Nit Grit - Babylon Remix Contest

Recently one of my favourite young artists Nit Grit made one of his tracks available for remixing. Not being one to turn down the opportunity at a remix I jumped on it, and must admit that I had a whole heap of fun doing it...  
Here is the end result..

NiT GriT - Babylon (Audiophile Remix) by ReGriT

Here follows the competition information for anyone who is interested. This copy comes from subsynthesis.com your place for bass....

Due to his dramatic rise in online popularity, California producer Nit Grit (Danny Beall) is constantly bombarded with requests by people asking him to listen to their music, comment on their songs, and other various attempts to make use of Nit Grit’s sharp increase in fame. Despite his resistance to participate in this type of online endorsement, Nit Grit is giving artists of all varieties a chance to create something new and original from one of his tracks; along with the guaranteed audience of the Massive Nit Grit fan-base. Free of charge, Nit Grit is giving away the stems to his hit track “Babylon“, with the request that anyone wishing to remix the track should have a finished product submitted by February 28th to Re.GriT@yahoo.com. Nit Grit has one of the largest online fan followings of any artist in bass community. Babylon is an extraordinary track to begin with, and the fact that Danny is giving away the stems for free is a magnificent gift to any producer in and of itself. Take my advice and jump on this one-time opportunity to participate in one of the most opportunity-laden remix competitions of the year!

Audiophile 021 and Biscope Live @ Die Mystic Boer Stellenbosch

If you are lucky enough to be in Stellenbosch on the 18th of February come catch myself and the Bionic Biscope brothers for an evening of BASS, BREAKS and MAYHEM live at Mystic Boer ...

For more information visit the EVENT PAGE

For those of you out there that don't know Biscope, it is the brain child of brothers, Richard the Third and Twelv... They make basslines like animal growls, slow-breathing atmospheres, cut-up rap samples and shatter-proof beats with an assortment of samplers, synths and a laptop thrown in for good measure. They also happen to be one of my favorite South African production crews... THIS IS GOING TO BE INSANE

Audiophile 021 on Red Bull Music Academy Radio

Audiophile 021 aka Steve Elsworth likes to take his sound engineering qualifications to the dark side, using them to mangle subsonic basslines and heavy hitting drums into shapes that speak of obsessive passion for music. From crunchy glitch to heavy hitting dubstep to ethereal deep techno pads, he carries it all in an ever growing toolbox that makes him a force to be reckoned with in the South African scene. This set was recorded live at Rocking The Daisies 2010.
