    I really liked participating in this contest. I took out the rapper’s vocals and inserted my own vocals and lyrics for my remix opportunity. What I like about Indaba Music is the fact that I am participating in real world practice that matters. Practice matters. I do not see a lot of vocal substitution with samples or an artist’s own voice from other “remixers”. These items (professional samples of vocals) could be created at the, “Indaba Factory” and sold for credits or money (very small cost of course – buying some “bling?”). This would help the bottom line at Indaba too. This might be an opportunity for advertisers to get their product into the song vocally and professionally. The band that contributed the song might see some opportunity if the advertiser wants to place a song remix in an ad campaign. And, it opens up practice for artist’s here in mixing vocals both live and sampled vocals. The seed has been planted, and if it was already planted before, then I just gave it some fertilizer… sort of speak. :) BL8ant
