Singularity – PeaceTreaty’s ‘In Time’ Beatport Play Contest Winner!

December 11, 2012 Tim Gauthier Music Tags: , , , , ,

When it came to remixing PeaceTreaty’s “In Time,” the LA-based producer known as Singularity proved to be the best at taking up the task, nabbing the DCAM: Synth Squad and Tremor soft-synths from FXpansion, $500 worth of gear from Ambig, a pair of Sabre sunglasses, a year-long subscription to Future Music and Computer Music magazines, and the Sounds To Sample Elements Library. But, most importantly of all, Singularity’s version of the song is now set to appear on a forthcoming remix collection from Dim Mak.

“I’m just really glad everyone enjoyed the track as much as I enjoyed making it,” says the SoCal producer. Given the response his rework got, it’s safe to say he had a pretty damn good time making this one.

Congrats again to Singularity, and all other the 350+ plus contestants!!! We’re blown away with all the support. You’ve all done an amazing job with this single.

Out Now: Robert Raimon Roy – Le Tigre Blanc

December 11, 2012 Tim Gauthier Music Tags: , ,

[lightbox url="http://itun.es/i6Dz3kV" width="1000" height="600" iframe="true"][/lightbox] [lightbox url="http://btprt.dj/YWJX8u" width="1000" height="600" iframe="true"][/lightbox] [lightbox url="http://spoti.fi/TROtRq" width="1000" height="600" iframe="true"][/lightbox] [lightbox url="http://www.youtube.com/embed/videoseries?list=PLP3NmVJWzd3OxQiHkVsegVaO1guwb1Qt3&hl=en_US" width="960" height="540" iframe="true"][/lightbox]

Le Tigre Blanc is an adventurous pop album that deforms and combines several epochs of rap, R&B, jazz, and rock music, from James Brown-esque grunts and screams, to 90’s New Jack Swing, to modern trap, and even gospel hymns; it is a meta-work of the Internet era, a coming-of-age tale for the posthuman.
