With the success of Steve Aoki’s most release of “Bring You To Life (Transcend)”, a collaboration with Ultra Records/Ministry of Sound producer Rune RK featuring vocalist RAS, Dim Mak and Dancing Astronaut present the track’s official remix contest! If you are an aspiring producer of any genre, here’s your chance to turn this track into your own beast of a production. Whether it’s disco, drowned-out trap, drum and bass, high-energy electro, or a genre you just invented (Living-in-my-parent’s-basement-step), don’t be afraid to step outside the box. Push yourself and the envelopes (pun intended).
The competition ends on Wednesday, November 27th so head over to the official contest page, download the stems and dive right in. The grand prize winner will be announced on Wednesday, December 11th 2013 and have their remix released on Dim Mak Records.
Please Note: Getting your remix into the Top 20 can help get you noticed, but the Dim Mak A&R team will ultimately choose the winner (whether it’s at the top of the charts or not).
