Anyone get turned on by the Best Remixes so far list? Feelin the remix bug? Well this is your chance to turn that bug into big bucks and a shot at the Las Vegas DJ scene which is pretty much Mecca from what I hear. In their never ending effort to turn their own sexy up to 11, Las Vegas is running a contest that would have you take Mona’s TBE jam “Listen To Your Love” and put your own roof-incinerating spin on it.
Judges inclue Lil’ Jon (Whaaat!?) and DJ Vice (who I just featured recently). Grand prize is studio equipment valued at $10,000 and the opportunity to return for a performance with a resident DJ at one of Las Vegas’ hottest clubs. Grab more details after the jump, check out the Facebook page, or just head to the official contest site! I wanna see a TBE remixer on that podium or turntable or whatever it ends up being!
