Every single submission will be heard by our team of A&R’s, so give it your all because the grand prize winner will be selected by our guest judge, Cyrus Reynolds.

*Submissions without any vocals will not be scored lower than those that do. Be sure your submission is originally created by you, and is not a remixed version of an existing track!

Make sure to submit your original Cinematic Record in by Oct. 31st, for your chance to win some dope prizes! The grand prize winner has a chance to make moves for their career, winning a 1-on-1 mentor call with Cyrus Reynolds, and receive $150 dollars to spend on studio time, hiring vocalists, mix engineers, or your recording project.

Our guest judge, Cyrus Reynolds , Los Angeles-based Artist and Producer Cyrus Reynolds leans heavily towards the cinematic and dramatic. A classically trained composer (Royal Academy of Music) turned electronic sound designer (Chance the Rapper, Kanye, Justin Timberlake), he draws his own sound from familiar textures and twists them into new sonic landscapes, finally holding them together by threads of interwoven narratives and personal lyrics.
