Delerium Remix Contest 

LOS ANGELES/VANCOUVER, Jan. 15 - Fans of Delerium can download various vocal and instrumental tracks (as well as an MP3 of the original song) from "After All," the first single from Delerium's forthcoming release "Chimera" (release date: May 20, 2003) as part of a remix contest beginning Jan. 17th that will afford the winning remixer a spot on the commercial release of "Chimera."

The contest to remix "After All," will remain open until Feb. 14 at 5:00pm PST, at which time all treatments of the recording will be reviewed by a panel of judges comprised of the members of Delerium and representatives of Nettwerk America (US) and Nettwerk Productions (Canada). The winning remixer will be announced on Feb. 28 and will have his or her remix featured on the bonus disc that will accompany "Chimera."

Delerium, a.k.a. Bill Leeb, has sold over one million records worldwide, with 500,000 sold in the U.S. alone. With "Chimera," the band's fourth release on Nettwerk, the tradition of featuring established and emerging guest vocalists continue.  Featured on "Chimera," are Julee Cruise (best known for her work with Angelo Badalamenti), Sixpence None The Richer's Leigh Nash (she also lent her vocals to "Innocente" from Delerium's 2000 album, "Poem," which landed in the Top 5 on Billboard's Hot Dance chart), and up and coming vocalist Zoe Johnston (who has worked with Dido and Faithless previously). Other successful collaborations include Matthew Sweet's treatment of "Daylight," and of course Delerium's best known song: the Sarah McLachlan led single "Silence," which topped dance charts in the US, Canada, UK, Belgium, Australia and Ireland.

Since the release of "Poem," Bill Leeb has been working on several remix projects as well as recording for "Chimera," while album collaborator and former Frontline Assembly partner, Rhys Fulber has added another alias with Conjure One and the eponymous debut. Conjure One's "Conjure One" has received critical accolades from numerous publications including Mixer and URB, while the single "Tears From The Moon" is currently at #6 on the Billboard Hot Dance chart and is expected to go Top 5 later this week.
