In October Microsoft decided to team up with Linkin Park and Steve Aoki to see who could best remix their song, A Light That Never Comes. Two months later, the winner has been chosen, and any fan of EDM (Electronic Dance Music) should give it a good listen after the break.

The grand prize winner, Brian Yates, walked away with $2,500, a Surface Pro 2 with Surface Music Kit, and a spot on Linkin Park’s upcoming EP album. Five runners up including Alex Raniswsky, John Doe, Harel Tsemah, DJ ALOTOMANI, and Freddie Westburn, will each receive $500 and a Surface 2 for their work.

"I've always been a big fan of Linkin Park ever since I first heard Hybrid Theory over a decade ago, so I was pretty excited to be able to remix one of their tracks." – Brian Yates

What do you think of Yates’ remix? Are you ready to pick up a Surface Music Kit and drop some of your own beats?
