New remix contest by Beatport which is giving the opportunity to remix “Hot Mess” from Chromeo. Big prizes!

Here the details:

If you like getting messy, here’s your chance to do just that—and be rewarded for it. Announcing Chromeo‘s “Hot Mess” remix contest.

”Hot Mess,” featuring Elly Jackson, is the latest single from Chromeo’s recent album Business Casual, and it features an all-star cast of remixers including Duck Sauce, Djedjotronic, and Riva Starr. Now you have the chance to join their ranks: just download the remix parts and work your magic on the Montreal duo’s sultry funk.

From all contest entries, Turbo Recordings‘ A&R crew will select their 5 favorite selections; these, along with the 5 top-spun remixes, will go on to a select panel of pro DJs and producers (yet to be named), who will determine the grand-prize winner.

The winning remix will be released on Tiga’s Turbo Recordings, and the producer of the winning remix will also take home a massive prize package including Native Instruments’ Audio 2DJ, Traktor Pro, Traktor Kontrol X1, and an X1 Bag; V-Moda Remote Remix earbuds; Izotope Stutter Edit and Mix & Master Bundle including Ozone 4 and Alloy; an online music-production course from Point Blank; a $200 Beatport voucher; a Turbo Recordings merch package including t-shirt, sweatshirt, Chromeo 12” and CD; a one-year Turbo Recordings subscription (one year of Turbo single releases); and, finally, a Big Beat/Atlantic t-shirt.

The most spun entry will take home Native Instruments’ Audio 2DJ and Traktor Duo; Izotope Stutter Edit; a Big Beat t-shirt; and a $50 Beatport voucher.

The submission period begins March 22 and ends two weeks later, so don’t mess around: it’s time to make a “Hot Mess”!
