An Iceland duo takes first honours in Proton's remix contest but there'll be no rest for the label; the second contest kicking off today.
Iceland duo R&M -- Roofuz and Mr.Minute -- have won the first of Proton Music’s remix competitions with their interpretation of Digital Witchcraft’s “Fingerpaint”. The win caps off a nice month for the pair who also collaborate as Funk Harmony Park, responsible for the latest release "My Truth" out this month on Fade Records.
The winning remix was chosen by Digital Witchcraft from the ten shortlisted entries with the Proton crew selecting the Welcome Back To Earth Remix made by Opencloud's Blake Potter and Corey Spengler as the Runner-up.
Despite the conclusion of the contest, there'll be no time to relax for Proton; today marking the start of the remix contest of the second Proton Music release, ‘Abbreviated Funk’, a funky and glitchy peak time progressive house number from Canadian producer Formulate or Justin Humber, who has had releases on Smight's Cure Recordings and along with friend Davin Greenwell, runs Pacific Front Recordings.
The second contest is sponsored by Propellerheads' Reason 3.0 and will run for six weeks. The deadline for submission of remixes is June 25th, 2005. The winner will receive a full release on the Proton Music label, Reason 3.0 and the Reason Drumkit ReFill.
