After carefully going through over 200 original submissions a decision has been made. We would just like to thank all who participated and would like to mention that it was far from easy picking a winner. There was a ton of very well produced original tracks and we wish we didn’t only have to pick one!
But without further adieu, your Original Mix contest winner is….
E.SoX – Soulful Sessions[audio:http://www.electronicaoasis.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Soulful Session.mp3|titles=Soulful Session.mp3]
E.SoX’s track is the epitome of what is considered raw deep house. The perfect mix of rhythmic congos with a rolling bassline infused with a perfectly fitting vocal makes this an unbelievableÂ production. One thing I’d also like to point out is the beautiful trumpet sample that appears throughout the track. With a contest filled with a majority of electro and dubstep submissions it is very impressive that a deep house track would stand out so clearly for it was most certainly a diamond in the rough.
So congratulations to E.SoX, and everyone stay on the look out for a featured spotlight and interview on our winner next week!
Thanks again to Indaba Music and everyone who entered, keep up the good work!
