Laptoprockers has teamed up with indie-pop band Vanity Theft from Ohio, USA to run a new remix contest. You have 5 tracks to remix from their album. Winners will  see their remixes released and receive prizes from Ableton and D16 Group Audio Software

Here some details:

All girl indie-pop band Vanity Theft (Ohio, USA) are looking for entries for their full-length remix album, which they will be putting out this summer. 

With a moniker that sounds like the name of a Joan Jett B-side, the foursome fit right into the storied legacy of all-girl bands bent on debunking benign all-girl conventions. For instance, “Trainwreck” is about finding sexual empowerment in a dysfunctional relationship, while “Bit by Bit” uses stabbing riffs and retro synths to soundtrack being obsessed with the wrong person.

With 5 songs to choose from, this is our biggest contest to date! Remix any of the supplied Vanity Theft songs to enter the contest. 

We have teamed up with Ableton and D16 Group Audio Software, a Polish developer of virtual instruments and FX, to fill the prize pool for this remix contest. Thanks!

Bonus prize! In addition to prizes for the three best remixers, there’s a bonus prize for the best Vanity Theft mashup song. Create an original track using vocals from at least 2 songs.

Prizes: There are 4 great prizes to win, the best entries also have a chance to be included on Vanity Theft’s remix album this Summer. 

1st Prize
The maker of the winning remix walks away with a full download version of Ableton Live 8, the favourite software of some of the best remixers in the world. Download free trial copy.
2nd Prize
One runner up can pick his favourite drum machine and effect of choice from D16.
3rd Prize

Bonus Prize
