Music platform Legitmix enables remixers to sell their work without traditional sample-clearances, while still ensuring sampled artists get credited and paid. To introduce their new self-serve submission interface Legitmix is sponsoring a remix contest started by Kon, "re-edit / rework king of 2012" according to Gilles Peterson. Kon is putting together a 6 track EP Kon & The Gang and you can be part of it.
“Bring old classics to a whole new audience,” Kon explains. “Or remix or rework giants to get known. But make sure you sample music you love. This is not about hiding samples. With Legitmix, both remixer and sampled artist get credited and paid, and everything gets worked out with technology, not lawyers and paperwork. That’s what edits and remixes should be about: a partnership between producers and the artists they sample.”
Remix Platform Legitmix is built upon the symbiotic relationship between remixers and the artists they sample.
