Recently, Wildlife Control had a remix contest. The competition was judged by Wildlife Control and guest judges from Indie Shuffle and The Music Ninja.
Nearly a year ago, when they released their single, ”Analog or Digital,” I took a genuine interest in Wildlife Control, so of course I was flattered that they asked me to be a judge on behalf of Indie Shuffle.
I will tell you, it wasn’t a hard decision. Hands down, Ille Gal was by far the best in the batch. He’s an unestablished artist from Slovenia, and from the sound of his other material, he seems to focus on minimal, atmospheric electronic, leaning toward the dark side of things. While his remix of “Analog or Digital” retains the ambience Gal is accustomed to, it’s got a much brighter sound.
I think it’s safe to say Gal broke his own mold, and a little less safe to say (but I’m going to say it anyway): this may be his best work. So props to you Ille Gal, and for all the rest of you, I hope you enjoy this dreamy remix of “Analog or Digital.” If you’re interested in any of the runner-ups, visit the Wildlife Control website.
