Remix Ready? Grammy-nominated Carmen Rizzo Wants to Hear What You’ve Got

by Shelly on January 3, 2012 · Comments

Carmen Rizzo knows a thing or two about success in the music business: In addition to his two Grammy nominations, this Los Angeles based producer, artist, electronic musician, and composer, has writing, engineering and programming credits on Seal’s classic “Seal II” album, has produced and writen for Paul Oakenfold’s “Bunka” album, and remixed BT, Tiesto, and singers Huun Huur Tu in collaboration with Tuvan Throat. Plus he’s has frequent fixture on album credits working with artist like Coldplay, Alanis Morissette, Dido, AR Rahman, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Khaled and Pete Townshend.

Now he wants to give you a chance to show off your remix skills. He’s hand selected one of his latest tracks — “Returning to Silence” — because it’s “remix friendly, with a cool, hypnotic bass line and nice beats.” Listen for yourself here.

Then give it a shot. Rizzo encourages each entrant to have fun, be true to their own style and come up with something totally different than the original. The winner gets worldwide exposure and a featured release on Electrofone Records.
