We present you with the winners of the “Dinosaurs With Guns” remix competition that we did together with Sound Pellegrino and Institubes.
“Thanks to the hundred-and-twenty-something people who participated in that remix competition, it took us a bit of time to listen to everything while touring Australia and North America but we picked our top 5 remixes and put together a little selection of a few more cool remixes for you to dig out, complete with humble but hopefully helpful feedback courtesy of the Sound Pellegrino founding fathers Orgasmic and I + Dinosaurs with Guns OG producer Noob’s pick.
#1 – TWR72
Wins a spot on the Dinosaurs With Guns remix EP coming before the end of the summer!
Orgasmic’s opinion: really dope techno warehouse hit, we’ve been following Roger 72 for a while, I used to play his DJ DLG remix, he’s an excellent producer and I really like this new, more techy style of his.
Teki Latex’s opinion: I also remember The Walk & Roger 72 from the MySpace era. What a drastic change in style! This is awesome abrupt mountain climbing techno, it’s a great tool and an absolute weapon for DJs, this is definitely the remix I’m the most likely to play, great job!
#2 – Art Nouveau
Wins 50€ worth of Institubes/Sound Pellegrino items from the Institubes online store!
Orgasmic’s opinion: Really cool melody, has a bit of a white knight II vibe to it, sounds like a potential summer hit.
Teki Latex’s opinion: Art Nouveau are getting better with every track and they embrace their pop side more and more, while keeping it classy and housy, this is a success! Coincidentally this remix uses a bassline melody/harmony very similar to the DOP remix of Renaissance Man’s What is Guru, which proves great minds think alike.
#3 – Gloved Up
Orgasmic’s opinion: sweet baile funk horns mixed with a nice housy vibe, love the melody
Teki Latex’s opinion: awesome bouncy house stomper. I just have a problem with the simpletext voice at the beginning. We needed something with wind instruments so that Roundtable Knights could play it :)
The Gloved Up remix is also Noob’s special pick! Kudos!
#4 – Broke One
Orgasmic’s opinion: really nice one, well produced and right in the vibe of the stuff we dig at the moment, only problem: too much synth in the breakdown
Teki Latex’s opinion: Super nice and original but gets a bit too heavy and repetitive towards the end
#5 – Clouds
Orgasmic’s opinion: Nice groove, solid remix
Teki Latex’s opinion: efficient and tool-esque but a bit too similar to the original
Places 6-12 after the jump.
