When it comes to most remix contests in EDM culture you have have to be a wiz at programs like Ableton and Logic. Not only that, but you better know your way around VST effects and other plug-ins to make your remix really stand out.
Well the teams over at Indiloop and Beatstars have come up with a contest where you can throw all that tedious software out the window and just have some fun laying out remixes of your favorite tracks. All the stems/samples are broken down for you, so all you really need is an appreciateion of music and a creative mind to make it happen.
In this contest, you have the music of three different artists to choose from - The Jets, Bostich & Fussible and Alexander Spit. You just have to select two stems form those artists in order to be eligible. As an added plus you can also select any stems from Indiloop's A-List artists (from Beethoven to Hood Internet).
Boom you're ready to remix. Move the stems wherever, however you want and in about 5 minutes you can have a track laid out and ready to rock. Easy breezy . . .
The prizes aren't chump change either, with the first place winner taking a $2000 and the second place winner grabbing $500. The prize packs also feature Indiloop points and Beatstars sounds, so if you have skill you'll have everything you need to keep your newfound producer momentum going.
You can enter the contest here on Indiloop.
Bring your A game and who knows, we might see you on the touring circuit in no time!
