David Remix Röyksopp's 'Tricky Tricky'

‘Tricky tricky’ remix compEver wanted to take a shot at remixing a track from the amazing Röyksopp (who are, by the way, long-time SoundCloud users)? Well now is your chance.

Yesterday, Röyksopp announced a remix competition for their track Tricky Tricky, saying:

We feel that track “Tricky Tricky” has so much potential, it deserves a life outside the album. Not only is this a chance at beating us at our own game, you also get to mess around with Karin Deijer-Andersson’s (The Knife, Fever Ray) extraordinary vocals! Now, how about that?!?

Yeah! So, what next?

  • Check the original track below and download the raw files
  • Remix Tricky Tricky
  • Submit your remix to your country’s group (Note: the competition is limited to participants living in the following countries: UK, US, Norway, Australia, Germany and France)
  • Spread the word and invite your friends to listen

David Updated: Announcing Music Hack Day in Berlin

Mark your calendars and join us for a full weekend of hacking during the first German Music Hack Day on September 18/19/20 at Radialsystem V in Berlin.

In July, a group of more than 200 music techheads gathered at the Guardian offices in London for an overly successful first Music Hack Day. After a long night of coding, about 30 new websites, projects, instruments and software saw the light of the day – we’ve blogged about a bunch of them before: Citysounds.fm, the iPhone Music Visualiser and SoundDrop. Click here for more hacks from that night.

So now it’s time to get everyone together in one of the world’s most important cities for music: Berlin. We want hackers to code and music companies to showcase their API’s and products people can hack on and hopefully at the end of the weekend we’ll see a whole lot of new music awesomeness.

Confirmed partners so far: Ableton, De:Bug, Tape.tv and of course us.

The event is totally free and non-commercial and we would like to keep it this way. We’re still looking for companies interested to sponsor breakfast, lunch or dinner as well as soft drinks and some beer. If you’d like to contribute, please contact us. Any help is greatly appreciated and will ensure that every participant can attend at no charge. Here’s what’s open and what’s already covered:

Registration is free and is limited to 150 participants tops so please register early and let us know how you’d like to contribute. The venue will be open 24 hours and you can stay overnight and hack thru the night.

We’d like to thank the entire teams of all2gethernow, newthinking communications and Music Hack Day for all their help making this possible.

David New feature: Share user's latest tracks

We’ve just released a little new feature that we think is pretty nice.

When you look at a user’s profile you’ll see that we added a new ‘Share’ button. This will allow you to share this user’s latest tracks in chronological order (newest tracks on top) in our flash player widget.

Forss - Sets - SoundCloud

And here is how this will look like when embedded to another site (in this case, that’s my blog but you can also embed it to the sidebar of your blog or any of your profiles or sites that allow you to add html codes).

One more little thing: you can now easily share a user’s URL (http://soundcloud.com/forss) to Facebook. Just add it to the “What’s on your mind?” field and it will post the player with the latest tracks to your Facebook stream. Have a look:
