New remix contest by Laptoprockers. Remixing one or two tracks from Eat Static (two members of Ozric Tentacles – Merv Pepler and Joie Hinton !): “Sin Quest” or “Up Periscope”. Win six of the best softsynths from Linplug and a release!

Here some details:

20 years ago two members of Ozric Tentacles – Merv Pepler and Joie Hinton – decided to go electronic and they never stopped releasing music with an edge.

If you’ve ever seen Eat Static playing live you know their music can make you feel like you’ve never felt before. Though Joie decided to step back in 2008, Mr. Pepler still is going all the way.
The remix tracks are off two recent albums. Sin Quest is an upbeat trance track, while Up Periscope explores downtempo psychedelic avenues.


Prizes: Win one of six synthesizer plug-ins by LinPlug (over $900 in prizes).

The roots of LinPlug date back to the beginning of computer music. Their first product was a MIDI-Sequencer written in Z80 assembler for the Sinclair Spectrum! Today LinPlug are offering a complete line of quality instrument plug-ins with leading sound characteristics.

1st prize: 2x RMV – LinPlug’s all in one drum solution supporting samples, synthesis, as well as audio & midi loops.
2nd prize: 2x CronoX – Sample mangling according to LinPlug. No boundaries!
3rd prize: 2x Octopus – an FM Synth with a wide range of in-depth programming options. Top notch LinPlug.

The best remix will be included on an upcoming Eat Static release!
Style: Anything goes :)
