Afrojack announces ‘Global Remix Competition’
A legend of the modern electronic music era and creator of some of the most iconic productions. Afrojack‘s contribution to electronic music has been endless and truly unrivalled. His latest ‘Press Play EP’ is full of diverse tracks varying from electro house bangers to tracks experimenting with more pop, progressive and moombahton sounds, all whilst sounding harmonious and produced to the highest standards. Afrojack is now giving upcoming producers the opportunity to remix his track ‘Let It Rip’, featuring Brohug and Titus. By simply signing up online and receiving the stems, producers will have until January 14th to submit their remix. The winner, or winners, could receive an artist development contract with Wall Recordings, an official release of the remix, a pair of PMC result6 studio monitors, and could even be taken on tour.
In a recent interview with Billboard, Afrojack stated:
“Everyone always says they wanna be a DJ or producer. This is your shot. It’s not like we’re looking for one winner. This isn’t a TV show. It’s not a movie. It’s real life. We’re looking for talented people, so maybe we will find 10, and I tell you honestly, maybe we’ll find zero, but I can’t imagine finding zero. That would be very disappointing – but there are no rules.”
He also explains how he is looking for something more than just a remix but wants to learn about the artist behind it as well.
“We’re looking for passionate people that really can prove that they want this because it’s not necessarily about the quality of the remix. Of course, there needs to be a certain level of skill, but it’s also how far will you go? How hard will you work? It’s not just the remix, it’s also the presentation. Who are you? We’re not looking for a cool remix, we’re looking for the person behind the cool remix – or the cool person behind maybe a not-so-good remix. We’ll see. We don’t know.”
