Enter remix competitions to get your Logic Pro creative juices flowing ...
If you're looking for a way to curb writers block, or if you want the chance to get some exposure and win prizes, then getting stuck into Logic Pro and entering remix competitions could be right up your street. It's also a good way for beginners and veterans alike to try new techniques in Logic Pro and gain experience finishing tracks to deadlines.
The benefits of doing this have some quite big success stories. In 2003 an French Production Duo called Justice entered a remix competition, submitting a track created for a Paris College radio station. That track was a remix of Simians "Never Be Alone" and resulted in the duo getting signed to the 'Ed Banger' label. The remix was released as "We Are Your Friends" and by 2006 became a floor filler, elevating Justice's popularity and leading to the production and release of their debut album in 2007.
There are plenty of competitions to enter and the prizes vary a great deal from tickets to festivals to real cash prizes, not forgetting the exposure that winners gain through getting released. Below are a few examples of current competitions. To enter the contests, simply click on the images and follow the links.
