Michael Jackson Remix Challenge!

Post by 8O » Sun Jun 28, 2009 6:22 pm

After Rave's successful Last Christmas Remix Challenge, how about another remix challenge to commemorate the departed King of Pop?

We'll need to settle on a song to remix. My vote would be for Billie Jean, but completely open to suggestions... Actually, I Want You Back could be awesome...

I'm sure there'll be midi files available of all the major hits...

The rules will be the same as last time:

Rules:
There are none.


Whaddya reckon?

**** Update ****

Some sources to get you going:
Billy Jean Midi Type 0 - http://www.findmidis.com/download.go/27 ... el_Jackson

Don't usually do remixes, but that one would be fun.

Yeah, consensus reached.

There's an awesome midi version to be found here:

http://www.findmidis.com/download.go/27 ... el_Jackson
...albeit with all the midi tracks all on one track (midi type 0, I guess) - play this one straight with your computer's midi instruments and it already sounds fantastic.

Ok, so, and a midi type 1 version here: http://www.musicamidigratis.com/midis/464/infomidi.html - click on "Descargar" to download...

Or just rework your own copy from your platinum Michael Jackson CD boxed set.

No rules.

Have fun!

Looking forward to the first remixes...! :D :D

If there are truly no rules, then I'd be doing a remix of Rock With You or PYT.

i'm in.. i say any song goes.. he has so many great songs so we shouldn't be limited to BJ.. it's all in fun anyways.. now if someone persuaded Ableton to support this contest and give away some prizes, then there should be set rules.. otherwise, let's just play tribute to MJ.. or post youtube videos of us imitating his dances.. been working on the moon walk..

any one have any MJ accapellas?

Well, I did say no rules, so I have to stick to my word here... :lol:

Go for it! Give us a link when your done and Rave kindly offered to host them somewhere.

I'm halfway through my Billie Jean mix, but it's sounding a bit Rammstein-ish at the moment... :? :D

I have now been singing Billie Jean for around 6 hours... I wish I had never thought it would be a good idea to do an MJ remix! In the words of wacko himself "Just remember to always think twice.. He he.. Oooowwww" 8O
