One lucky winner will hear their
music played at Space Ibiza, at DJmag’s party on the
5th June – as part of a prize offering to bedroom
producers in a competition hosted by Clickproduce,
your one stop online shop for loops, samples and
even free tutorial videos courtesy of leading DJ and
production school Point Blank.
As well as DJmag supplying
flights and accommodation for the winner and a
friend, Novation and Ableton are providing the
ultimate set-up to remix or create your own music.
Prizes will total £1000 worth of music-making
equipment including Ableton Suite 8 -
ground-breaking software used by the likes of Sasha,
Daft Punk, Coldcut and more - Novation's Launchpad
Ableton controller, a Novation 25SL MkII
professional keyboard controller and a Novation Nio
2/4 audio interface. You will also receive a £100
Clickproduce voucher, and your winning entry will be
included on an upcoming CD Pool promo compilation.
So what do you need to do? Simply go to Clickproduce,
register, and download a special sample pack donated
by top production company Prime Loops. This contains
an array of the highest quality beats, bass, synth/keys
files, loops and one-shots. They are all royalty
free so you can use them in your production, but you
may just want to take inspiration from them and
create your own piece from scratch. There is one
'signature sound' which is the only compulsory part
you will need to use - you can warp, effect and
twist this sound as you wish, though it must be
audible as a theme in some form.
Feel free to add your own sounds, loops and presets,
though don’t include uncleared samples of recorded
works. Once you’re finished, simply upload the track
to Clickproduce’s Soundcloud Dropbox.
"We want producers to create what they believe will
be perfect for the Ibiza crowd this summer," says
Robin Jenkins, manager of Clickproduce. "There are
no restrictions on genre, though as a general rule
of thumb picture yourself on the terrace at Space
listening to your track - because that's exactly
what you'll be doing if you win the competition."
