Three weeks ago, AltWire and Mike Shinoda challenged artists and producers across the globe to put their most unique and creative spin on tracks from his recently released Post Traumatic EP. We were blown away by the response to this contest, and the quality of the work put in to the 250+ submissions we received was simply undeniable. After several days of listening to every submitted remix, the judging committees decided on five wonderful finalists for us to send to Mike Shinoda for consideration, and it is now time for us to announce Mike’s pick for the grand prize winner:
Watching As I Fall (Mac Oddy Remix)
Congratulations Mac Oddy! Here are some words about the remix from the winner himself:
As the grand prize winner, Mac will be receiving an original piece of art signed by Mike Shinoda, with the remaining four runners up receiving a special autographed item from Mike as well.
Here are the finalists picked by all five committees (in no particular order):
