A new remix contest is running on Fairtilizer by Comet Records. Remix the track Mogoya by Donso and win fantastic prizes: Ableton Live 8, Novation Launchpad, Focusrite Saffire 6 USB and more…don’t hesitate to enter now!

Here the details:

To celebrate the release of Donso’s debut album, Comet Records is very excited to announce the Donso remix project. Rules below:

In collaboration with the good folks at Fairtilizer, Novation and Ableton, Comet Records are offering the opportunity to remix “Mogoya”, a track taken from Donso’s album. A mesmerizing piece of modern Malian electro-pop featuring hypnotic synths, penetrating guitars and N’goni & Gedeon Diarra’s voice raising the hair on the back of your neck.

The band:

Donso (meaning “hunter” in Bambara) is the result of the collaboration of four talented musicians coming from France and Mali: Producer Pierre Antoine Grison (who also releases his own music on Ed Banger Records as Krazy Baldhead), malian vocalist Gedeon Papa Diarra, Guimba Kouyate on Guitars and Djele N’Goni (traditional malian string instruments), Thomas Guillaume on percussions and Donso N’Goni.[...]

The prizes:

The winner will receive a boxed version of Ableton Live 8 along with Ableton goodies, Novation’s latest Launchpad midi controler, and a Fairtilizer Pro account & T-Shirt. His remix will be released in digital format on Comet Records!

The runner-up will receive Ableton Live 8 Intro (download), a Saffire 6 USB audio interface by Focusrite, and a Fairtilizer Pro account & T-Shirt.

Listen the original mix:

Thanks to Pierre for the hit!
