Giveaway

SMD-whorl-LP-orange-main

This month saw the release of the idiosyncratic new album, Whorl, from the genius minds of Simian Mobile Disco — stripping back their usual arsenal of analog equipment and using only 2 modular synths, two sequencers, and a mixer to record over an hour of expansive and atmospheric electronica live in the California desert.

Following up the innovative album’s release, James and Jas of SMD have taken Whorl on the road, hitting nine dates in North America in September along with a string of European dates running into December. This week, the guys come through Los Angeles for their anticipated live performance at the El Rey Theatre, and in advance of Thursday’s show, the pioneering duo have given us a signed vinyl copy of Whorl along with a pair of tickets to the LA show.

Enter to win through Punchtab below, and if you haven’t already, make sure to listen to the incredible new album in full w/ visuals on YouTube.

When we teamed up with ToneDen, Icon Collective, and iZotope to announce our remix competition for our talented friend Madeaux’s single “whatchawannado,” we weren’t expecting to receive over 400 submissions.

We’re excited to announce that we were able to pick three winners for the competition, with the grand prize winner winning iZotope’s BreakTweaker Expanded and an hour long mentor session from LA’s Icon Collective, while our two runners up receive $50 each.

The grand prize winner is…

The UK-based beat-smith Eyesz!  With his slow-paced and relaxed recreation of the track offering up a fresh, euphoric edge, we were love at first listen.

Our two runners up include Intrusive Thoughts

And Little White Bird.

It was difficult picking through all the winners, and we couldn’t be more excited to have teamed up with ToneDen, iZotope, and Icon Collective to offer such an awesome opportunity. Congratulations to all the winners and great job to all those who entered! We’ll have more remix competitions in the future so stay tuned to look out for those.

Thank you again to all who chose to participate!
