Summer vacation for the jurors

30/06/2009The submission systems for both Remix.Kwed.Org and AmigaRemix.com have now been switched off until the 24th of August to give the jurors the possibility to rest from their duties and recharge the batteries for the rest of the year.

If you still want to showcase your tracks until the submission is reactivated, feel free to post your tracks on the forum, since there most certainly will be people around to enjoy them during the summer. It could of course also be a good thing even for the remixers to leave the keys for a bit and enjoy the summer. ;)
