Steven Wilson needs a video
Earlier this year to coincide with the release of Insurgentes by Steven Wilson, Kscope launched a remix competition which gave fans the chance to remix a track from the album. Here's what they have to say:
We received over 200 entries to the competition, each of which were listened to personally by Steven. He was so impressed by the response and the quality and diversity of the entries that we have decided to launch a new competition to coincide with the release of the new remix album, NSRGNTS RMXS. For this competition rather than asking for people to remix a track, we are instead inviting people to create a video for one of the tracks.
We would like people to make a video for the David A. Sitek mix of Harmony Korine which is available from the Kscope store - http://www.burningshed.com/store/kscope/product/272/1686/
The initial deadline for entries has passed but we have had several people contact us asking for more time to complete their video so we extending this deadline to October 12th (UK releases date of NSRGNTS RMXS).
We’ve created a YouTube channel for all entries - http://www.youtube.com/NSRGNTSRMXS#play/uploads - so once you’ve completed your video please upload it to your own YouTube page and send us a link to let us know and we’ll add it to the page as a favourite. The winner will become the proud recipient of Steven Wilson’s Kscope catalogue as well as an art print signed by the man himself.
Insurgentes was released earlier this year on Kscope. The album immediately received a rapturous reception from not just fans and critics but also from fellow artists. Several of these artists have remixed tracks from the album and NSRGNTS RMXS is a collection of some of these remixes.
The CD edition features a mix of Harmony Korine by David A. Sitek, currently enjoying massive critical acclaim for the new TV On The Radio album. Underground hip-hop pioneers Dälek have created a dark, brooding mix of Get All You Deserve (think Massive Attack meets UNKLE). Engineers, who recently returned with their new album Three Fact Fader, have brought their widescreen sound to Abandoner while Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson, XTC) has created a sprawling mix of Salvaging and drone act Fear Falls Burning have also reworked Get All You Deserve. It also features the Danse Macabre remix, which was the winner of the original remix competition.
The 12” vinyl edition of NSRGNTS RMXS will be limited to 1000 copies and will only be available from the Kscope store. It also features the David A. Sitek mix along with two mixes of Only Child by Pat Mastelotto. A digital edition will also be available which collects all eight tracks available on the CD and 12”.
