Beatport has kicked off a new remix contest featuring Electro House top artist Deadmau5. You need to make a remix for his unreleased track “SOFI Needs A Ladder” to win some pretty amazing prizes, including an official release on Mau5trap. Good luck!

Here the details:

Calling all DJs and producers! Beatport is raising the stakes with our next remix contest. Deadmau5 is looking for the ultimate jack of all trades to remix his unreleased hit ”SOFI Needs A Ladder.” His favorite remix will not only be included on mau5trap’s official “SOFI Needs A Ladder” release, but the winning remixer will also be booked for an opening slot for the mau5 himself at one of his sought-out live appearances.

The opportunity

Starting September 21st, 2010, Beatport users are able to download the remix parts of Deadmau5 ”SOFI Needs A Ladder,” remix it, and upload their finished track to Beatportal for the voting round.

The first round of finalists will be divided into two categories; 10 user voted (based on the highest number of spins) and 10 editors’ favorites (picked by Beatport’s music staff). From these 20 nominees, Deadmau5 and his management team will ask the producers of their top 10 favorite remixes to flex their DJing skills by submitting a 30-minute mix for the final round of judging.


From the submitted mixes Deadmau5 will select his favorite DJ to receive the grand prize pack of:

- The winning remix included on mau5trap’s official release of ”SOFI Needs A Ladder
- The selected winning artist will also be booked for an opening performance slot during one of mau5’s critically acclaimed live appearances.
- $250 Beatport pre-paid card
- Beatport swag pack including t-shirts and Beatport bag
- 1 Vmoda Crossfade LP headphones
