Beaport has announced Umek – “Slap” remix contest. Grab the stems ($1.99 USD) and get prizes from PointBlankOnline, Native Instruments and more. Good luck!

Here the details:

Do you remember the first time you ever got slapped? No, we don’t mean punishment for mouthing off—we’re talking about your first experience of Umek [a]‘s “Slap,” the first single off his 2010 album Responding to Dynamic. With its chest-crushing bass and grinding, metallic top line, it had a way of scrambling dancefloors to a pulp, cementing its place in the boxes of a range of DJs—Mark Knight, Joey Beltram, Len Faki, Danny Howells, Spektre, and Paco Osuna, to name just a few.

Now Umek and 1605 are giving you the chance to strike back with the “Slap” remix contest. Get the stems here, put an original spin on one of Umek’s best-loved tracks, and you could be the one beating dancefloors into submission. And, 1605 will donate the proceeds from stems sales to the Japanese Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Relief.
