Before Australian outfits New World Sound and Uberjak’d embark on their ‘Bounce Those Mates’ North American tour this weekend, they’ve launched a two-part remix contest of their tracks “Bounce That
” and “Smokin
Hosted by Wavo, the dual competition will give budding producers a shot at transforming the Melbourne Bounce music into an entirely new sound. Contestants are encouraged to strip down the tracks’ signature elastic basslines, uptempo electro synths and frenzied club-ready breakdowns, departing the 128 BPM realm and producing within genres as off-kilter as bass, house, garage, dubstep or even trap.
While “Bounce That” is a collaboration alongside Reece Low off of New World Sound’s forthcoming Bounce That EP (released April 21), “Smokin’” was released on April 14 as part of the Uberjak’d & Mates EP. “Smokin’” features budding producer Danny David who caught Uberjak’d’s attention after taking first place in his “I Like To Rave” remix contest last year. The 17-year-old beatmaker was propelled into the spotlight thanks to his creativity in revamping “I Like To Rave” into a hardstyle-inspired thrasher.
Wavo’s remix contest celebrates Dim Mak’s new synergistic touring platform in which New World Sound and Uberjak’d join forces for the Dim Mak-presented ‘New World Sound vs Uberjak’d – Bounce Those Mates Tour.’ Kicking off April 17 in Philadelphia and stopping through Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Orlando, Scottsdale and Seattle to name a few, the head-to-head US run will see individual sets from Uberjak’d and New World Sound as well as back-to-back performances at the ten domestic concerts.
