It’s finally time to crown the Champion of the 4BB/Damn! Remix Competition. Luckily, the esteemed 4BB/Damn! Jury is back with an unanimous decision – the best Damn! remixer around is…[drumroll]…GORQUE and his 8-bit version of Damn!’s “Headstone”! Congratulations are in order, especially since his claim to victory not only includes the prestigious Grand Prize, but he really locked in his triumph by grabbing the 2nd place as well – with his the soulful re-edit of “Get Your Grown Man On”! His closest threat being Mofo Trio, who came in 3rd, trailing behind by just a handful of votes!

OK, before we listen to winning entries in the 4BB/Damn! Remix Competition 2009, we (4BB, Damn! and the rest of the arrangers) would like to thank all the contestants one last time! You all did real good – we had a blast…big thanks to all of you for your time, effort and creativity! We would also like to thank all the members of the jury for a job well done – and last but not least, the generous sponsors for helping out making everything even more interesting for the contestants! Thank you – we couldn’t have done this without any of you! .

………………………………………………………………

WINNER REMIX: Big up’s to Gorque for his smart rework of Damn!’s “Headstone” – or like one of the jury members described it: “Beauty and steel combined”! Let’s have a final listen to the expertly engineered lo-fi’esque rendition with the crackling static, Nintendo bass and that stuttering beat right now:

RUNNER-UP REMIX: The other Gorque remix in the competition – and the only other entry that really fought for the top spot to the bitter end (just 2 votes behind)! If you want to hear more of Gorque’s music, go check out his Myspace…but right now, let’s listen to his tweaked 70’s soul-tinged remix of Damn!’s “Get Your Grown Man On”:

2ND RUNNER-UP REMIX: The third place entry had one of the juror’s saying: “The dirty-ass Detroit rock take on this cut is really raw and daring – but they made it fly, that’s what’s up!” Here’s Mofo Trio and their remix of “Get Your Grown Man On”:

………………………………………………………………

Nice work, Gorque! All in all, it seems like the best Damn! remixer really did win the competition after all! Claiming both 1st and 2nd place in the competition kinda proves that point! To the finalists – Mofo Trio, C.H., LP2 and Saft Stockholm – and the rest of the contestants – you all did real good, you know! You’ll get him next time!
