RL Grime‘s impending sophomore album, Nova, has had fans anxiously on the edge of their seats, awaiting the follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2014 debut LP, Void. An exceedingly promising glimpse from Nova finds Henry Steinway connecting with heavyweight pop vocalist Daya on “I Wanna Know,” landing unequivocally as RL’s most commercially successful offering to date. Marking the WeDidIt producer’s first top 10 US dance record with over 14 million plays to date, as well as grabbing the top slot on iTunes Electronic charts in the US, Australia, and New Zealand, “I Wanna Know” has been one of the most in-demand tunes of the year — and now the remixing effort is officially in fans’ hands.
Dancing Astronaut, in conjunction with WAVO.me and RL Grime, are lighting the beacon for producers to try their hands at remixing “I Wanna Know,” offering the chance to lay down an inventive new take on RL’s sweeping summer hit. The remix competition will run through July 9, and the winning remix will receive a worldwide premiere on Dancing Astronaut. The grand prize also includes a lifetime WAVO Pro membership and an exclusive Nova merch capsule.
2017 marks the fifth anniversary of Austria’s Electric Love Festival. Taking place July 6-8 at the Salzburg Ring, a scenic oasis in the Salzkammergut lake district, ELF includes high profile headliners such as DJ Snake, Martin Garrix, marshmello, and Hardwell.
In preparation for the event, Dancing Astronaut has teamed up with Wavo to present a remix competition for the festival’s 2017 anthem, Khazun & Felice’s “”Believe in Me.” Electric Love Festival will select four remixers to perform on different stages of the lineup as support for the aforementioned headliners, the original song’s producers, and more. Winners will be chosen by the ELF judges based on the following criteria: remix genre, number of votes, originality and track quality, as opposed to ranking alone.
Dancing Astronaut is teaming up with WAVO and Gigi Rowe for a new remix competition for Rowe’s breakout single, “Run the Night.” The Miami-based songstress originally delivered the single back in August, before announcing that it would be included in Ubisoft’s upcoming dance game, Just Dance 2017.
Rowe said of the track: “I love that ‘Run the Night’ is such an upbeat, fun track that will be featured in Just Dance 2017. I had the best time recording this song in Miami with my producer, ill Factor, and feel like it totally embodies the “glamorous runaway” spirit, which is how I like to describe myself.”
Now, WAVO is providing producers everywhere their chance to put their mark on the dance single and receive a commercial release in addition to a cash prize and 1 Year Pro LANDR mastering membership.
Rowe said of the new partnership: “I’m thrilled to partner with WAVO and Dancing Astronaut for the ‘Run the Night’ remix competition. Always exciting to hear a fresh take on my song, and I can’t wait to personally listen to the submissions and hear what the talent pool comes up with.”
