New this year, Camp Bisco hosted a four-week multi-artist remix contest, powered by Sony Creative Software’s music remixing site ACIDplanet.com and promoted in partnership with Remix Magazine. For the first time, aspiring DJ/producers from around the country had the opportunity to remix top notch artists including the Disco Biscuits, The Orb, Dr. Dog, Telepath and John Brown's Body. Five first place winners and one grand prize winner, The Maniac All-Stars, were selected for the first annual Camp Bisco remix contest. The Maniac All-Stars were selected as the grand prize winner for their "Rebirth" remix of the song "Subterfuge" by live electronica band and Camp BIsco performer, Telepath. The production duo is made up of brothers Antonio "DJ Satisfaction" and Dennis Gonzalez from Philadelphia, PA. The All-Stars are relatively new to Acidplanet joining only this month, but have won several remix contests including VH1's The Score to create the theme song for the 2007 Hip-Hop Honors Show. The Maniac All-Stars win a unique performance opportunity to spin a primetime Friday afternoon set at Camp Bisco between Planet Mu recording artist Starkey and Chicago DJ collective the Orchard Lounge.
"We were thrilled with the tracks submitted through Acidplanet online remixing community and will look to make this an annual promotion," - Johnathan Fordin, President of MCP Presents
