Vibratto Wins PIXELYNX and Spinnin’ Records Remix Competition, Selected by CYPHER NFT Community in Web3 Metaverse

Vibratto "Nikes" Remix WINS!

Vibratto, (Brian Epling) a rising star in the electronic music scene, has won PIXELYNX’s music remix competition. PIXELYNX, a music metaverse company founded by Deadmau5 and Richie Hawtin, teamed up with Spinnin’ Records and DJ Joel Corry to launch a three-week crowdsourced remix competition.

The competition, centered around a remix of Joel Corry’s track “Nikes,” gave aspiring DJs a chance to compete for the opportunity to have their work released on Spinnin’ Talent Pool Records. The competition committee voted on their top five favorite submissions, which were announced on April 11.

CYPHER, a virtual music artist living and performing in PIXELYNX’s flagship game ELYNXIR, was part of the selection process. CYPHER is a factionalized NFT that is collectively owned by a group of 20 community members called ASTRAL, who hold voting rights to guide the direction of projects within the PIXELYNX metaverse.

Vibratto was chosen by CYPHER’s group of fractional owners on the ELYNXIR platform, and his winning track will also have an accompanying music video co-created by both the ELYNXIR community and Spinnin’ fans through a series of quests and challenges within PIXELYNX’s Discord to premiere at the IMS in Ibiza Spain, April 26-28.

Quote from Vibratto

“I’m beyond grateful for winning the worldwide remix competition for “Nikes” by Joel Corry and Ron Carroll. It’s an absolute honor to be recognized among so many talented producers and DJs. I poured my heart and soul into creating a remix that would bring a fresh and unique sound to this incredible track. I can’t wait for fans to hear it and dance along!” – Vibratto, winner of the “Nikes” remix competition.

As I AM: The Life & Time$ of DJ AM Las Vegas Premiere

I am incredibly honored and humbled to have worked with “Team AM” on the Las Vegas Premiere of “As I AM: The Life and Time$ of DJ AM” documenting not only his musical journey but also his inner journey and struggles with drug addiction. The red carpet event took place at the Brenden Theatres in Las Vegas at the Palms Casino Resort where AM held his very last residency. The film was followed by a Q&A with Director Kevin Kerslake and Jonathan “Skecky” Green which gave us an private look deeper into the film and AM himself. The afterparty was a spectacular showcase of musical talent organized by DJ 88 and her “Pop-Up” party. We saw performances by: DJ Scene, VICE, Spyder and Melo D. Also in attendance were, myself (duh!) DJ Shift, Kevin Scott (who also was the film producer), KidFunk, Warren Peace (also a producer) and many, many more.

It was an incredible night and I highly recommend seeing the film which is currently charting #2 on iTunes. See below for the trailer and here for the link to download and watch!
