DescriptionThe 8th release on Replug sees the winners of the Cid Inc. 'Filaments' remix contest get their official release along with the original mix as well. The contestants certainly had some great elements to work with as Cid Inc's original contains all of this Beatport nominated artist's best hallmarks; an excellent floor friendly bassline with plenty of groove and exceptional character, fresh sounds, a great hypnotic lead and enough punch to rock even the most discerning dancefloor. The contest was held in conjunction with findremix.com and it was a huge success with over 110 entries. It was a daunting task but these entries were reduced to 10 preselections which were then listened to and evaluated in Cid Inc's studio. After much deliberation the winning mixes were courtesy of Juan Deminicis, Pablo Acenso and Denis Kayron. Juan was the first prize winner and a long with getting his mix released on Replug he also received a copy of Ableton Live Intro, a one year Soundcloud Pro Account, 2 tracks mastered by Cid Inc. and an Interview on Findtheremix.com. Argentina's Juan Deminicis has really been coming to the forefront of the progressive scene of late with many of his productions getting heavy play from Hernan Cattaneo. For his 'Filaments' remix Juan has used the melodic lead over top of a meaty bottom end with great groove and emotional key changes for an amazing interpretation. His combination of grinding electronics and gorgeous washed out atmospherics coupled with the emotional lines is very unique and really sets this mix apart. Second place winner and also from Argentina Pablo Acenso gets his mix released on Replug as well as a one year Soundcloud Lite account and one track mastered by Cid Inc. Pablo's mix is a great alternative to Juan's as it offers much more of a techy, hypnotic and heads down vibe. This is a great peaktime interpretation from Pablo with it's awesome drive and energy that when coupled with his swirling atmo leads and crisp drums make for a sure fire dancefloor smash. For third place Russia's Denis Kayron also receives a one year Soundcloud Lite account and of course his mix released on Replug as well. Denis's mix offers a bit more of stripped down, driving approach. Exceptional sound design and very cool sections of scattered drums keep this mix very fresh and again certainly geared for primetime dancefloor action.
