Using SoundCloud and watching Indaba, I’ve seen several remix contests fly by, but I’ve not been interested enough to bother entering. When SoundCloud announced the Newsboys Remix Contest though, I had to at least download the stems and listen.
Aside: how did I miss the announcement that Michael Tait is the new lead vocalist? I have to say I’m excited to hear the combination of Newsboys’ tuneage and Taits pipes.
So after listening, I decided to start working on a remix. Actually, I’ve got at least 2 ideas for treatments to give the song, so I may end up with a few remixes, when I’m done. I’ll capture the process here, so you can follow along at home :).
