B-SIDE PROJECT LAUNCHES 2016 ANNUAL GLOBAL REMIX CONTEST TO FIND EMERGING MUSIC TALENT
Now in its sixth year, the respected competition continues to provide a cross-genre platform for new artists with a heavyweight industry judging panel...
Registration for B-Side Project 2016 is officially open, marking the sixth consecutive year of the renowned, global remix contest. Musicians, singer-songwriters, bands and composers of all genres are invited to enter their original tracks at www.b-sideproject.org before registration closes on 13th September. Artists are then paired with electronic music producers from around the world, to remix these tracks before the 30th October deadline. The B-Side Project, sponsored by Prism Sound for a second year, creates networks between musicians, producers and the wider industry, merging genres and providing real world opportunities to release their music, alongside additional platforms to amplify their careers.
The winner of 'overall best remix' can expect a glittering array of prizes and opportunities, worth over £15,000, including, a Lyra Pro Audio Interface (also awarded to the musician / band who entered the original track), a pair of Amphion One15 Studio Monitors, Studio Package One acoustic panels from GIK Acoustics, mic and headphones from Audio Technica, a Seaboard Rise from Roli, custom-made ear protection from ACS, software from IK Multimedia and more! Individual awards can be won plus the chance to gain a publishing contract and record releases - a huge opportunity for both original artists and remix producers.
The winning producer will be invited to watch their track being mastered at Metropolis Studios in London, where artists such as The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Paul Weller, The Who 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 (distributed by Republic of Music), in early 2017.
Last year's B-Side Project saw 160 entrants from 18 countries take part in a competition of the highest standards. In 2016 expect even more entries and the bar to be raised yet further, with the winner revealed at an awards event at Metropolis Studios in London on 1st December. This event will also be streamed live on the internet offering wider exposure for the winner.
With the help of industry sponsors and partners, this year including Prism Sound, Amphion (a new sponsor for 2016), Metropolis, PRS and more, B-Side Project has helped numerous producers and artists since its start in 2009. 2014 winner Hugh Hardie is now signed to Hospital Records and continues to enjoy a successful career. He joins the judging panel again this year.
The judging panel is an indicator of the high regard in which B-Side Project is held within the industry. Last year's judges are all returning, including Roni Size, Utah Saints, Krystal Roxx, Hugh Hardie, Matt Schwartz, Glen Nicholls (Future Funk Squad), Cut La Roc and Estelle Rubio. In addition to this wealth of experience, also joinging the panel are Grammy Award winners, La Roux, Hospital Records artist, Nu:Tone, Studio DMI's mixing and mastering virtuoso, Luca Protelesi plus colleague Scott Banks, Godfather of house, Marshall Jefferson, drum & bass innovator, Talvin Singh and founding member and bassist of Killing Joke, Martin Glover a.k.a 'Youth'.
For any artist trying to get a foothold in a highly competitive industry, B-Side Project offers a rare opportunity; an established global contest offering a widely promoted platform for new music, access to industry professionals, potential publishing and recording deals, a huge prize package and the chance to create an invaluable network of contacts. B-Side Project helps emerging music talent build careers.
