GLXS (DIES) in january // WEMIX contest now

August 8, 2008

It’s a little far off, but Glorious Excess will be continuing (and concluding) in January. This will be the second half of the show that just concluded in LA this month.

To celebrate the show, I’ve partnered with, a site partially created by Ludacris; it’s a place for new musicians to collaborate, and a place for fans to discover new up-and-coming artists.

I have a new contest up there right now. Using my GLXS art as a theme, go to, upload your original songs, beats, vocals. I’m going to pick my 5 favorite songs, and then the WeMix community will vote for the winner.

The winner will go straight into the studio to record a full version of their song. I’ll join you to personally help out.

    Ooh cool new dates to remember! =D

    I was sooo ready to enter that competition Mike, but then I read the “rules and regulations” and saw it was only in the US…and then I was pissed.

    There are alot of websites like that. is my favourite…it works really well, I’m currently supporting a NY band on there.

    Woot! Damn this emotional roller coaster, first you get me all depressed thinking about Bernie Mac and now my adrenaline is kicking full speed. Its like 5am, your trying to kill me aren’t you? I’m gonna start that tomorrow. I’ll make something real nice.

    I need to tell my brother about this contest. He’s nineteen, and music is a strong passion of his. This would really benefit him.

  9. Blaesbjerg on August 9, 2008 at 7:14 am

    my husband is so entering in this contest! I showed him the artwork and he says he’s got some ideas already.
    Q-U-E-S-T-I-O-N: After the studio time, what happens to the song? Would it be put on a LInkin Park or Fort Minor CD? Or is it just a little something nice to add to a resume?

  16. MissNatalie1984 on August 8, 2008 at 7:19 pm

    hey man, it’s awesome you’re gonna help someone get their song up and out there.
    you should be treated as rock royalty just because of how much you give back to the people/fans.

  17. asianotter on August 8, 2008 at 5:55 pm

    Ooh! can’t wait for GLXS (Dies)!!!!!! keep us posted on how it’s shaping up. thanks for sharing, Mike!

  18. murry on August 8, 2008 at 5:08 pm

    Here’s my question. If I submit a track of me singing karaoke, what would my chances be?

    Damn. If only I had some semblance of songwriting ability.

  19. Anika on August 8, 2008 at 5:00 pm

    cool!!!! but itz only for U.S. …mhhhh! x(

  20. analoggirl on August 8, 2008 at 4:53 pm

    The WeMix contest is only for U.S. citizens. Boo. It’s interesting though. Can you tell us anything about Glorious Excess (Dies)?

  21. NataliaForgotten on August 8, 2008 at 4:46 pm

    I wanna listen to this music, sounds interesting! And I’m curious about GLXS (Dies). 😛

  22. lxlatinangelxl on August 8, 2008 at 4:11 pm

    sometimes i wish i was 10 years older,and this is one of those times….i really wish i was older and was in a band or something like that…then i would participate and if i won then i would meet you…but guess what? id probably die right away and would not be able to record the song xD…i remember in the hartford show when i saw you with your blue guitar i had to hurt myself just to realize if it was true or not, still i couldnt believe it,tears were about to run down my face,but you cant do that on OSC!!(back to GLXS) i cant wait for dies!!!!!!!!!!.. i wish i lived in LA but i dont, i live on CT….yeah,i know,i wish a lot things xD and for those people who are going:YOURE LUCKY!!!
