-SoBE LaSH



Grand Prize Winner

First Place - Okii (Australia)

As a SKIO contest regular, we have had the pleasure of watching Okii’s sound develop over the past year. This track is an example of just how far this Aussie has come. Glitchy future bass synths combine with huge kick drum and bass hits to take the listener on an emotional journey through sound. Drop numero dos takes it up a notch with huge trap drums and a dirty saw that is sharp as a razor. Congrats, Okii - this is truly deserving of the first place finish!



Runner Ups

Second Place - Furtha (Canada)

Canadian producer, FURTHA definitely caught the judges’ attention with this chill trap track. The unique hybrid vibe fits perfectly with SoBE LaSH’s edgy vocals. Spot on sound design, plenty of variety in terms of instruments and a solid mastering job keeps the mix interesting and not too cluttered. Killer job, FURTHA.




Third Place - Boosin (Ukraine)

All the way from the Ukraine, BOOSIN came in strong with the super clean mix and a tech house vibe that won this remix a third place finish. We loved how the sharp saws contrasted against the higher and softer toned keys. The super clean drum programming takes up just the right amount of room in the mix, but the real icing on the cake was the sampled guitar hook and vocal chop. Big ups on taking third place in this contest.
