Kuffdam Remix Contest

Status: Winners announced!

Update #1: Midi pack available.
Update #2: New sponsor added to the comp: Synapse Audio.

Findremix has teamed up with Hyline Music to kick off a new top remix contest featuring the United Kingdom’s trance artist Kuffdam. Winners will get released on Hyline Music plus prizes by NUSofting, Sknote and Tek’it Audio.

Kuffdam has in recent years come to embody the future of trance with a string of hit productions and remixes. A favourite with the trance establishment worldwide and especially Paul van Dyk and his Vandit imprint. 2008 saw Kuffdam come of age coupling a groundbreaking album on Vandit with a world tour taking in the biggest and best clubs and events worldwide. In 2009 many exceptional singles followed, ‘The Last Time’ and ‘Break My Fall’ were both great examples of today’s modern trance sound. After taking the majority of 2010 off Kuffdam returned in February of 2011 with his ‘City Lights’ EP on Hyline Music which featured the vocals of Grant Paterson.

Kuffdam’s brand of energetic, driving trance was received to rave reviews once again and this turned out to be the perfect teaser for Kuffdam’s much rumoured new album ‘City Lights’ which is just hitting Beatport exclusive now. To help celebrate the long awaited and much anticipated new Kuffdam album, Hyline Music is offering you the chance to remix one of the tracks from it.

‘We Gotta Go (Again)’ is Kuffdam’s new collaboration with vocalist Grant Paterson and it’s one of the standout tracks from his new ‘City Lights’ album that is sure to be supported by the top trance DJs in the industry. Download the free ‘We Gotta Go (Again)’ stems and get started on remixing this big room trance monster in your own unique style.

We are open to all styles of electronic music for this competition, just be creative and put a high emphasis on the quality of your work.
The top three winning remixes will get their remix released on Hyline Music and the 1st winner will be offered for a future Release on Hyline Music and mastered by Cid Inc. The winners will be chosen by Kuffdam and Hyline Music label boss Carsten Million.

Closing date for submissions is October 23rd 23:59:59 GMT+1 (Central European Time).
