You have been asking for it, so we responded!

The SKIO A&R team is looking for producers who think they stand out in producing anything Trance music! Although your submissions aren’t judged heavily on vocals, we love producers who try to take their songs as far as possible, so be sure to add some vocals that are going to get us hooked on your track or some sick sound design!

DISCLAIMER: *For this specific contest, we’re looking for ORIGINAL Trance songs. Your submission score is not weighted heavily on vocals.*

You can use these artists to get an idea of what we’re looking for: Above & Beyond, Armin van Buuren, Vini Vici, W&W, Aly & Fila, Dash Berlin, Gareth Emery, Ferry Corsten, Liquid Soul, and Cosmic Gate.

We’re so excited to hear what the SKIO community has to offer! Every single submission will be heard by our team of A&R’s, but give it your all because the grand prize winner will be selected by our guest judge, Armada Music!

*Be sure your submission is originally created by you, and is not a remixed version of an existing track! Please refrain from using any beats or instrumentals that may be subject to copyright material, user’s who are found violating any terms of copyright infringement will have their content removed from SKIO and will be flagged in future submissions.*

Give this contest your all and be sure to submit your song by September 26th! The grand prize winner will receive a mentor call with an Armada Music A&R, a LANDR Pro Account, plus a $150 recording budget to spend on hiring vocalists, mix engineers, recording studio time, and more! On top of all this, the winning submissions will be eligible to make money with their music through Instant Licensing on SKIO!
