Zedd presents Maliboux, 3SCAPE DRM, and Dominuscreed’s ‘Inside Out’ remix competition champions [Stream]
In 2009, well before Clarity and the Grammy nominations thereafter, Zedd could be found kickstarting his career by cinching victory in two respective Beatport remix contents, the “Armand Van Helden / StrictlyRhythm Remix Contest” and the “Fatboy Slim / Skint RemixContest.” Credits to Zedd’s early resume, then very much in the making, the titles helped propel the producer to his subsequent signing with OWSLA.
Years later, the value of a foundational opportunity such as a remix competition has hardly been lost on Zedd. After hosting a “Spectrum” remix competition on Beatport in 2012, the “Funny” hitmaker elected to run yet another, announcing on November 11 that aspiring acts could vie for a chance to be a part of “Inside Out’s” official remix pack by submitting a spin on the Griff-assisted original.
More than 600 submissions later, three champions, Maliboux, 3SCAPE DRM, and Dominuscreed, have been crowned, and their medal-securing spins issued via Interscope Records. The name-making takes present three flavorful perspectives on the October 23 original, all of which can be heard below.
