Producer Loops / Rekkerd DNB Competition

Goldie at Red Zone, Eindhoven by Studiodotcom @ Flickr (Jeroen van der Wielen)

I am delighted to announce a new rekkerd.org contest. This time around it’s all about Drum & Bass, probably my all time favorite music genre.

After discovering this type of music in the early 90’s it has been the one genre that has consistently kept my interest over the years. Paradox, Roni Size, Dom & Roland, Ed Rush, Technical Itch, Source Direct, Photek, Dillinja, Omni Trio, Breakage, Total Science… just to name a few of my favorites.

For this contest Producer Loops has compiled an exclusive sample pack featuring selected sounds from its Drum & Bass Tip Trixxx Vol 1 & 2, and Liquid Drum & Bass Vol 1 & 2 sample libraries.

Download the contest sample pack and create a track using one or more of the 50 loops and single shot sounds provided, and submit it before the deadline; 9 July, 2010, 11.59pm CET.

DNB Competition Sample Pack Downloads: 6281 times

Out of all the entries I will personally select the first prize winner who will receive all four Producer Loops sample libraries from the sample pack. Contestants will vote for 2nd and 3rd prize winners, who will each receive their choice of one of these drum & bass sample packs.

Contest rules

  • Download the “Producer Loops/Rekkerd DNB Competition Pack” and create a song using one or more (but at least one) of the samples from the pack. Maximum song duration is 7 minutes, one entry per contestant allowed.
  • You may process/manipulate the sample(s) from the sample pack in any way you like, be creative.
  • Additional sound sources (e.g. samples, virtual instruments) are allowed as long as they do not violate any laws or third party rights.

I was deep into writing a track when I realized that I couldn’t find any legalese on who retains the rights to submitted songs. I’d assumed we retain the rights to our work but, since the Producer Loops website doesn’t even have a mention of this contest, I thought it best to ask…and just happen to get it in writing…Total coincidence…

I love DnB. Should be a fun contest.

In the (somewhat unlikely) combination that you don’t win the contest, and then start selling that track, then just buy the sample pack or try to recreate the samples for the commercial version. Then you’ll be in the clear I think.

Have fun!

Rekkerd, I just had to write you this. After I posted my little entree,I listened to what’s on the site and well,once again my mind has been blew by what’s out there. “Oh I’m sorry.Did I break your concentration?” Yes you did…I didn’t see that comin’. ALL OF YOU…WHERE DO YOU GET THIS STUFF??!! I started off softly with “Euphonic”,then “Sandcastle” kicked me in the ass.”Take You” hit me in the gut and “The Worst That Could Have Been” just beat me all about the head !! After those three everybody else was just lightweight. I’m not saying they weren’t… Read more »

Sorry Jamie,didn’t mean to trash you or anyone else..if it makes you feel any better wait till you hear my piece,it’s fluff..by the by,I stopped smoking that stuff long time ago.
P.S. “Code Red” & “Loose Change” are not …lightweight. Those were great!

My track isn’t great and as a matter of fact isn’t that good too but, I don’t believe it is “lightheaded” .. I’m just out of shape with my music orientation, that’s all! Didn’t quite nailed that dnb character yet (not that I’m trying to do something that’s been done already) but something that I can put my finger on! … and you guys passing greenish clouds around, you beeter stop doing that so often .. if you know what’s good for your orientation… ;) …. I’m just sayin’! And as an answer to Dion’s “ALL OF YOU…WHERE DO YOU… Read more »
