Posted by:derektrainwreck.
Time:3:49 pm.
Has anyone heard any of Lady Sovereigns new music?!? She has a new album called "Jigsaw" and it comes out on April 7th in the US. It's so good! I love it even more than her last album. It features "I Got You Dancing" and "So Human" which samples The Cure!!

If you pre-order the album now on iTunes, you get bonus remix tracks of "I Got You Dancing"!

Subject:Please help me with my Roots Remix contest!
Posted by:thesalivasurfer.
Time:12:39 pm.



Clicking the above image will direct you to a page containing my entry into The Roots "Criminal" Remix Contest.

The determination of winners for this first round is really lame (didn't realize this until after the fact); basically a self-promo battle for votes. I guess the judges didn't want to have to listen to 310 remixes to determine what was actually good. But I worked hard on my track and after listening to a ton of really mediocre/bad entries, am totally confident that mine is good enough to be in the top 25, so I'm giving this ridiculous spam battle a shot.

So please hook me up with a vote! Just click the link above and press "vote for me" on the page you are redirected to. Then, if I make it to the top 25 I can actually compete in a legitimate remix competition.

The top 25 finalists will advance to Round 2. For Round 2, The Roots will make another track from Rising Down available to be remixed by the 25 finalists, and thankfully there will be 3 judges making the final decision.

I need to be in the top 25 by the end of the day on Friday to make it to the next round. Many thanks in advance to all the generous people willing to lend me a hand!

Peace!

Chris...

P.S. If any of you feel like helping me out and passing this along, posting it on your blog, whatever outlets you might have, I'd reeeeeally appreciate it. I'm trying to re-harness any self-promo mojo I might have possessed in the past but I could definitely use the help!
