The big news these days at Mixpak headquarters is the growing success of Sticky and Natalie Storm’s single “Look Pon Me.” In the UK, the Look Pon Me video has been added to the official playlist on MTV receiving over 35 plays in the last few weeks. That gives Natalie the distinction of being only the second Caribbean artist currently playlisted by MTV UK (maybe you’ve heard of the other…Rhianna?). Not bad exposure for a small label like Mixpak and, if anything, it speaks to how good this track is.
Anyhow, with all the success, we’ve had a number of folks ask about the “Look Pon Me” acapella and after talking with the lawyers and getting the green light, we’ve decided give you the chance to remix this UK-Funky-meets-Jamaica hit.
1. Download the acapella.
2. Remix the song.
3. Name your remix Natalie Storm – Look Pon Me (with your remixer name) and then upload your remix to the Mixpak Sound Cloud drop box, adding “Look Pon Me Remix Contest” in the tags.
4. The winners will be selected by Mixpak and streamed on our site.
1st Place: A custom Natalie Storm dubplate, where she works your production/DJ name into a track for use in your clubs sets, sound clashes and on your mixtapes. You will also win the complete Mixpak vinyl discography and a Mixpak Artist Series T-Shirt of your choice.
2nd + 3rd Place: A Mixpak vinyl of your choice and a Mixpak Artist Series T-Shirt of your choice.
Deadline To Submit Your Entry: May 2nd 2010
UPDATE: We’ve picked the winners. Thanks to everyone who participated!
