I saw this yesterday, and was like... wow.
I would not be the one to usually post Beyoncé news, but when it's this nice - you bet. Looks as though Sony has set up a contest to remix a coming Beyoncé track, End Of Time. Ok. The contest was launched just days ago Feb 8th 2012, and is running right until March 8th 2012. Ok. There are no guide lines for the sound, essentially JUST submissions. Ok.
GRAND PRIZE iS $4000. OH-KAY. LOL.
No seriously, I'm not mad at these competitions. Though they will likely bring on a massive flood of submissions, I like to hear interesting edits. New tempos, sounds, swing etc...
In any case, they have let go of the stems - 12 of them - for the producers to go nuts with. This should be interesting. Here's the original for cats to hear....
... and you can now get the stems in WAV here. All the info is on the actual contest page, where you're asked to upload your submissions, and pls read the rules/fine print. Chances are, they may ask for your next kid to keep hers company. ;). But you'll have $4k to show for it. LOL.
You have something fresh?? Let me know. I'd love to hear something in a new tempo range or entirely diff.
