Attention audiophiles and beat-wizards: your time has come. Remix any and/or all of Bon Iver’s latest self-titled release for a brief whiff of fame, $1000, and a whole lot of bragging rights.

Ahhh the remix. What used to be a rarity and dance-floor treat has now turned into the industry’s way of doubling the lifespan of a popular release. Liked it the first time? Check it out now with bleeps and bloops! At a different tempo! With auto-tuned vocals…wait a minute! Could Bon Iver be the perfect artist for the remix? His sparse arrangements and seductively scientific simplicity make for a beat-mixers playground. And the guy is already all over the auto-tune. It’s like we are being set up…for this very project. Thank you kind sir. We accept your challenge.
