Remix an SGX track for SGXRMX3, but with a twist!

The short of it: I need two awesome remixers to remix two of my tracks for inclusion on my soon to be released videogame’s free soundtrack. Remixes are likely to end up in an expansion or new version of the videogame as well!

The long:  The game (BigBot AudioDrop) is using 6 of my songs (which have already appeared on Hero of the Grey Area and Wonderful Bite) which will be on the soundtrack album, and I felt one remix of each song would be a great bonus to include on the album.  The album will be available at a pay-what-you-want price (prices starting at free!), and will also be on iTunes, Amazon, Zune, etc.  I’ve already contacted four of my reliable, talented friends to do four of the songs, so I’m putting the call out publicly for the last two.

In addition, my game developer partner and I are very interested in releasing sequels or expansion packs to the game that include new songs.  Remixes done for this project will be among the first songs considered to be included in the game as an expansion pack or possible sequel/new version.

I need one remix each for:

And All That Between
(Update: I’ve recently got a good taker for this one. Don’t hesitate to let me know if you’re interested in case he drops out)

Die Anyway

I’m prepared to reward $50 for a remix to be used in the free album, and will pay another $50 to the remixer in the (likely) event that it is included in the game. 

This is getting long, so more (important) details are past the break.

Since I only need two remixes and cannot use extra remixes for this project, I’d like to try my best to not waste your guys’ time and effort needlessly by making duplicate remixes.  I’d love more remixes, but I only have space for and can only reward for two in this project.  Any remixes, as always, will be posted here on this site for free download, and you are free to distribute them for free via your own websites.

So, if you are interested in remixing one of these two tracks and having it included in this project, please send me an email letting me know which song you’d like to remix, and a link to a website where I can stream some of your past material.  I hate to make you ‘audition’, but I need to check and see if you’ve got some skills before I give you the go-ahead to spend your time working on this with the expectation of being included in the project, unless I already know you well and know you’re music is solid.

I will update the website when I fill a slot for each of the two songs available. 

There are a couple of specifications I need to request the songs to follow in order for them to work in the game:

  • I need you to deliver a version that is between 3 and 5 minutes long for the game.  If you want to make a version that is longer than that for the soundtrack version, that would be great, but the game requires songs of that length.
  • The song must be in a duple-meter (if in doubt, stick to 4/4 time as most electronica is in), and there must not be any tempo changes or derivations in time.
  • For the game, there must be a beat present the majority of the time (the game has rhythmic elements, and constant, clear rhythm must be audible 90% of the time).  If you don’t want your kick and snare in there all the time, some simple 8th-note hat tapping in quieter sections will do the trick.  You can ignore this stipulation for a album version of the remix if you chose to provide one.
  • You must be willing to sign and mail or scan and email a document which states I own the rights to your remix. You may still distribute your remix for free however you like. 

Deadline: I need the remixes delievered to me by April 25th.

My listeners are the best.  Happy remixing!
