What better way to get the word out about the documentary, Copyright Criminals: This is a Sampling Sport, than to sponsor a remix contest?
This new contest challenges artists to mix tracks under 4 minutes and use provided voice samples from Ben Franzen and Kembrew McLeod's forthcoming film, "Copyright Criminals." Samples from the film include voiceovers from George Clinton, De La Soul, DJ Qbert, members of Public Enemy, Matmos, Coldcut, members of Negativland, and others. The best overall winner will be included prominently in the film and the top 11 other entries are to be included on a companion CD.
You've got till March 14 to get your entries in.
