RemixThis! Ditka Style

The 85 Bears

Yes, another RemixThis! contest… and a different one at that, a MUCH different one. While the last two were tracks by fantastic rappers, this is a track by an indie rock band. Killer, right?

So, I’ll be you just want me to shut up and get to the point now, right?

1. Here’s the accapella track of the85bears track entitled “Meshac”: CLICK HERE

2. Chop/Slice/Dice/Speed Up/Slow Down/Etc the track into the best gosh darn remix you can rock.

3. Email it to me by October 23rd at 1700 hours.

4. Sit back and talk to your friends about Ditka and Da Bears until the results are released on next month’s mixtape.

“What do I win?” you ask. You win three prizes… first the85bears will post your track on their heavy frequented MySpace page to share with their friends and other folks on the Interweb. Second, I will put together a spotlight piece on you for this site, where I highlight who you are, what you do, and why you are awesome. Last, but not least, I will share the track for download on not only the next mixtape but also with the readers of Decapolis, another website I contribute to. So in other words… the winner gets mad publicity from thepaintedman and the85bears.

Rock? ROCK!

(Pssst… if you want a second track of the85bears entitled “The Vine” to tinker with just for fun, click here)
