MONGOLIA REMIX CONTEST

In 2008, was the time of Mongolia Expedisound, followed by China Expedisound four years later. In both occasions, a remix contest was proposed to the local producers based on the soundbanks collected during the two trips.
The aim of the contest, like the one of Expedisound Albums series, was in fact to rework the samples and create atmospheres that would invite the listener to a musical trip. For each contest, 5 tracks has been selected that you will be now able to download and share!
