The Abandoned Lullaby Now In Stores; Fans Given Chance To Remix New Single For Big Money Prizes

The Contest:

This week marks the release of The Abandoned Lullaby, the brand new album from producer rjd2 and singer-songwriter Aaron Livingston, a pair that collectively makes up the duo Icebird. Last week, Icebird released the album's latest single, "Charmed Life," and now, rj and Aaron are giving fans a chance to remix the new song, with the grand prize winner receiving a variety of big money prizes.

The contest, presented by Native Instruments and SoundCloud, is now underway and will end on October 31st at 11:59pm EST. The stems for "Charmed Life" can be downloaded directly from the contest page, and all finished remixes can be submitted using the DropBox button also found on the contest page. rjd2 and Aaron Livingston will hand select the contest's grand prize winner, who will receive one MASCHINE MIKRO and one KOMPLETE 8, courtesy of Native Instruments, along with a one year Premium Pro Account, courtesy of SoundCloud.

To kick off the remix festivities, Icebird is excited to present a brand new, official remix for the single. Titled "Charmed Life (Candy Panther Remix)," the track pulls from the original's mesmerizing melody, but rather than being driven by the piano keys of the album version, the remix layers a mix of washed, warbled synths and jumpy percussion that offers a more subdued take on the song, while maintaining the funky elements that have made the single a fan-favorite.

In the third episode of Live from the Streets, we take you to Old City to meet up with Jus Allah. Jus was chilling out at Gigi's Bar and Grille and was cool enough to give us a quick shout out. After that, we introduce Janice, a friendly traveler from down South with a Ukulele. She had been on the road for a while but she took the time to play us her own version of one of her favorite songs by Andrew Jackson Jihad. Finally, we head down to city hall which is currently being occupied by Protestors and we take a look around.
