Stanton announced today that together with UK label Ninjatune, they have set up a giveaway promotion with cutting-edge Brazilian DJ Amon Tobin’s new live CD. Since the record was created completely with Stanton’s FinalScratch, Stanton and Ninjatunes decided to offer a chance for buyers of the new CD to win a FinalScratch system of their own.
“Amon Tobin’s live disc is an excellent representation of the power of FinalScratch,” says Pablo La Rosa, Stanton’s Marketing Manager. “What you hear is, with almost no exceptions, a front-to-back mix of the entire performance with no edits. It’s hard to imagine how such a feat could be accomplished with less advanced DJ tools. We thought that offering a FinalScratch system to someone who truly appreciates Amon’s level of DJ virtuosity was very appropriate.”
To enter the contest, purchasers of the new live CD can look inside the included booklet and find a unique number, allowing them to download a free track from the Ninjatune web site and enter the contest. The winner will be picked at random, with one FinalScratch system being offered for UK entrants and one for North American entrants.
Dean Ricca-Smith, project manager at Ninjatune says, “FinalScratch meant that our maestro could play out specially time stretched, tickled, tweaked and generally f*#%ed up tunes he had made on the road in a way that is entirely new and entirely clever. It also means his record box has more room for his crisply ironed pajamas and special 'Tour' Teddy Bear.”
