The grand prize includes a 1-on-1 session with DJ Swivel, and we’re including $150 to use on studio time, hiring vocalists and engineers, or towards your next recording project. First place will also win a 1 year subscription to ‘Insight Reports’, giving you personalized feedback and access to powerful data for every song you submit to our contests, as well as a LANDR Pro account and more!

Accepted genres and Sub Genres include: Indie Pop, 90’s Alternative, Late Night Indie Dance, Indie Rock, Folk Rock, Chillwave.

For example, here are some artists you can reference: Tame Impala, Cold War Kids, Chet Faker, Arcade Fire, Mumford and Sons, Gus Dapperton, Slenderbodies, Young The Giant, and RKCB.

All submissions will be heard by SKIO 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! *
