MaincourseBOTRemixFinal

When we teamed up with Main Course, iZotope, and ToneDen to announce a remix competition for our friend BOT’s track “Monky Man,” we weren’t expecting to receive over 120 submissions.

We’re excited to announce that we were able to pick three winners for the competition, with the grand prize winner receiving iZotope’s Ozone 6, an official release on Main Course’s “The Remixes Vol 05″ as promised, and a prize pack from the Main Course store.

The two runners up will be featured in the upcoming Main Course Holiday Pack, however all finalists will receive free upgrades ToneDen premium account for life.

The grand prize winner is…

Brisbane-based musician Low Parse! We were captivated by his energetic rendition of the track and have had it on repeat since our first listen.

Our two runners up include NiQW

And DOM DIAS.

The rest of the finalists can be heard in this set:

It was difficult picking through all the winners, and we couldn’t be more excited to have teamed up with ToneDen, iZotope, Main Course 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!

Almost a year ago, the Miami based outfit Sluggers crept onto the scene with a 4-track package on OWSLA. It was a blend of thumping, warehouse inspired techno that raised more than a few eyebrows. They followed that up with a release earlier this year on Fools Gold, which saw them shift gears slightly to glitchy synth work and wobbly bass growls, however, their latest efforts seem to have reverted back to their original approach. Their Voyager EP, which dropped yesterday and is available for free download courtesy of Main Course, sees the duo make considerable strides on honing their sound. The standout track is Particles, which is an absolute weapon that’s fully equipped with a bellowing siren and processed snares that are fit for an ENTER stage. Contact follows similar suit with tidy percussion work and slick vocal chops, and Horizon closes the EP out with dirtybird-esque breaks and bass design. This release is another reason why Main Course has quickly become one of the most influential labels in the game right now, and should also give Sluggers some proper momentum heading into 2015.

In today’s frenetic war zone of DJs and producers and ghost-producers and managers and publicists and every other person clinging on to the EDM machine, it’s pretty damn difficult to get noticed. For Astronomar, his brash and aggressive club music demands the respect it deserves. Back in a big, bad way is his 4 track Mutant Club EP, which dropped today on the Main Course imprint. Aside from releasing tracks on esteemed outfits like BNR & OWSLA, he’s been running the Main Course label with good pals Neoteric and Bot, who is featured on ‘Drama’ (my favorite from the package). Devoid of cheese, you’ll find drums thicker than redwoods and sound designs more manic than mental wards. And for the next month, all tracks are available for free download, so get to clicking.

After a string of releases with Main Course and OWSLA, Wuki has firmly established himself in the ranks of producers blurring the genre lines while being firmly rooted in bass.
