You know whats nerdier than contrasting the merits of the iPhone versus those of the Motorola Droid (twice)? Pitting the two phones against each other in a sound effect remix battle. You know what’s even nerdier than that? Absolutely nothing.
There’s only one concrete rule of the competition: each entry must include at least one system sound effect from either the iPhone or the Droid. Most of the tracks — especially those currently leading the competition — use multiple. The current leader, Aurelien STRIDE’s Droid Hip Hop Mix, uses the the Droid’s “Ta-da” and “Beatbox” ringtones, with the infamous “DROOOOID” startup/notification sound thrown in for good measure.
Through some act of craziness on Indaba’s part, we’re not able to embed our favorite tracks. Here’s a list of just a few that are worth checking out:
- Josh Robert’s iPhone Funk
- David Breaux’s Droid Remix
- Unknown Citizen’s DroidRock
- DJ Well – FillGood iPhone Piano Mix
Be sure to check out all of the submissions, and let us know in the comments if you find any other gems in there.
