Could you be the next big thing in electronic music? Enter the Global Producer Challenge music production competition and get a $200 pack of free plugins and coupons to help produce your track.
Beatport, Beatsource, LabelRadar, Loopcloud and Plugin Boutique have joined forces with electronic music labels to launch the Global Producer Challenge, a worldwide music production competition to find the next big EDM producer.
The music companies, together with record labels Def Jam Recordings, Nervous, Rekids, Shogun Audio, Spinnin, and DJcity Records, are offering a free participant pack with free plugins, sounds and courses worth $200 to aid budding producers who want to enter the competition.
What’s the prize? The winning producer gets a dream studio setup. There’s also the chance for finalists to win a bumper collection of goodies with plugins and equipment from iZotope, Novation, Cloudbounce and more, and the chance to get your track released by the record labels involved.
A team of expert judges will select 30 finalists across six genres: techno, house, DnB, mainstage and EDM, hip hop and trap, and reggaeton. If you reach the final round, your track will be made available to stream by the public, who will vote to determine the winner. The record labels will meanwhile be reviewing the finalists with a view to release the tracks with a full promo campaign.
Each finalist wins $2,500 worth of equipment and access to music services. The overall winner gets a studio setup worth $30,000 including an Akai MPC One, professional headphones, speakers and a bunch of amazing plugins.
