Vote for best I:scintilla 'Skin tight' remix and support a charity
A while back we reported about a remix contest for I:scintilla's "Skin tight". After carefully listening to 64 submissions from musicians that covered 15 countries, 7 finalists have been chosen which you can listen to on this Bandcamp page.
Rather than resort to a standard web-based voting mechanism, the band decided that you can vote for your favorite remixes with small charitable donations. The track that generates the most money will be the winner. ALL income from this contest will be donated to Amnesty International. Quite an interesting approach you might say.
The band will be completely transparent with income statistics and provide period screenshot updates regarding the tracks' incomes. The voting ends on February 26, so purchase your favorite tracks now.

Special DISKONNEKTED single 'Justify (Diskonnekted VIP mix)' for download on Bandcamp
Next on Bandcamp we also have a new single from DISKONNEKTED, "Justify (Diskonnekted VIP mix)". The track is yours for only 0,99 EURO.
Belgium's DISKONNEKTED has always been about breaking boundaries. For the next little journey, Jan Dewulf was especially influenced by a modern drum and bass sound: the stuff from Hospital Records for example, or the explosive mix between drum & bass and electrorock by PENDULUM. Starting point was the track "Justify" from the current splendid and highly praised album "Hotel Existence" that became an explosive club track after its special treatment. Starting with raving drum & bass breaks, the track evolves into a heavy guitar driven crossover beastů Enjoy this exclusive new VIP mix!
