MuteMath is hosting a remix contest for their new album "Odd Soul". They provided the stems for their song and having the remixers submit their versions through SoundCloud. So yes, whatever copywritten parts of this song's productions have certainly been used with implied permission of its original owners.

I jumped in on it the very first day, since I'm a MuteMath fan and, coincidentally, a music composer.

Now, I've never actually done a REAL remix before, so all I had to go on - as far as remixes go - was what I've heard from The Legion of Doom. So with this remix, I tried to make this with the image in mind of a lightbulb burning.

using only their original Bass stem, the Lead/BG Vocal stem, and one or two clips of their Guitar stem. 95% of the guitars and synths, and all drum parts were created by George R. Powell


Remix with a personality

Great remix! Not that I've got any experience remixing, but from where I'm standing it sounds real nice. Comparing to the original it certainly has its own style, too.

Some things:

Love the filtered feel to the verse, but the chorus stands out somewhat roughly in comparison. The metal percussion, most prevalent in the first minute, sounds a bit too sharp, even taking into account (I hope) that my headphones and speakers are a bit trebly.

Personally I'd have liked a slightly harsher synth for the synth, but that's much up to taste as well.

Anyway, enjoyed the hell out of it!
