atcq-mm-remix

Just two more weeks left of our Midnight Mauraders Remix Contest sponsored by iStandard Producers, The Certified Fresh Jumpoff, and DJ Pain1. There’s still 4 hours left to get your remix in for Week 11, after which the judges will listen to the submissions and announce the winner next Thursday on The Certified Fresh Jumpoff Radio Show. Congratulations once again to JML Beatz who won Week 11 with his remix to “The Chase, Part II”. Let’s go ahead and get into this week.  All rules are reprinted below. If you’ve already read them, just download the sample below and upload your beat when finished! About the Contest: Each week, for the course of 14 weeks, we will provide you with an original sample used to create each track from the album. You will take that song and your skills, and sample it into a brand new creation… a remix, if you will. In some of our previous contests, we have provided you with the acapella to use in your remix. This project will not be using the acapellas from Midnight Marauders. Instead, after we complete the 15 weeks of our beat contest, we will select some of your favorite emcees to rock over your beats (similar to how we did the Mama Said Knock You Out project). The finished project will be released by November, just in time for the album’s 20th anniversary! Here’s how the contest will work… for 14 weeks, we will hold a weekly contest… 14 weeks/14 remixes. Each Friday we will provide the sample to be flipped for the week. You will have one week ... Read More »
