Peter Gabriel Releases Winning Indaba Music Remix
Fans were invited to remix Gabriel's 1980 hit "Games Without Frontiers" in whatever form they imagined.
After reviewing submissions from around the world, Gabriel named up-and-coming artist Japan Aircraft (the stage moniker of Steven McKerlie) of Brisbane, Australia as the winner of the competition in August of 2010. Interestingly, McKerlie plies his trade as a bridge design engineer by day and musician as a hobby.
For his prize, McKerlie was flown out to London, England in late October for a professional mastering session at Gabriel's Real World Studios. Now, his track has been released alongside the original song on an official iTunes release.
In addition to his trip to Real World Studios for the mastering session, McKerlie also received a signed collector's edition Scratch My Back boxset, and a free year long Platinum Membership to Indaba Music.
