News has been reaching us of some really exciting contests going on in the Cloud at the moment. It’s great to see lots of users being creative with their SoundCloud players and dropboxes. And for budding producers and SoundCloud users it means the chance to win some fantastic prizes!
Get Physical have a fantastic new concept album due out on 6th February called Final Song #01. It might sound a bit morbid but the album is a collection of records that the artists would like to be played at their funeral or hear before they die: the track that is so important to them it should be played for eternity. And they’re letting SoundCloud users join in the fun. Have you produced a song that you’d like to hear before you die? If so, upload it to the Final Song dropbox and if your track is selected you’ll win some great prizes!
Roll Records have really gone all out and are offering the chance to win a 20” iMac by remixing Reead. Who doesn’t want to win a 20” iMac? Make sure you check out this competition that Roll Records is running in association with DJDownload. Closing date for entries to their dropbox is 15th February.
The Dandy Warhols are also making use of SoundCloud for their remix competition. We only just found out about this one so there’s not much time left to enter a remix. But check out all the stems and more information on their SoundCloud page or get them right here:
Compost are offering you the chance to rework ‘Aurevoir’ a track taken from Alif Tree’s second album ‘Clockwork’ available spring 2009. Prizes include a full release of the remix on Compost Records, a free SoundCloud Pro account and a delightfully put together care-package with 50 vinyls or CD’s picked out from the Compost vaults. The deadline for remix submissions is Sunday 15th March, so get over to Compost’s page and get busy!
If you’re using SoundCloud in a really interesting way then we’d love to hear about it.
