Erasure are one of the pioneers of the classic 80s, synth-pop sound, and have written some of the most memorable songs of the last three decades, combining the musical talents of Depeche Mode’s Vincent Clarke and the songwriting and vocal power of Andy Bell . Back with a new album; the pair have handed over their new single ‘I Lose Myself‘, to Beatportal for the remix treatment from you guys.
The parts to the single lend themselves to a vast array of remix possibilities, from filthy dubstep to stadium-grade electro house, with the winner being presented with more than $5,000 worth of gear and exclusive prizes. The huge range of prizes includes; a TRAKTOR Scratch Pro 2, TRAKTOR S2, Novation Launchpad, Ableton Live 8, Elektron Octatrack, iZotope Stutter Edit, Sounds To Sample Elements Library, $200 in Beatport credits and of course, a free production course from us at Point Blank up to the value of $1000. The MUTE label team will narrow down their selections to 10 finalists; those 10, along with Beatportal’s top 10 community-voted remixes, will then move on to the final round, with Erasure themselves selecting the grand-prize winner.
