Feedback on the winning Mixes
Paul Kardos Remix
Darin Epsilon - "Paul was really thinking outside the box for his entry. There's so much going on in the background if you listen carefully. Not only that, he added new vocal samples and switched the key of the track. This is probably going to be one of the strongest tracks we release on the label this year."
Nick Muir - "harmonically ambiguous background action which sounds great in a club, futuristic production, nice contrast between precise rhythm and washed out synths."
Ejaz Ahamed Remix
Darin Epsilon - "So dark and groovy, loving this! Reminds me of early 16 Bit Lolitas. Throw this in the middle of your set and watch the dancefloor go wild."
Nick Muir - "atmospheric, nice use of restrained synth sounds, arrangement interesting and creative, pro sounding mix"
Magnetic Brothers Remix Remix
Darin Epsilon - "Super crisp production, never gets too repetitive and great use of FX. Extremely popular entry with very high number of votes in the community"
Nick Muir - "nice, crystal clear and well balanced, cool sound design, groovy"
Honorable Mentions (in alphabetical order): blaktone, Gibbon, Juliane Wolf, Michael Gin & Golan Zocher, Mindmusik & Stasik T, Mønje, PRIMAL
