10 years after the first ever release of ‘Out of the Blue’ by System F, the trance classic is available again with fresh new releases from the likes of Tiesto, Laidback Luke, Giuseppe Ottaviani and many more. Aside from this re-release of the single , this milestone moment is also celebrated and supported by a unique remix contest, where you not only get to determine what remixes appear on the final product – you, local dance music producers,Â get to contribute your remix to the album!
The original album has been digitally remastered and includes a special bonus CD, which contains the best and now hard to find remixes of System F cuts made by Armin van Buuren , Barthezz , Rank 1 and Jan Driver. Fans will also be happy to find the highly sought after ‘Violin Edit’ of ‘Out of the Blue’ plus other material that was never digitally released before.
In conjunction with the landmark release, Ferry has created an exciting competition in which fans, as well as amateur and experienced producers have a chance to remix one or all of the System F tracks ever released. The competition gives new talents the chance to remix one of my productions. I get a lot of enquiries of producers that want to remix my tracks so this is their chance,”Â says Ferry.
The outtakes and parts of all the original album cuts will be available through www.fcsystemf.com; and the winning remixes will end up on the upcoming FC System F ‘Champions’ album. All entries will also be credited on the sleevenotes.
The competition, which takes place in stages,Â began on 2 Feb, with entries and votes for remixes of singles ‘Out Of The Blue’, ;Cry’, ‘Dance Valley Theme 2001’ and ‘Exhale’Â and ‘Lost In Motion’Â now in. You can still vote for ‘Elevate’ remixes until 30 March.
For those looking to contribute remixes ‘Needlejuice’, ‘Soul On Soul’, ‘Indian Summer’, ‘Solstice’ andÂ ‘Insolation’ are yet to be contested. Remixes for the final single ‘Insolation’ closes on 25 April with voting closing onÂ 4 May. We suggest you check the site for details as remixing and voting times are limited.
