Here’s a big opportunity for you aspiring producers: Mark Knight and Toolroom Records have teamed up with Beatport to launch a fresh and exciting co-production competition.
This competition aims to give up-and-coming producers the chance to work with one of the industry’s leading artists, launch their music career with the world’s premier dance label, and be financially rewarded for their work, receiving 50% of publishing and an equal share of artist sales royalties.
The basics of the competition are simple. Mark Knight will upload an eight-bar loop to Beatport (available as of June 10th) and one MIDI part (the bassline, but do with it what you will!) to the Toolroom online store. Entrants must finish the production, give it a name, and upload it to Beatport’s SoundCloud Dropbox for the competition by July 15th.
The winning track, as chosen by Mark Knight, will be announced on July 19th and released in physical format as an ‘exclusive track’ on Mark Knight’s forthcoming Toolroom Knights CD (out Oct 2010), as well as made available on Beatport.
The winner receives:
• 50% of publishing & equal share of artist sales royalties
• Full PR & marketing campaign to launch their career
• SoundCloud Pro account
• Native Instruments Maschine
• Focal CMS 40 studio monitors from SCV London
• Annual subscription to Sonicacademy & 6 months personal mentoring
