What's good everyone?!
We're excited to be back with SKIO’s first Hip Hop OG Song Contest of 2020! You guys have killed it with your submissions in the past, which is why we're stoked to kick off the decade with a BANG!
For this contest, the SKIO A&R team is listening for talented producers that know how to lay out catchy Hip Hop vocals over a raw punchy beat. So whether you’re a rapper or know a homie, be sure your original hip hop tune has catchy vocal hooks, bars, and toplines.
*Your submission MUST HAVE vocals !!!*
Get inspired from artists like: Post malone, Lil Nas X, Roddie Rich, Metro Boomin, Lil Uzi Vert, DaBaby, and Cardi B
You know we got you covered on some sick gear so submit your original hip hop banger by April 13th for a chance to win! First place will receive a copy of DJ Swivel’s BEAST of a Plugin, “The Sauce”, Sonarworks Reference 4, a 1 year Slate Digital ‘All Access Pass’. On top of all that, we are also throwing in a 1-on-1 mentor call with a SKIO A&R, a 1 year SKIO Pro membership, and more!
Get creative as every single submission is heard by our team of A&R’s, while the grand prize winner will be selected by our guest judge, ARIA!
*Be sure your submission is originally created by you, and is not a remixed version of an existing track! *
Show some <3 for our contest sponsors:
Want access to world-class analog-modeled plugins, microphones, interfaces and education from Slate Digital. We've partnered with this awesome company to offer you prizes in these contests, but feel free to check out their "All Access Pass" - it's a game changer!
Finally you can mix with confidence on your current setup. Sonarworks Reference 4 removes unwanted coloration from your speakers and headphones. With the Sonarworks SR (Studio Reference) sound, you can focus on music instead of worrying about the sound in the studio or on-the-go.
Searching for a powerful, all-in-one vocal processor? Look no further! We have teamed up with Grammy Award-Winning Engineer, Mixer, and Producer DJ Swivel. Swivel has created a cool new plugin called The Sauce. This powerhouse producer tool is one of the most exciting plugins we've ever seen. For example, instead of running multiple effects chains to get those epic vocals or thick sounds, you can now get it all done with just "The Sauce"!
We’re stoked to hear what you guys will cook up with your submissions! Good Luck! :)
