Earlier this year Basement Jaxx launched a remix competition in conjunction with premier dance music retailer, Beatport, based around their song “Unicorn”, a former Rinse FM Record of The Week, firm live favourite and a stand out-track from last summer’s “Junto” album.
Having listened to over 600 entries, they chose a winner, a remix by German producer “.Ocin” who said about the mix “The original’s vocals really touched me with their loveliness. So my intention was to underscore them with a tune that accentuated their nymph-like playfulness.”
However, given the standard of the entries and true the Jaxx’s inclusive vibe, they decided to make 10 of the best entries - including mixes from Italy, Spain, Russia, the UK and West Java, Indonesia - available as a stand alone release.
So, here is “Unicorn”, remixed by the people, for the people and available now on Beatport
