Chicago-based rockers I:SCINTILLA announce the 5 finalists for a remix contest for their new single, "Carmena Saturna". The winning remix will be released as the b-side to the band’s third single, to be released on August 31. “Carmena Saturna" is replete with spooky synths, grinding guitars and chillingly dramatic musical arcs,” says Blackbook of the single they premiered. All income generated from sales of the contest will be donated to the charity Darkest Before Dawn.
The five finalists have been selected: Digital Shadows, Skyline, Tragic Impulse, Axon Rise, and Restriction 9. Each finalist's remix is now available as part of a "Carmena Saturna Remix Contest" release via BandCamp HERE: https://iscintilla.bandcamp.com/album/carmena-saturna-remix-contest.
Fans (and all philanthropists) can “vote” by purchasing their favorite remix[es] for $1.00 USD or more. The track that generates the most income by Friday, August 10 is the winner. For those that would like to purchase the entire release without casting a specific vote, there is an option to purchase all five tracks for $5.00 USD or more. All sales generated by the remix contest (minus BandCamp fees) will be donated to Darkest Before Dawn.
When the band experimented with this remix contest idea in 2013, they received donations up to $100 per track and they hope that level of kindness returns in 2018.
Darkest Before Dawn is a new non-profit organization based in Chicago and Los Angeles with one simple, yet urgent goal: to provide resources, support, and community for our nightlife, restaurant and music venue industry, who's late hours and isolated commutes leave them susceptible to depression, addiction and suicide. Recent data points to a high rate of chemical dependency and suicide for this demographic in our country, especially in the very industries built to provide excitement, leisure and happiness to everyone else. They are the people heading home in the early morning hours, when businesses are closed, the streets are empty, and it truly is the darkest period of time before the dawn.
