EmeraldCityEDM first announced the Unsung Heroes Remix Contest in 2015; today we are pleased to announce that Grid Division from Oakland CA is the winner! There were many entries, and Impossible Records is very excited to share a compilation EP (see below) of the ten best entries with the world. About the EP, Ill Gates stated to EmeraldCityEDM:
I’m writing to let you know KJ Sawka (Pendulum/Destroid) and I just dropped a big release. We held a remix contest and over 500 tracks were submitted. Shit was crazy. We waded through all of the entries, narrowed it down to the 10 very best submissions, and put out this heroic remix EP. The winning producers are mostly unknown and extremely talented. The high quality of their work is immediately apparent from the first listen. For many of those that entered our contest, this remix EP is their first release. -Ill Gates
