Lena Katina, the star of the Russian pop sensation, t.A.T.u, has launched the t.A.T.u. Remix Contest at Kroogi.com, where musicians can put their spin on several t.A.T.u. songs from their latest album, "Waste Management," for an upcoming Remix Compilation release.
Musicians can create remixes in the following five styles: Downtempo, Deep House, Hip Hop, Psy-Trance, and Dub.
t.A.T.u., featuring Lena Katina and Yulia Volkova, is the most successful Russian band of all time, with multiple chart-topping songs and millions of albums sold worldwide, including over 5 million copies of their debut album ("200 km/h in the Wrong Lane").
The t.A.T.u. Remix Contest is sponsored and hosted by Kroogi.com, a global 'content community' of artists, musicians, writers, videographers and photographers who post music, books, photos, videos, and art that fans download and pay for on a "Pay What You Want" model. Kroogi represents the middle ground between free, illegal download sites and fixed-fee models like iTunes.
Kroogi was founded by Miro Sarbaev, a director at Shawn Fanning's Napster and Snocap. After a year building a community of artists and fans in Russia, Kroogi.com is launching its beta in the U.S. with the t.A.T.u. Remix Contest.
"Musicians, DJs, music producers, and remixers are invited to download stems of the original masters from four t.A.T.u. songs at Kroogi.com, mix them into their own tracks, and post them on Kroogi," said Kroogi founder Miro Sarbaev. "The 12 best tracks will be selected for a Remix Compilation release."
