John ’00′ Fleming sits in for a Computer Music Producer Masterclass session. This entire series discusses the process of remixing Jean Michel Jarre’s famouse “Oxygene” track. Part one, John discusses how he worked with his partner sharing files due to long distance, how he prefers to design his own pad sounds versus flipping through pre-sets and the benefits there-of.

See http://bassling.blogspot.com/search/label/park%20remix%20… for detail on this project to remix parks within Leeton for the centenary of the town.
“Here’s the result of my visit to the park that’s at the heart of Leeton and the setting for many town events, like the upcoming Light Up Leeton concert for Christmas. I’ve stuck to the playground here though. “

The monthly Beatport remix contests are a chance for producers out there to show their skills. This time Erasure and their song ‘I lose myself’ is ready to be remixed.
Here’s all the details from the Beatport website:
Ready to get lost in the music? Beatport is proud to announce Erasure’s “I Lose Myself” remix contest, featuring the pumping electro-disco single from the band’s new album for MUTE, “Tomorrow’s World.”
If you a resident of US, EU, Switzerland, Iceland, or Norway, this is your chance to collaborate with two of synth-pop’s veritable icons, Andy Bell and Vince Clarke (himself a founder of Depeche Mode and Yazoo), along with the pop producer Frankmusik; and the parts to the single lend themselves to a vast array of remix possibilities, from filthy dubstep to stadium-grade electro house.
The winning remix will rack up over $5000 in prizes including a TRAKTOR Scratch Pro 2, TRAKTOR S2, Novation Launchpad, Ableton Live 8, Elektron Octatrack, iZotope Stutter Edit, Sounds To Sample Elements Library and $200 in Beatport credits. The MUTE label team will narrow down their selections to 10 finalists; those 10, along with Beatportal’s top 10 community-voted remixes, will then move on to the final round, with Erasure themselves selecting the grand-prize winner.
The submissions process begins on October 25, and the window for entries closes on Monday, November 11 10.00PM MST. Download the remix parts to get started.

Josh explains how the “meta-remix” came about — by limiting to 15-second samples, and pooling results, an entire community of producers was able to work collaboratively:
I admit that this is slightly in my own interest, since I’m on this album (as “ioflow”). But even though this is the first album I’ve ever appeared on, being new to the world of electronic music production, what’s really newsworthy is that it’s another outstanding effort by all the monome artists. these guys are super-talented.
This MCRP theme: the meta-remix project. Each participant grabbed a 15-second sample from a previous MCRP track, and submitted the unaltered clip to the pool. the participants then used the pool to craft their own original tracks.
Man, what they did is crazy. I had access to the samples and I still can’t tell how they got those sounds. they’re a fine buncha talented
folks, so maybe this is a news item of interest: monomers around the world coming together to create a free album, created at least in part
with free software (i even used Windows software on Linux), using tracks previously made freely-available on other MCRP albums.
The English electronic music duo Goldfrapp have remixed Lady Gaga’s “Judas”. A video was released on the official Lady Gaga YouTube channel. In the meantime Goldfrapp fans are discussing whether or not this was a submission on spec or not (on spec meaning that it is an unpaid mix). Whatever the reason is, just judge for yourself.
Goldfrapp are currently working on a new album. The band which is currently labelless will be releasing a ‘Best Of’ album in Fall/Winter 2011.
Howard Jones has started the ‘ReWork Howard Jones’ project. The ReWork project will give music producers, both rising stars and old hands alike, the chance to remix / recreate / ReWork some of Howard Jones’ finest records. The project launches on April 18th with the release of remix parts for “Automaton”, a track taken from his 1985 platinum selling album, “Dream Into Action”. Beyond April 18th, Howard and the team will continue to release sets of remix parts for a number of past classics; tracks picked from a music repertoire spanning in-excess of 25 years.
Interested parties ‘need not toil in vein’. Whilst the motivation of remixing an original synth-pop icon might be enough for many, Jones and the team will be paying special attention to the contributors that attract both their ear and the attention of the community peers. With copyrights returned and a burgeoning list of A-list studio hacks interested in reworking Howard, a new album concept has been born; details of which will be announced soon. What can be confirmed is that the overall ‘winner(s)’ will become part of said album concept.
If you are interested in getting involved, all ReWork Howard Jones news, announcements updates, and communications, including the release of new audio parts, can be discovered via the offical blog and content hub, www.reworkhowardjones.info , first.
