Remix Emika’s “Flashbacks” for a Chance to Win Prizes from ROLI, Ableton, Native Instruments, Adam Pro & more!

This feature has ended. We'd like to thank everyone who participated -- you are what makes this community great. Join us in congratulating the winner(s)!

Emika is a multi-faceted producer, singer/songwriter, composer, DJ and sound designer who defies convention with her sonic amalgamation of classical beauty and otherworldly textures. After releasing the acclaimed DVA and Emika albums via Ninja Tune, Emika launched her own label Emika Records with the Melancholia Euphoria 12”, followed in quick succession by her lauded piano opus Klavirni, her third full studio album DREI and the DREI Remixes EP. She recently unleashed the gorgeous and mysterious Flashbacks EP (featuring soprano Michaela Strumova who is also the star of Emika’s upcoming orchestral symphony); it shows Emika is continuing to evolve a sound that is deeply human yet infused with daring electronic explorations.

 

Emika invites you to remix the title track “Flashbacks”, which incorporates her velvety voice soaring over pulsating, filtered synth delays, low register piano bass lines, and a stuttering beat co-produced by The Exaltics.

 

Contest prizing includes some of her favorite hardware and software that she used to create Flashbacks and more. Check out the offerings below from ROLI, Native Instruments, Adam Speakers, Ableton and Emika:

Grand Prize Winner - ROLI Seaboard RISE 25 + Adam Professional Audio F7 Monitor + Skype Session w/ Emika

Second Place - A copy of Ableton Live 9.5 + Skype Session w/ Emika

Third Place - Native Instruments Reaktor + “Flashbacks” EP on Vinyl

Fourth Place - Native Instruments Massive + “Flashbacks” EP on Vinyl

 

Emika encourages you to "think beyond genres, and think beyond DJs. This is about your signature sound. Put yourself into the music and connect with the stems in the deepest way possible".

WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT:

We would like to thank everyone in the Blend community who contributed a remix to Emika's "Flashbacks" as well as all of the sponsors involved and Emika herself! The Blend community created 200+ incredible versaitile remixes of "Flashbacks", and made Emika very happy.  

Emika expressed her thoughts with us after reflecting on the entire experience sharing "I had the best time listening to everyone's music and I checked out a lot of the artists profiles online to see what other music they make.  I love connecting with other creatives and I'm so happy that all kinds of interesting people from around the world entered our Flashbacks remix competition."

Don't feel discouraged or pesimist because you didn't won. There will be more and more remix contest and you'll be able to show the full potential. I entered this remix just because I like making music, not that I need prizes or popularity. Yes, indeed the chosen remixes were "unique" but I'm glad that @RCKNR remix won because it's amazing. See ya!

dx.xb Winner is winner it's done! No matter how ridiculous and abhorred we are with this poorly remixed version, sad but true. I care not for the prizes not jealous, good if those 4 persons find use for it in the future, but I think there are for each place 2,3 better songs. And the biggest issue here, as someone said, bollywood flute? SERIOUSLY!? I used original stems to make two different beats, I worked on it, still not finished song, but that's what I call remixing, different arrangement of the original. It was a pleasure doing this mixing as much as it was painful.
