Mark Knight’s Toolroom Remix Contest

| June 30th, 2010 | No Comments »

With all of the remix contests popping up all over the internet (some legit, some not-so-legit), its refreshing to see a contest that seems to be opening up the competition for all the right reasons.

Here’s what Mark Knight had to say:

“There seems to be an over saturation of remix competitions at the moment, but these aren’t really proving a spring board for people careers. With myself as a producer and Toolroom as a leading label, we felt we had the vehicle to offer up something innovative and put something back into the development of up and coming artists. The ethos of Toolroom has been one of finding and nurturing new talent – ala Funkagenda and Dave Spoon. We’re looking for the stars of the future right now, so this co-production competition makes perfect sense. With the 8 bar loop I’ve provided, I’ve laid down the backbone of the track with enough scope for interpretation. What I’m looking for is clever use of the parts, creative sound design with any new parts included and a good arrangement. Over to you guys…”

The catch is that you have to buy the remix pack (its only a couple of bucks at least)

“Future Music Magazine,Mark Knight and Toolroom Records have teamed up with Beatport and Sonic Academy to launch a fresh and exciting ‘co-production’ competition – the first of its kind. The idea of the competition is to give up and coming producers the chance to work with one of the industry’s leading artists, launch their music career with the world’s premier dance label and be financially rewarded for their work, receiving 50% of publishing and an equal share of artist sales royalties. Not a bad deal at all.”
If you want to enter, get to the studio because you’ve got to upload your gem to Beatport’s SoundCloud by the 15th of July.
