Findremix and Sound Avenue have teamed up to launch a remix contest of Greek top producer dPen. His tracks enjoy, among others, the support of John Digweed Sasha, Hernan Cattaneo, Laurent Garnier, Nick Warren, Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren and Paul Van Dyk. His sound has something unique as he combines tech beats with a progressive feeling and hunting melodies. Every song is a small story that reflects feelings and emotions.

Sound Avenue is a relatively young Belgian label that was founded last summer by the guys behind Mitrinique & Yunta. In a short time they have built a solid reputation with releases & remixes from producers such as Sound Process, Nikko Z, Andy Arias, Martin Garcia, Liz Cirelli, Petar Dundov, Deepfunk and many others. Each release is supported by a lot of a-list DJs. SA wants to give the possibility to new unknown producers to have their remix on the upcoming dPen release!

Official sponsors for this competition are SoundCloud, Prime Loops, Sugar Bytes and Camel Audio.

Closing date for submissions is May 14th, 2012 23:59:59 GMT+1 (Central European Time).
