Skint Records and English DJ and record producer Norman Cook, better known as Fatboy Slim  [a], are offering his ‘Weapon Of Choice’ track to be remixed by Beatport’s aspiring producers. ‘Weapon Of Choice’ saw success on both UK and US charts and its accompanying music video, directed by Spike Jonze and featuring Christopher Walken, received cult-like praise.

The opportunity

Starting March 16th, 2010, Beatport users are able to download the remix parts of Fatboy Slim’s ‘Weapon Of Choice’, and then remix it, before uploading it to Beatportal for the voting round.

The prizes

The winners will be divided into 2 categories; 10 user voted (based on the highest number of spins) and 10 editor’s favorites (picked by Beatport’s internal music staff). From these 20 nominees, Skint Records will choose their favorite winning remix, to be released on their label. The winner will also receive a $200 Beatport gift card and Open Lab’s professional studio tool ‘DBeat’.
