    Last month, we challenged our awesome remix community by locking them into a theme where they had to remix any track in Linkin Park's repetoire into a Electro-House/Nu-Disco style. November's Monthly Mix-Up round turned out to be one of the most challenging ones to date for our remix community, and that challenge has brought out some truly great entries. We had a feeling from the outset that the quality of the remixes would be high and, eventually, we really did struggle to choose a winner. Here are the entries that we picked out:

    Winner:

    Intensity [DJIntensity]: "Final Masquerade" (Intensity Remix)

    Last month, DJIntensity brought a great Depeche Mode-like homage to the table. This fun-filled, fast paced, glitchy "Final Masquerade" begs demands the listener to get up and shake their money-maker. The distorted guitar-like synth line that Intensity built this remix around makes this remix a little bit more inviting to those who aren't particularly a listener of this genre of music. This remix definitely deserves a (few) listens to fully appreciate the work that went into it. Great job this month, DJIntensity!

    Runners Up:

    Keeping true to the genre, DirtyBlup gave us this astounding instrumental that definitely kept us wanting more. This short-but-sweet take on "Given Up" keeps the listener's attention by commanding the driving beat with searing guitars, epic bass lines and some synth that wants to slap you square in the face. On a side note, I love how this sounds a bit like Rammstein at parts.

    Decay: "Disorder"

    Decay's profanity-laden take on "War" gives an alternate take to a song whose original was the opposite of what this genre stood for. Decay somehow turns this take-no-prisoners punk song into this sample-happy remix that is fun, uneasy and sometimes funny.


    Xefusion brought this "bouncy" take on "Until It's Gone" last month. This "Futuristic" remix leads the listener through a sonic landscape filled with an awesome array of tone in the tom-tom drums, great build ups and ever-so-chill bass driven beats.

    Congratulations to the November MMU winners and thank-you to all of you who entered! We'll be taking a break from the MMU for December, but, you can expect the MMU to return in early 2015!

    Grats! Hopefully next time we do something it'll be in a genre I can do. :)

    It'd be interesting to do orchestral, or just a general free-for-all. Perhaps a free-for-all limited to a particular album or something.
