Dustin Grieber by Jake Chudnow published on 2011/08/31 20:46:56 +0000 Groups for track Stussy Make Beats Contest The Stussy Make Beats Contest is about the fun of modern music making. Whether you’re a beat-maker, rapper, DJ or listener, this contest combines the creative aspect of making music with the fan’s point of view all tied together with some fresh tees and hats. The contest will be judged by Stussy, Low End Theory and Swedish synthesizer company, Teenage Engineering, who produced a new drum machine/synthesizer called the OP-1. In the music world today, it’s rare for a company to develop a piece of hardware, because most people use their computer to make beats. The OP-1 brings it back to the days of drum machines like the 808, when making beats meant banging them out on a machine. The Make Beats contest started on 8/31/11 and invited the public to upload their own original tracks (made on any machine/computer) via the http://soundcloud.com/groups/stussy-make-beats group page on Soundcloud. Make Beats closed on 9/14/11. Thanks to everyone who submitted. Please do not submit any more tracks. Check Stussy.com for more info (www.stussy.com/make-beats). The winner will be chosen by a committee from Stussy, Low End Theory and Teenage Engineering and announced soon. Contest rules include one entry per artist, who can use anything to make an ORIGINAL instrumental beat, at least 2 minutes in length. The winner will receive the release of their EP, paid travel to Los Angeles to perform at the Low End Theory event, a Teenage Engineering OP-1 portable synthesizer and a box of fresh Stussy gear. Upload/share your beat using the http://www.soundcloud.com/groups/stussy-make-beats/dropbox DropBox on Soundcloud and get everyone you know to “Favorite” your beat. Good luck, have fun and MAKE BEATS!!! Be sure to check the official contest page http://www.stussy.com/features/make-beats regularly for updates and information.
