Contest Rules, Itinerary & Prizes


Attention producers, please email all submissions to no later then Monday, September, 20th. Only one submission per producer will be accepted. The files for the remix contest include an MP3 file of the original version of “Love, Love” in addition to a WAV file of the acapella. The acapella is zero pointed and should synchronize properly with any digital audio workstation. Music should be in an mp3 format and should default to any iTunes media player. Sample-free remixes are allowed, but not required. The original version of the track is 90 Beats Per Minute, but may be altered. Files should be labeled accordingly with song title first, followed by the producer’s name and Remix in parenthesis, ie: I Am (Joe Smith Remix).mp3. *Due to the high volume of submissions, it becomes very difficult to cross reference submissions with their corresponding email addresses and therefore it is critical to include your email address in the comment field of the iTunes info panel. In your email, please provide us with your social network URLs (twitter/facebook) along with your discography bio/epk if applicable. Please include a few sentences about yourself and your production background. Good luck!

Ahora en castellano para los que no se lleven bien con el ingles (aunque hoy en dia es casi un deber)

FECHA LIMITE: 20 de Septiembre
- El mp3 (enviadlo a 320 kbps) debeis llamarlo. Love Love (vuestroaka remix).mp3 (EJEMPLO: Love Love (aiSHO remix).mp3)
- Poned en el campo de comentarios de la información del mp3 vuestro mail
- En el mail donde adjunteis el mp3, poned vuestro twitter/facebook/myspace, si teneis hecha una bio cortita etc mejor.
- Especifica que se permite los beats sin samples, pero que no es obligatorio. Como el premio es editarlo en Itunes etc, si lo basais en sample es posible que si el dueño del sample reclama derechos del sample, los gastos corran a vuestra cuenta (pero para eso, el dueño del sample tiene que escuchar el remix primero!)

Ropa y editar el remix conjunto al tema original en formato "cd-single" en itunes y resto de distribuidores digitales(mediante contrato con la discografica Coalmine Records)


Suerte a los que participeis, si quereis compartir vuestros remixes ponedlo en los comentarios de esta noticia!
