The music industry is saturated with hundreds of new productions on a daily basis. Some tunes go viral instantly, while others seem to float perpetually in underrated territory where only the most music-obsessed fans dare to tread. So how do you know when your own production is actually good? TuneRise is here to tell you just that with a contest platform created to gauge tracks against one another in head-to-head competition. Skilled industry professionals will compare each track submission with discerning ears, so that the best quality productions get the recognition they deserve.

It’s not easy to be a struggling musician / artist — we get it. Between maintaining a constant presence on social media, producing new tracks, and performing, it can be tough for new producers when their hard work doesn’t yield the savory results to match their lofty dreams. Our contest offers some light at the end of the tunnel with honest music validation, career-launching prizes, and mentorships with top industry professionals. All you’ve got to do is submit your track, and our panel of judges will do the rest.

The first prize winner will not only get $3,000 spending money at Guitar Center, but he/she will be flown out to Los Angeles to be mentored by Paper Diamond (pictured above), and other professionals in varying fields of the music industry. In addition to the Guitar Center spree, and mentorship, your track will be promoted across social media channels garnering 1,000,000+ followers with additional promotion on YourEDM.com, and Tunerise’s SoundCloud and Spotify accounts. The winner will also get a Novation Circuit, and custom V-Moda headphones.
