    Just saw this, might have already been on here but cant find it.

    "Hello,

    I just thought I'd give you the heads up for our first remix comp. of 2010. We are speaking to a number of your suggested artists for this years competitions, plus we're looking into some of your other requests, I'll keep you posted on how that's going.

    Launching in February, I'm very pleased to let you know that we'll be partnering with Sabre and Critical Recordings, the track to remix will be 'Leaf' taken from the recent Critical Sound album.

    We are still ironing out some of the details but I just thought I'd give you guys the news here. How does that sound?"

    then says

    "Just a quick update whilst I'm here, the stems for the Leaf track have unfortunately been lost, so it won't be that track for the coming competition. Sabre is kindly making a brand new track over the next two weeks especially for the competition, launch will be early March."


    Definitely gonna be on this one!!

    Here's the latest update...

    Our first remix competition in November was an incredible success with nearly 100 producers remixing Icicle's Time To Remember on Shogun Audio.

    So we had our work cut out to top it but I think we've managed it. One of the most anticipated albums of the year is Sabre's A Wandering Journal on Critical Recordings and Sabre has just written a track called One Hundred Teeth specially for this competition.

    You can download the free track below and in a few weeks time you'll get all the parts.
