RJD2 brings democracy to the people with fan-created B-side contest

If there’s one musician’s name that is synonymous with the phrase “Democracy in Action,”* it must surely be Bruce “The Boss” Springsteen er, RJD2. The talented producer/instrumentalist just released Inversions of the Colossus, an album of B-sides and instrumentals on his own RJ’s Electrical Connections label, a companion album to The Colossus (TMT Review) from earlier this year. And now, fans have the chance to use the free remixing software available here and do a number on RJ’s track “The Glow.” One and only one lucky fan will reap all the fame, champagne, and glory that comes with the honor of having your winning remix included with a Flosstradamus remix as the B-sides to the as-yet-unreleased digital single.

Also in RJD2 news, you can now pick up free tracks from Inversions of the Colossus on dude’s MySpace page, including a hip-hop remix of Bassnectar’s “Son’s Cycle” and a bootyshakin’ remix of Candy Panther’s “The Glow,” which is coincidentally also the track featured in the remix competition.

* Okay, so looking back on this I see that it’s not TECHNICALLY democracy as the fans are not also doing the voting. But you know what I mean, right, like about how anyone can participate? Right? Riiiiight?
