Silk Digital Records Presents "Both" Remix Contest
Remix Blood Groove & Kikis vs. LTN's "Both" for a chance to win a variety of prizes + inclusion on a forthcoming Silk Digital single!
Sponsored by: Tek'it Audio, Sonalksis, One Small Clue.
In anticipation of Blood Groove & Kikis's forthcoming "Wonderland" artist album, arriving March 25, 2014, on Silk Digital, Silk Music Publishing announces its "Both" remix competition. Veteran and aspiring producers alike will have the chance to remix Blood Groove & Kikis vs. LTN's "Both" and have their remixes released on Silk Digital, Silk's parent label. With its 80th single release arriving in Spring, Silk Digital has released tracks by many of the leading artists in progressive over the past 6 years and has received radio support on the industry's top radio shows, such as: "Group Therapy," "International Departures," "Solaris International," "Cycles Radio," and "Jaytech Music".
Silk Digital Records will be selecting three winners for a special "Both" remixes release on the imprint later this year. We encourage participants to remix in the specific genres of progressive house and progressive breaks — the standard niche of Silk Digital — but we will also consider exceptional entries in trance, deep house, and chillout.
There will be three key phases of the competition:
1. February 15th - March 31st, 2014 - Download phase. Download the remix parts, and get remixing.
2. February 28th - March 31th, 2014 - Upload/Submission phase. Send your remix by link to firstname.lastname@example.org. The remix parts will still be available to download during this phase.
3. March 31st - April 6th, 2014 - Deliberation phase. Silk management chooses the top remixes.
After a deliberation phase, the winners will be announced on April 7th, 2014, and three winning remixes will be released on Silk Digital Records soon thereafter.
Silk Digital Records wishes all participants the best of luck!
1. Download the remix parts of Blood Groove & Kikis vs. LTN's "Both".
