After a period of high-demand and eye for success, the Maxi Priest remix project for his new single ‘Tic Tok’ is now finished and complete.
The on-spec project was posted onto Music Gateway by AEI Media with a schedule to end on 11th February. With a completion time of 14 days and the opportunity to create a remix for a well-established artist, this project was under high demand, peaking at 106 pitches. Not only this, but the wide promotion for the record to be supplied by AEI Media as well as full support on radio & club play increased the appeal even further.
With a high quantity of pitches from so many high quality producers, this proved not to be an easy process. Once the users pitched onto the project to be in with a chance, the submissions were received, which meant only one thing: the A&R process must begin. The pleasurable task of listening to so many great examples of work was underway, creating a shortlist of the most suitable and desirable artists for this project.
This shortlist was of course over time made smaller and smaller, and eventually the decision was made. We are pleased to release that those successful were: Jay C, Kyshido, Other Echoes & Ben Knight, and Johnny Too Bad. All remixes from each user are complete and sounding very impressive, so keep an eye out for a release date! A huge thank you to everyone for their pitches, keep an eye for more great targeted collaborations!
