Back in October, psychedelic rock band, Slightly Stoopid, hosted a remix contest with Indaba Music. It featured their hit, “Top of the World”, which reached No. 13 on the Billboard 200. Not too shabby! Indaba group, The Chromatics, ended up winning the contest with their outstanding track, but it wasn’t the cash prize that made this experience so valuable, it was the unexpected exposure.
Recently, Slightly Stoopid posted the winning remix onto their Soundcloud Profile lending the track an impressive tally of 20,667 plays, 652 likes, 86 reposts, and 45 comments… so far. In fact, it has garnered more attention than any other individual Slightly Stoopid track on Souncloud – can you believe it?!
As a band that shares Slightly Stoopid’s reggae influences, The Chromatics now have direct exposure to fans of the genre, which is truly invaluable in growing their own base of followers. Check out their winning remix here:
