FunKontrol, the first-ever remix-only record label, celebrated their launch by releasing a July 4th Compilation of what it calls “summer friendly:remixes. The selection features FunKontrol artists like DJ Enferno, Terry Urban, The Melker Project remixing Trinidad James, Bob Marley, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Rick Ross, Neil Diamond among others.Summer friendly indeed…
FunKontrol is the brainchild of Scott Melker AKA “The Melker Project.” Utilizing Legitmix, a platform that allows DJs, Producers and Remixers to legally sell sampled content without clearance, FunKontrol has created the first label exclusively for remixed content. Their roster includes a number of world-renowned producers and DJs and is constantly expanding.
FunKontrol does not actually sell their remixes, but rather “Legitmix files,” which work like digital instructions fans can use to recreate the remixes using their own copies of the tracks the artists sample – with just a few mouse clicks. If fans are missing any of the tracks sampled, Legitmix makes it easy to buy them from iTunes – getting the sampled artists credited and paid as well.
