Rocket Wife Remix Contest Winners Announced!

Hello from lovely LA, and apologies for the rather much needed hiatus! There are many things that I need to share since I last posted, including our smashing time at MoogFest 2011 (which I will share details about in a bit) but I’m back in LA to write and reqroup – no better place to do so at the moment!

Now that we’re reacquainted, let’s announce the winners of our Bob Moog Foundation/ Tara Busch ‘Rocket Wife Remix’ contest!

For those that are unaware, we released a benefit EP for the Bob Moog Foundation in August, which will help to bring Moog instruments into classrooms all across the US to help teach children science through synthesis – known as ‘Dr Bob’s Sound School’. All the proceeds from the EP and the remix contest go to benefit this cause. Have a look!

Read more about the EP & contest here.

So, onward to announce our winners of the contest – We judged the songs on their originality and, quite simply whether or not it had that lovely spark that makes your ears tweak in that wonderful way! I must thank everyone for their entries, it was a tough decision – many lovely works of art were submitted!

Coming in at 3rd place is theshaggyfreak with Rocket Wife Remix by BS/OD!

Second place is the delicious and lovely Sundae Club remix, choc full of Moog-o-licious-ness!

Lastly, 1st prize is Trey Stein & Chris Spies’ ‘DJ Trey Stein vs. Tara Busch Opera Breaks Remix’! I chose this because the rearrangement of the vocal really struck me, as well as the chord structures – and of course the fuzzy sweetness of the bass! \

I look forward to making some noise with Trey and Chris, and many thanks again to everyone that participated! We will very soon be posting the winning tracks on the Bob Moog Foundation Bandcamp for all to purchase. Congrats to everyone!
