Wow! What a great way to end the year. To each and every one of you who participated, THANK YOU. We spent two weeks carefully listening to every submission. It was incredibly tough to choose a single winner from all of the great remixes we received. A few rose to the top with great combinations of banging beats, creative arrangements, skilled mixes, and pro vocal treatment. Listen to the winners below!

Grand Prize Winner
Ille Gal's brilliant mix captured our imagination and ears right away with an incredibly gorgeous intro. It was the blogger favorite, singled out by both The Music Ninja and Indie Shuffle. And we kept returning to it because the creative use of the vocal would get stuck in our heads. It's lush, has an infectious chill groove, and offers a totally different take from the original.
We loved MZKRM's remix for it's heart and meticulous attention to detail. It takes you on journey, covers a lot of ground, and it's seamless. We see big things in store for MZKRM, and are honored that he put his unique stamp on Analog or Digital.
A very thoughtful, creative, and soulful interpretation. Banging.
Super energetic, meticulously detailed, and great hooks. Drum and bass meets pop, and it's great.
Head bouncing right away to that beat and synth bass combo. Simply put, it's a ton of fun to listen to this. Looking forward to more of these huge mixes from Plumart.
There were dozens of other excellent remixes, but the above were the ones that we collectively found to be the top submissions. The results could easily have gone another way with different judges. For us, vocal alignment was key and ruled out a few mixes that were otherwise solid contenders. Other factors that became important were originality and skill in the mixing department. We hope all of you continue to keep up the great work. We appreciate the passion and creativity everyone has shown. This competition was awesome, fun, and inspiring for us because of you.
Check out all of the great remixes on SoundCloud.
Wishing everyone safe and happy holidays. And an amazing 2013.
