening to it. The speech is also used to put the song into a different context.

    I hope I succeeded in making a solid remix!

    EDIT: Be sure to listen to this with your headphones! I think the remix is better that way! Thanks!

    Soundcloud's going to be all on you for the title. :lol: I suggest you not mention "BURN IT DOWN" in the titles/tags. Trust me.

    But really nice remix! :D loved the spacey moon-man atmosphere.

    Here's my entry. Good luck to everyone!

    EDIT: I was going for more of a rap/electronic feel with this one. I added some different electronic elements and vocal glitching to spice it up a bit. I hadn't heard any remixes where people changed the structure of the song, so I thought it would set mine apart from all the rest. Enjoy!

    Damn, and I just got my new MacBook ordered... Maybe it'll be here in time to get everything installed so I can enter!

    Loving the remixes so far tho.

    You have to get that Linkin Park Edition Dell Computer... It's the only way. :shinado:

    Well, Here's my entry -

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nX1ZJ--A0Xg&feature=youtu.be

    No special sound effects, twitching & Glitching,
    Just made a brand new instrumental from a bunch of instruments, trying to hybrid (HA!) between analog (Drums & Guitar) and digital sounds (Synths).

    Really hope you'll like it :sweating:
