You may recall when early in the year, Beat Maker Go app developers Gismart joined forces with The Chainsmokers on an official remix contest. What music lovers came up with inspired them so much that they simply had to do another. This time around, they've partnered with Akai and Splice on a contest called #StreetMakerGo.
What sets this contest apart from the one that came before it is that this time, participants have Splice's #StreetMakerGo sound packs at their disposal. Collections of samples like "Chill Trap," "Classic Hip-Hop," "EDM," "LoFi Hop-Hop and "Trap" will give entrants the tools to craft highly addictive soundscapes on the fly.
More importantly, the #StreetMakerGo contest is meant to pay homage to the rich traditions of beatmaking while giving aspiring producers a hands-on opportunity to experience its cutting edge.
#StreetMakerGo contest entrants must record a video of a performance using the app's aforementioned sound packs in an outdoor setting. Then, they must upload it to Instagram. Expert judges from Splice and Akai will then choose the finalists and prize winners from the video submissions.
In order to be eligible, contestants must include the hashtag #StreetMakerGo in the caption for their upload. This is how the judges will find your video so make sure not to forget this part!
