The B-Side Project, sponsored by Prism Sound, has officially opened registration for producers to take part in its global remix competition. The annual competition is a great way for producers of all genres to showcase their skills on original pieces of work provided by musicians, bands and composers exclusively for the project.
If you are a producer interested in getting involved, register at b-sideproject.org from now until Aug. 31. More than $17,000 worth of studio gear, publishing contracts and much more is up for grabs.
Launched in 2009, the B-Side project is renowned for connecting musicians and producers across a wide range of genres.
Artists who make the winning tracks can have their remix mastered at Metropolis Studios in London, where artists such as The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and Amy Winehouse have all recorded. Each of the remix tracks in the top 10 will be mastered at Metropolis and featured on an album to be digitally released on B-Side Recordings.
The judging panel will consist of chart topping dance stars and respected live act Clean Bandit; Music Sounds Better With You producer, Alan Braxe; and 8Stem, consisting of Bruce Pavitt (owner of the legendary Subpop Records) & Adam Farish. Further additions include the world-class team of engineers at Minirig from Bristol UK, who’ve set new standards in innovation and sound quality with their Bluetooth speaker technology, and, finally, Claudio Passavanti founder of Sunlightsquare Records and online mastering platform, Doctor Mix. These judges join returning heavyweight artists such as Roni Size, Utah Saints and Le Roux, plus Estelle Rubio, former winner Hugh Hardie, Chris Read from Who Sampled Who, Hospital Records artist Nu:Tone, drum & bass innovator, Talvin Singh and mastering engineer Scott Banks from Studio DMI.
Registration closes on Aug 31.
