Remix Contest: Christian Burns & Paul van Dyk - "We Are Tonight"

A one time rock star, Christian Burns has worn many hats in his musical career.  As a vocalist, guitarist, songwriter, and now renowned trance producer, Burns has come a long way from his groundbreaking collaborations with Tiesto many years ago.   His hard work has payed off with a forthcoming album release on the world's premier trance label, Armada Music.  For our biggest remix competition to date we're giving budding producers around the world an opportunity to remix the hit single from Burns' album, a collaboration with the legendary Paul van Dyk entitled 'We Are Tonight.'

Download the stems for the remix HERE. Submit your remixes by July 23rd at 11:59 PM. The contest will close August 6th and we will be announcing a winner shortly after!  

The winner, judged by Earmilk and A&R scouts from Armada, will see their creation receive an official release on Armada Music, accompanied by a proper servicing campaign, a full scale feature on Earmilk, and marketed across the entire Wavo network.  


From "In the Dark," the lead single off of the Grammy nominated Elements of Life album, Christian's reputation skyrocketed. That track received 5 million YouTube hits and resulted in Christian joining Tiësto on a massive world tour. Since then he was worked and even toured with the likes of BT, Armin Van Buuren (on his album Mirage), Benny Benassi, and of course Tiesto. Christian's seamless transition from rock music to being one of the most in-demand songwriters and dance music producers is reflected in the variety and originality of his upcoming album. 

What needs to be said about Paul van Dyk? Possibly Germany's most famous electronic musician, PvD is one of the original trance superstars.   Twice voted #1 on DJ Mag's list, and boasting over 3.5 million album sales, the legendary producer has even earned a Grammy nomination.  He has remixed the likes of Madonna, Justin Timberlake, U2 and Depeche Mode, but may be even more well known more for his sensational DJ sets.  He's hosted nights at every one of the biggest clubs in the world, and has headlined festivals the world over.

  • Ehsun and Huan: if you can't establish the key (tonality) do you think you should continue with this 'producing / remixing thingie? Sorry, but I strongly belive that you need a minimum of music theory knowledge before even thinking of making something notable in this business.

    Know your limitations before saying 'meh' to anything...
