Spanish superblog Buffet Libre has invited us at Gee Wizz to take part in 'Rewind'. Rewind is an 80s music cover project, and they have invited many amazing contemporary artists to perform songs from that awesome era. The songs will be compiled and turned into a mixtape that will be available in July, along with a mix of the original songs, so stay tuned!

Dragonette, Sidechains, The Toxic Avenger, Culture Prophet, Grum, Mendetz, Anoraak, ER2, The Amplid, Moulinex, Purple Crush, RAC, Russ Chimes, UMYO, Hello Tokyo, CFCF, Fisk vs. Blende, Oh Snap!, Xinobi, The Shoes, CSK OK, Keenhouse, Cryptonites, Adventure Kid, !Trash Yourself, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Paper Scissors, Tknik, Black Dominoes, Vitamins For You, Computer Club, Glitch Bitch, Database, South Central, Clash The Disko Kids, Lillica Libertine, Daroc, Pink Skull, Damage, Beesmunt Soundsystem, Royal Rumble, Mat Payne, Loud Pipes, We Are Terrorists, Emotiquon, Night Facilities, Tempest Disco.
