We were overwhelmed by the response to the Gypsy Riddim remix contest, and now can finally announce the lucky winners! We (Famous Eno, Dre Skull, Rubi Dan and the Mixpak team) deliberated over every single one. There were many strong entries and in a large variety of styles, from afrobeats to heavy metal. The entries were judged on their both their craft and their vibe – the winners we picked were, in the end, songs that either “took the track somewhere else or worked on the dancefloor” as Eno says.
So, we are proud to announce:
1st Place: Dutty Inspectors with their 140bpm, bass heavy version
2nd Place: Phrixus with his chopped-up, house hitter
3rd Place: DJ George Costanza‘s very inventive heavy metal version
