Day 356: More to the point

We're now inside the last 10 days of the year, and after another long break I have another quick update about Bang the DJ.

I've entered a bunch of remix competitions over the last few months, and if nothing else they have been invaluable in improving my music production skills. However recently I was excited to find out I had actually been selected as a victor in one! This is great news for me as it at least shows I am making some decent headway, and this is being recognised by already established artists.

So, a pat on the back for myself, and this of course means adding some points to the tally below.

The remix was of Shamanix's excellent 'Blood Drop'. The original and video are below, then followed by my remix.

The official video:

My version:

Also Shamanix himself contacted me and asked if it was ok to release this as part of a remix package... yes I think so!!!

So according to my score card, and a bit of making it up as this eventuality wasn't covered (winning a remix comp) this earns as follows:

Tune on blog = 8

Tune released = 10

Competition win = 15

The last competition win earned me 10, however I have made this 15 due to not mentioning the Pacemaker competition I sneakily won out right a month or so ago. This won me the Pacemaker that I reviewed last Friday.

This mini round of points brings my total up to 73, which is ok considering the lack of effort I have made in the second half of the year.

A further and more complete update on all things Bang the DJ to follow before the end of the year.
