Remix a track, get your work pressed on vinyl. All you have to do is win a competition...
Remix competition: Winning tune pressed on vinyl

To mark the release of Microwave's debut single The Sound Of No Good I have decided to launch a remix competition in search for talented producers who want to get their music signed and printed on vinyl along with some big names in the industry. You can listen to a full length version of the track at Microwave's MySpace profile:

The general framework of Horseplay Records is Minimal Techno/House/Electro, but that should serve you as a guideline rather than a strict limitation to your creative approach. I am looking for interesting new wave dancefloor music, opposing the clichés of electronic music creation and pushing the boundaries of perception to a new level.

If you are interested in taking part in the remix competition send a message to and I will arrange the transfer of a bank with sample extracts from the master track.

Competition Rules:

  • You should submit only one remix per artist name.
  • Encode your final version as a WAV or AIFF (24-bit preferred over 16-bit)
  • The file should be sent via and addressed to
  • With your submission, include your:
    • Artist name
    • Real name
    • Website address
    • Mailing address
    • Biography
    • Photograph
  • Closing date for entry submission: 1.Sept.2007

Good luck and productive knob tweaking.
