That's right loyal readers, in order to boost the gimmicky appeal of this 'ere blog, we're going to hold our very first competition! Skipping right to the business end of things, here is what you have to do: you may choose between Rikki and Otto's Journey - two sensational Mylo tracks - and typesing the tune for me. Which is literally what it sounds like. Points will be awarded for those who can accurately do it (ie. if it actually conveys the song, in which case you are brilliant) and, falling short of that, for anyone who can entertain me. Here are the tracks:

Mylo - Rikki

Mylo - Otto's Journey

As far as prizes go, you also have a choice! Since everybody loves The Presets, and the collectors edition of Apocalypso just popped its head out, the winner can pick between (a) the collectors edition of said album, featuring bonus remixes disc, scarf and poster; (b) their stunning debut Beams in 2x12" vinyl glory; or (c) the always tempting and excitingly risky Mystery Prize!

The Presets - Anywhere (Still Going Remix)

The Presets - Kitty In The Middle

Email your entries to - the compy closes on the 20th of October, so quick sticks. I'll post anywhere in the world so don't be shy. Give me some creativity! I'll contact the winner to arrange some kind of award ceremony or something.

In other news, Mr. Oizo's latest offering, Lambs Anger (due out November 17th) is nothing short of spectacular and I can't keep myself from posting a taste. I'm going to go all the way and say it's my number 1 electronic album for 2008, hands down. Serrrriously, this is one album you NEED to buy. Go get a tent and start camping outside your local record store so you can be the first one to get your hands on one of those bad boys. These are a couple of the more upbeat tracks on the album, and certainly two of my favourites. GET EXCITED!

Mr. Oizo - Two Takes It (feat. Carmen Castro)

Mr. Oizo - Gay Dentists

I guess since I've just posted Otto's Journey for the 15th time, or something, I'd better put up the final version in 320 of Otto's Golden Journey. A lot of people have been asking me for it, so I guess i don't feel too bad.

The Whitest Boy Alive vs Mylo vs Cut Copy - Otto's Golden Journey (Andy Webb's Dreamy Blend)

Get those entries in! Danana nanana-na nahhhhh

andy webb said...

singing something using text

what you couldn't tell that was a 16 bar loop from otto's journey?

(i'm going anonymous on this one - unless i actually win - in which case just write something in the comments - but i think my efforts will reflect in the results. ha!)

This is a great idea.

I'll do some warm ups, and some practices, once I have it almost perfect, I'll do some mastering, and email the finished result.

but the links! they do not work!

Anonymous said...

yeah the linkies aren't working :(

andy webb said...

they seem to be working fine for me..

are you using right click/save as to get the files?

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm can somebody now please confirm or deny their workingness?

Neoteric said...

they work you just need to be on the actual site. if using a blog reader, such as i am with google reader you have to click through to download the files

andy webb said...

ok i think that should be fixed now. though you'll still need to actually save the files rather than just clicking the link.

fanks geyez. as you may have noticed i (finally) decided to use the proper domain i've had for about a year, so there were bound to be a couple of issues here and there.
