Custom DJ Remixes


Job Description

We are looking for freelance artists / musicians / producers / dj's who can remix songs from a specific niche for us, in a sampling / ghetto-funk style

As an ongoing project, we are taking some Aussie classics and give them a new, funky twist.

We love the way the best beats in Hip Hop have borrowed from old classics - take this as an example:
Danny brown has borrowed from A Tribe Called Quest's "Can I Kick It?", which originally borrowed from Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side"

Or this one by Jay-Z. Kanye West actually did the beat here, and he borrowed great samples from the Jackson 5's "I Want You Back"

The core of the style we r looking for tends to borrow heavily from the likes of RJD2, Cut Chemist & Nu-Mark. However all the samples above are from a while ago now... so we may want to add a bit more electro (like Kanyes more recent stuff - think "Power" / "All of the Lights" / "Runaway", or any of Pitbull's dancefloor friendly stuff), or perhaps make them a bit more downtempo in the style of Flume or Chet Faker. These remixes need to be unique, fresh but still have recognisable samples/references to the original tune

We will look to eventually have 10 remixes made in the next 3 weeks, using samples from any of the tunes below:
US Forces - Midnight Oil
Khe Sanh - Cold Chisel
Ego Is Not A Dirty Word - Skyhooks
Like Wow (Wipeout) - Hoodoo Gurus
1000 Miles Away - Hoodoo Gurus
Holy Grail - Hunters & Collectors
Hello Hello - Cat Empire
Truly, Madly, Deeply - Savage Garden
Nosebleed Section - Hilltop Hoods
Woman - Wolfmother
Minds Eye - Wolfmother
Better Be Home Soon - Crowded House
Something So Strong - Crowded House
Look What You've Done - Jet
Rip It Up - Jet
Beautiful Girl - INXS
By My Side - INXS
I Touch Myself - Divinyls
Miss You Love - Silverchair
Freak - Silverchair
Dumb Things - Paul Kelly
Four Seasons in One Day - Paul Kelly
Leaps & Bounds - Paul Kelly

We do not need to know what you like listening to, or where you are from - all we need to see is whether you can do the work, and whether you can work with us on this project. So to work that out, we would like to see a sample (at least one minute, preferably a little more) of the style of remix you would produce for us using any of the tracks above as the original samples

If we like what you produce, and think we want to hear more, we will then be in touch

Any applications which do NOT have a sample remix using a tune listed above will be REJECTED IMMEDIATELY
