Competition - 1999
The 1999 Remix Competition was started
during the month of July 1999 and was finally closed in October
1999. The competition invited 34 brilliant remixes and created mayhem
for the judges. The quality of the entries delayed the decision
on the two winners until May 2000.
All are worth mentioning but I personally
enjoyed NAABs "The Woman With The Fire
In Her Eyes", Chris Bentleys "Way
Way Out" which turned "Way
into a squelching orbiting beefy track, Rich Labarcas jittering
funky acid wrenching rendition of "Nothing
Left", Eddie Pauls chilled version of "Forever",
DJ Faskils 18 minute mammoth epic of "Halcyon"
and Whiggys dark and deep version of "Crash
Two remixes piped the above to the
post. Both had caught the judges attention for their remix idea
and overall execution. Both had remixed the track in a very unique
style and moved it towards the edge of its genre. Intricacys version
of "Attached" no longer featured
any of its original and trademark analogue sounds instead it was
replaced with a synthetic orchestra. Tone Matrixs effect driven
remix of "Way Out" climaxed
with male vocals, a theremin and a harpsichord - Box style!
The 1999 Remix Winners are:-
Remix 10 - Intricacy - Attached
Remix 25 - Tone Matrix - Way
Out (Tone Matrix Mix)
