After almost a week of scrutiny, all at Turbo HQ were finally able to collectively put their heads together and pick a winner for our Trust Your Body Remix Competition. It wasn’t an easy choice, but after much debate, we chose the version by Butttrixxx (who is now a second consecutive Turbo remix competition winner).

We thank everybody for their submissions and wish you the best for future competitions!

We wanted to get to know a little more about the kid who has been manhandling the Turbo remix competition scene, so we had a little chat with the Ozzie with the key to our hearts:

Where are you from?

originally born and raised in South Australia and then moved to Victoria in the mid 90’s must have been around 8 or 9 yrs old

How old are you?

22

How long have you been producing?

around 3 yrs ago i started, no real idea what i was doing

How does it feel to be crowned King of the past two Turbo Remix Competitions?

big fan of turbo, so winning the 2 comps has been great.

How would you describe your sound and what are your influences?

influences …tricky to answer, i guess growing up in the 90’s, watched alot of video hits, rage, mtv catching the latter period of michael jackson, i remember watching the stradust video music sound better with you, and of course the daft punk video clips, hip-hop and rock came after that. The whole death row crew, ice cube, biggie, rage against the machine, korn, limpbizkit list goes on, didnt get into the techno, house or dance music again until around 2006-2007 when all the ed banger stuff was happening, as for my sound..cant really say. its always changing, on my soundcloud page i call everything majorhouse.

Your tracks show a wanton disregard for any sort of conventional arrangement. Why do you write them in this way?

never really thought about this but i would say the unconventional arrangements comes from the way i make loops and patterns which comes in blitzes of energy, that and laziness.

Would you rather take a ride on an elephant or a whale?

probably a whale no idea how that would work though
