Microsoft and 343 Industries are drumming up excitement for the upcoming release of Halo 4 with an official soundtrack remix contest. Musicians choose one of three song stems to chop up, upload the finished work to SoundCloud, then wait for the "favorites" to come piling on. The winner with the most "favorites" will earn a Halo 4 prize pack, not to mention Internet swagger.
My boys Dj CUTMAN and Random a.k.a. Mega Ran have joined forces to pop out "The Promise." CUTMAN worked the instrumental while Ran penned the verses. Together, they school the rest of those chumps without even breaking a sweat. Well, that's not entirely true -- over 100 hours of work went into making this track spectacular. Naturally, they'll be getting my vote.
Of course, you don't have to vote for them. You can visit the contest site, sample some of the other remixers work, and choose one of those. But c'mon! We all know who the grand champions are already! Let's not kid around!
