After selecting the top submissions, the tracks will be posted online, and the global dance music community will vote and help choose the winning remix.

The grand prize winner will secure an official release on Atlantic Records, a music production prize package worth over $10,000, which includes Genelec 8341A Studio Monitors, social support from Tiësto, Beatport, and the other remix challenge partners.
