Kid Koala Releases New Album As Mini Gramophone

Time and time again we stress the importance of getting your fans involved with your music. Whether you host a remix contest, make an iPhone app or generally think out of the box when promoting your music. Here is a great example of a creative way that Canadian DJ, Kid Koala, released his music with his fans. He made the CD packaging for his recent record “12 Bit Blues” into a DIY mini record player with a mini record inside the CD box. Extremely creative, innovative, and a memorable event for any casual fan. Beyond this particular record, Kid Koala has made his past concert experiences interactive as well.

More power to you Kid Koala! Share your creative ways of interacting with your fans below!!

Dredg Announces Remix Contest Winners

After weeks of careful deliberation, dredg has selected the winners of the remix contest they ran with MixMatchMusic. Back in February, dredg asked fans to remix “Gathering Pebbles” and gave them two months to get busy. Out of 39 amazing submissions, dredg has picked Albino 9 as the Grand Prize winner! The remix featured a masterful layering of big beat drums cut up and mixed with synths to give the song a great industrial electronic edge.  In addition to getting a bunch of cool dredg schwag, Albino 9’s remix will be officially released by dredg on iTunes and Albino 9  will be granted a royalty percentage.

Dredg also selected two runner up winners — Al the Pal, for his “SlowMo” remix, and Syte for his drum and bass rework of the song. They will both receive a bundle package that includes a signed The Pariah, The Parrot, The Delusion CD, a t-shirt and a pair of tickets to a dredg show of their choice. Thank you to everyone that participated and congrats to the winners!!
