ILL.GATES X STEPHAN JACOBS ANNOUNCE OPEN CALL FOR EPIC ‘FLYING’ REMIX CONTEST
April 17, 2017 – Following the widely-successful release of his full-length studio album Terminally iLL earlier this spring, San Francisco-based producer ill.Gates has partnered with fellow pioneer of the West Coast Bass Movement Stephan Jacobs, and production services website ProducerDJ to invite rising producers to enter the most epic contest of 2017 offering up more than $16,000 in prizes! From now until June 12, 2017, aspiring remix maestros from across the globe can submit their take on ill.Gates’ and Stephan Jacobs’ massive track ‘Flying’ featuring Jackie Rain with winners announced June 23.
Described as a beautifully contrasting dark yet uplifting tune, the original ‘Flying’ blends future bass and glitch hop into a catch, sub-flexing bass-heavy summer anthem offering up an intricate melody for ill.Gates Remix Contest participants to reimagine. Amateur DJs and producers from all genres and styles are encouraged to flex their remix skills and submit their version of ‘Flying’ to SKIO Music where the top three tracks will be selected by ill.Gates alongside special guest judges, and released via brand new label Producer DoJo. Additional prizes include professional audio plugins, hardware controllers, music production tools + courses, and exclusive opportunities to collaborate with ill.Gates and his vast network of musical geniuses, courtesy of sponsors ProducerDJ, Plugin Alliance, SUBPAC, Sesh, Sugar Bytes, Dave Smith Instruments, Ableton, KJ Sawka, Nunich, Mr.Bill, Warp Academy, Tom Cosm, Keith McMillen Instruments (KMI), Maschine Tutorials, iZotope, and LANDR. See grand prize details below!
Looking to learn from the best before entering the contest? DJs and producers of all skill levels can learn the iLL Methodology behind remixing from ill.Gates’ free video course available now via ProducerDJ. The course reveals five simple yet extraordinary ways to unblock your creativity and to help producers finish songs as quickly and effectively as possible. Deemed “life-changing” and “incredible” by users, iLL Methodology is an essential learning tool for mastering beats.
ill.Gates’ first, full-length studio album since 2011, Terminally iLL is part of a series of airport-themed albums by ill.Gates. Set to release later this summer, second in the series is album Departures, which will feature left field, experimental, and out of character tracks inspired by festivals like Shambhala and Burning Man. On the horizon for ill.Gates is a whirlwind year, with marquee performances scheduled at Bassnectar’s Atlantic City Event, California’s Lightning in a Bottle festival plus stops throughout many U.S. cities — check out his upcoming tour schedule below.
