Dig Out Your Soul Producer Competition 2010

Defected has launched the Producer Competition 2010, a competition in partnership with Traxsource , Ableton and Loopmasters.

Last year’s competition generated a huge amount of interest from the dance community, clocking up 1,500 entries with close to 20,000 people registering on the site to rate and comment on the tracks. The standard of tracks was of the highest order, but eventually 19 year old Dutch producer Robacco Bossa’s track ‘Black Bird’ was selected as the winner and released on Defected Records. This time around Defected have teamed up with download hub Traxsource, top sample resource Loopmasters and leading production software company Ableton to bring you another chance to hit the big time.

The rules of the competition remain the same; upload your tracks to the site where they’ll be rated and commented on. Phase II of the competition sees the Defected A&R team pick their favourite 10 tracks, which are then voted on by the public.

Voters Prizes

  • 1ST PRIZE: Track released on Defected or partner label, Copy of Ableton Suite 8, Loopmasters sample packs worth over £1k, $200 of credit on Traxsource.
  • 2ND PRIZE: Copy of Ableton Live 8, 5 Loopmasters sample packs of your choice, $100 of credit on Traxsource.
  • 3RD PRIZE: Copy of Ableton Intro, 5 Loopmasters sample packs of your choice, $50 of credit on Traxsource.

Everyone who registers on the site to rate, vote for and comment on the tracks is entered into a competition to win a 160G ipod. Plus all those who register will automatically receive a 30% off voucher to spend on anything they like in Defected’s D-Store.
