Dubfire, aka Ali Shirazinia, the minimal techno lynchpin who rose to fame as one half of Deep Dish has launched a special iOS remix contest in which you could win a release on on his SCI+TEC digital label.
The competition is being run via the Remiix Dubfire iOS app ($2.99/£1.79/2.39€ from Apple’s App Store) and will be the first time that a record label has ever released an official remix created solely on an iOS device.
The app, for Apple’s iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, allows fans to remix some of Dubfire’s club tracks through a combination of loop manipulation, beat-matching, and powerful digital effects.
This week also saw the launch of an update, adding 'RibCage' and 'Roadkill' to the tracks available taking the total to eight, and including a new Record & Share function that allows users to put the fruits of their labour online.
To enter the remix contest all iOS users need to do is download the Remiix Dubfire app here, remix and record their performance, and then upload their track via the Record & Share function.
After a period of voting (entrants can have friends vote for their remix through a Facebook ‘like’ button) the competition will end on 17th December 2011. Dubfire will then listen to the top 50 most voted-for remixes before selecting his winner.
The Dubfire Remiix Contest launches 17 October 2011 and closes 17 December 2011. The winner will be announced on 17 February 2012.
