News: A couple of cool remix competitions

Okay - two remix contests for the price. Admittedly that's, erm, free... but you get the point. BlackPlastic thought it made sense to double up.

First up is Ernesto's forthcoming single, 'Bassline', due for release on 29 June on Exceptional Records. Hailing from Sweden Ernesto makes soulful electro - imagine the clean considered music of Junior Boys but with added funk or just check it out in the player below:


Ernesto - Bassline (out June 29th) by exceptionalrecords


You can download the zip file containing the tracks components here and the winner, chosen by Ernesto, will receive an Exceptional Records goody bag including a signed copy of the single plus their track will be streamable from the Exceptional website with a link back to your own site. To enter the competition email your entry to [competition closed] as a low res MP3 by 6 July with the subject line ‘Ernesto Remix comp’. Include your name, contact number and website address if you have one.

The next competition is in celebration of Tim Sheridan and his notorious veryverywrongindeed night coming to Fabric's sister club Matter on Saturday 27 June.  It's set to be an interesting night and Tim will be joined by Spektre and Jesper Dahlback on the decks.  Most of the tracks Tim plays are from his VVWI record label, picked up from wherever he finds them on his travels and his determination to avoid the majors is evident in this competition, where he is inviting budding bedroom producers to remix the forthcoming single 'Villain'.

The winners will get invited along as VIPs to the night at Matter and Tim will play the track out on the night.  Head over to the VVWI website for details.  The closing date is 25 June.

Competition: Win tickets to New Year's Eve at the O2

There are actually three different events going on at the O2 for New Year's this year and whilst Elton John or Hed Kandi may not take your fancy the party at matter just might, featuring as it does 2 many DJs, The Whip live, Joakim and Riton amongst others.

O2 are giving away tickets to their customers through an image capture competition where you can take a photo of one of their current unbranded 'Priority' ads and send it from your phone for the chance to win.  Rather than forcing you to trawl the streets looking for a billboard we thought we would just post an exlusive image they let us have here - if you fancy a chance at winning you can apparently just take a photo of it and text it to 63333.  There's also an iPhone app coming for those that are a little MMS-deprived.
