Remix Contest Duran Duran "Nite-Runner"

Simon_jt_timba

Duran Duran has launched a remix contest in which people are challenged to submit their own version of their forthcoming new single  "Nite-Runner." It is the first track that Duran Duran, Timabland and Justin Timberlake wrote and produced together in a New York City studio earlier this year.

The song presents a hip new sound for Duran Duran after Timbaland shook things up for these  '80s pop icons. It was like "Tom Ford coming into Gucci," bassist John Taylor recently told it to me.

"This was the first collaboration we did with Justin and Tim," Nick Rhodes comments in a press release. "It felt like we were in a nightclub. When we finished it we knew we were on the verge of something new." Simon Le Bon adds, "This reminded me of 'Notorious" when the band first split and we worked with Nile Rodgers."

Duran Duran now gives fans, DJs, mash up artists and remixers the opportunity to create their own version "Nite-Runner" and submit it into a remix contest. The winning track will be featured on the official Duran Duran website and the winner plus a guest will win tickets to see Duran Duran live on their upcoming U.S. tour.

Duran Duran has posted the multi-track audio file of the song that you can download guilt-free as a zipped Garageband project file. (Garageband is Apple Mac software application that enables people to easily create and edit sound files. Garageband was bundled with the purchase of my MacBook, so if you're working on a Mac you probably have it too.)
