Details

We teamed up with two artists in the SKIO Pro Community, Mr. Black and WAO, to host a remix contest for their latest collab “Funk Yourself”. We’re also extremely happy to announce a partnership with Push The Volume Records and one of the world’s leading EDM blogs, We Rave You. What does this mean for you? Contest entrants will have a chance to be noticed by the label, and the winning remix will be promoted to over half a million readers on We Rave You!

“Funk Yourself” has already been supported by top acts such as Hardwell, Fedde Le Grand, The Chainsmokers, FTampa, Michael Woods and more, reaching #18 on Beatport’s Electro House Chart in just the first week after release. With high octane energy, heavy synths and a driving beat, Mr. Black and WAO layered vocal snippets into this track to fuse the club-setting with deep house sounds and distinct big-room elements.

Brazilian producer WAO collaborated with Tel-Aviv based Mr. Black after connecting on SKIO Music, and now they’ve decided to complete the circle and put the track up on our platform for you all to have some fun! So grab the stems and go “funking” crazy! Show these SKIO Pro’s and our new partners your style and you could win an exclusive premiere of your remix on the We Rave You blog to over 500,000 readers, support from both Mr. Black and WAO to over 200,000 fans, and of course a chance to pick up some fresh SKIO swag!
