We want to hear your original EDM & Dance song! The SKIO A&R team is kicking off a brand new contest series to find and reward creators who are making music that deserves to be heard.

Whether it's an old track you finished a while back or a fresh new project, submit your original EDM / Dance song by April 25th for a chance to win prizes that will help you make more music and earn recognition for your skills.

The grand prize winner will receive a 1-on-1 session with DJ Swivel, and we’re throwing in $150 to spend on studio time, hiring vocalists and engineers, or to help with your next recording project. First place also picks up a 1 year subscription to ‘Insight Reports’, so you can get personalized feedback and data for every song you submit to our contests, as well as a LANDR Pro account and more!

Accepted genres and Sub Genres include: Future Bass, Dubstep, House, Trap, Electro and all kinds of hybrids.

For example, here are some artists you can reference: Zedd, Clean Bandit, The Chainsmokers, DJ Snake, Martin Garrix, Marshmello, Boombox Cartel, Deadmau5, Alan Walker, Dua Lipa, Flume, and Illenium.

On SKIO every single submission gets heard by our A&R’s, but don’t hold anything back because winners will be selected by our guest judge, multi-Grammy winning producer and engineer DJ Swivel.

*Be sure your submission is originally created by you, and is not a remixed version of an existing track!*
