The Loop Loft has announced the Bring the Funk (and the Flutes) remix contest, a chance to win $1k in prizes from SoundCloud and The Loop Loft.
Speed things up, slow things down, change keys, change time signatures, add your own drums, guitar, bass, vocals, synths, even more flutes, harpsichords, kazoos… whatever it takes to make an awesome (and funky) track. The 12 Loop Loft loops provided in this contest are just a starting point to let your imagination run wild.
The only rule is that you must utilize one of the provided flute loops in your Remix. The flute loop(s) can be featured in the track or used subtly in the background. Regardless, you MUST include the flute. Beyond that, ANYTHING goes.
