Aligning Minds – My Heart is Remixed Contest

The Aligning Minds – My Heart is Remixed Contest is officially a wrap!

First and foremost, we want to thank everyone involved: Aligning Minds, SoundCloud, Keith McMillen Instruments, 2cAudio, Original Language, Vision Lab, Mugwort, iZotope, Psymbionic, Nikki Hampson and anyone else we may be forgetting.  The 1st and 2nd place winners will be receiving an amazing prize packs from our partners.

We received over 100 submissions to the contest and were blown away by the amazing, unique, diverse, inspired, and creative submissions. So much so, that it took us much longer to get down to the final 30. Dan and Mike of Aligning Minds, Brede and Psymbionic then used a number system and tallied up the points to decide the finalist.

And without further ado, we present the finalist for the Aligning Minds – My Heart is Remixed Contest.

★ 1ST ★

1st place goes to Ayrun.
He impressed us with his reworking of the melody and harmony. A truly original remix with some additional synths and live drums that only added to the song. Great JoB!

★ 2ND ★

2nd Place goes to Walka / Resonant Language. All the judges really enjoyed the syncopated bassline and vocal edits.

★ 3RD ★

3rd Place goes to one hand clap. This unique remix caught everyone’s attention and wasn’t an immediate winner, but after a few listens it grew on the judges.

★ 4TH ★

4th place goes to Kermode. The judges all enjoyed the toughness of this track.

★ 5TH ★

5th place goes to Anvil Hands. Anvil took the track and really made it his own. His drippy synths and claps remind us of some of favorite producers at the moment.

★ Honorable Mentions ★

There were so many great entries, we’d like to call out shortmanb, Psy Fi, Karmedic, UTR90, Mindaugas Jak, Terrorform and Thrst.
