The Official Entry Page
Do you have mixing and mastering skills, or perhaps just have an ear for what sounds good? Fair Use Video is offering raw tracks from their single, Baby Dancer, for anyone to remix. Some contests may restrict the participant by only allowing packaged samples under a unified platform… not here. The .wav files are packaged as a zip file, or as a bundled Ableton Live Pack. You can mix using any DAW. You can add your own sounds. You rearrange and do what ever you want with these tracks. We just want to hear what you can do.
Oh yeah… the Dance Off part. Wanna contribute in video format??? Make a dance compilation, or independent video for any of the remixes found on the site. No limitations here as well. Make whatever you want and send it to us. Of course, we ask that you please use discretion and common sense… let’s keep it classy folks.
Rules & Regulations
To hell with the rules… there are no rules. Honored participants might receive some cool shit from members of Fair Use Video, along with their content being featured on this site and other places on the internet with absolutely no physical form of compensation whatsoever. Contest runs through December 31, 2017.
Whomever we determine to be the “winner” of this contest will receive a “grand prize package” of sorts. The prize will be decided and announced upon the conclusion of the contest, but will most likely be some sort of low quality instrument, signed and/or intentionally damaged or by FUV members. Other shit will likely be included.
Submissions & Stuff
Send MP3 files (256k or higher, please) and/or links to your dance off video mixes to firstname.lastname@example.org. Not all material will be placed on this site. Please do not send ANYTHING other than submissions for this contest, because we will delete that shit quicker than you can say that we said we would delete that shit… get it? Good. And good luck.
Also… by submitting material for this contest, you willingly relinquish any and all rights to copyright, publishing, writing, arrangement, or any type of royalty collection claims known to man. In other words, once submitted, we own your shit. We can do whatever we want with your shit in the future. You will have absolutely no control over your shit from this point on. Furthermore, if you don’t like it, we don’t give a shit.
Remix by Solitaire for Working Class Music
This is the remix that inspired this whole remix contest thingy. Michael “Malik” Mayo, (a.k.a. Solitaire the Great, or just Solitaire), a long time friend an co-colaborator with Fair Use Video, worked his magic on these tracks. We believed the results were good enough to include the track on the actual album… so it’s on there. Please look to this track for inspiration and as an example of how you can add your own materials, delete tracks, etc…
