Paris DJs are proud to announce a worldwide exclusive remix competition using the vocals of Studio One legend, one of Jamaica's most influential early dancehall DJs, The Lone Ranger. He was twice voted number 1 deejay on the island, in 1979 and 1980. He helped pioneer a newly rhythmic, on-the-beat rhyming style that led DJ toasting into the modern age, and punctuated his lyrics with bizarre exclamations and sound effects ('bim' and 'ribbit' were his favorites) that made him perhaps the most imaginative stylist of his time.
Paris DJs are giving you the opportunity to remix the Lone Ranger/Grant Phabao tribute to Steve Jobs track 'The Iphone Connection', the first single from the brand new Paris DJs label, available on iTunes.
The vocal acapella from the song is available to download below (the original version of the tune being available here). We want you to build your own unique track behind The Lone Ranger's amazing vocals and let his producer Grant Phabao decide who has created the best remix. Add you own beats, instrumentals, flip an old version/riddim or re-interpret the vocal below - whatever is clever, we want to hear how good you can make The Lone Ranger sound. (We're looking for original, innovative remixes here and not a re-edit so get your thinking caps on…)
WHAT'S THE PRIZE ?
01. We'll press up an official, numbered limited edition run of your remix on 7 inch vinyl to be available in selected shops worldwide. No better way to get your name out there than to remix one of Reggae's true legends.
02. Grant Phabao will do an audio mastering of you remix. Your name will get out there and your music will sound as good as it can be.
03. You'll get a Lone Ranger signed copy of your own 7" for your collection.
