Contest: Remix Bateau and Win an AMX Presents Gig


Over here at Ovrld, we’e got a not-so-secret crush on the musical stylings of Black Market Pluto’s trip hop queen Bateau. A former folk singer turned R&B chantreuse, Bateau’s musical makeover has made her one of the most promising acts to emerge in the local scene, with a voice that is playful and dangerous, like a tango ending in a knife to the back. So when Black Market Pluto reached out about working together to get Bateau’s music out there in a different way, we leapt at the chance.

We’ve partnered with Black Market Pluto and Weird City Festival¬†Austin Mic Exchange to conduct a remix contest for Bateau’s lost track “Circles.” It’s a song about rejecting the safe, comfortable life in favor of chasing your dreams and we want to help some lucky contender realize their own dream through it. We’ve provided the stems for you to download below and remix as something new and different. This coming Monday, September 7th, we’re going to announce our picks for our five favorite for Ovrld’s readers to vote on, with the winner getting announced Friday, September 11th. The winner will receive an opening slot on an upcoming, TBA AMX Presents show. So get on it, kids, and show us what you’ve got, send your remixes to us at
