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!
