Head over to the official remix page or read below for the contest info straight from Seth and Michelle of 8bW.
Sony has launched a remix contest over at their Acid Planet site! The contest is to find the best remix of our tune "Chip On Your Shoulder" off our new "Electric High EP". You can download a zip file of the songs chiptune loops/sound fx and an Acid project file format here:
If you dont have any software or even any gear to make the remix, NO PROBLEM! Sony has provided a FREE copy of ACID for PC computers on the remix site for you to use. Mac users can download the loop zip file and use the loops to make a remix as well in programs like Garage band, etc. However Mac users wont be able to use the acid project file.
There are NO restrictions on how the remix is made! You can use all chip related devices, modern softsynths, or anything else that tickles your fancy. Also, you do not have to use ACID software to enter! You can make your remix any way you like. :)
