The Glitch Mob Remix For Haiti
On July 21st The Glitch Mob released the first remix from their debut album Drink The Sea to promote the band's Remix Like You Stole It competion.
To kick things off, Fistful of Silence, remixed by San Francisco-based multi-genre music producer and Ninja Tune artist ESKMO, has been posted for free download via the band's website at http://theglitchmob.com/music. With tremendous support from fans, it reached #3 on popular charts on The Hype Machine and is currently the #2 most tweeted about track on the site.
The upcoming Remix collection (which will feature remixes from some of today's best DJ's and remixers) will be sold through Download To Donate v.2 Haiti website, with proceeds benefiting Music For Relief's Haiti Earthquake Recovery, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to providing aid to victims of natural disasters and disaster prevention.
Inspired by the overwhelming response on their first run of dates, The Glitch Mob have organized the Remix Like You Stole It competition to run in conjunction with their End of Summer Tour to help call attention and raise awareness among their fans. The Glitch Mob are offering the audio stems of their track, "Drive It Like You Stole It," for entrants to remix and/or add vocal overdubs. Supported by Abelton and Soundcloud, the contest opened on July 22nd with final submissions due by midnight, August 22, 2010. Winners will be determined by both popular vote and by a private panel of judges and will have their remix featured in the band's upcoming DRINK THE SEA Remix Album scheduled for release during The Glitch Mob's 2010 End of Summer US tour. Official remixers and winners will be announced shortly.
