Loopcloud, Beatport, Beatsource, LabelRadar and Plugin Boutique announce the Global Producer Challenge

Covering a complete world of sound, producers can enter their original tracks to be in with a chance of winning a prize package worth $100,000. The competition covers six genres: Techno, House, Drum and Bass, Mainstage/EDM, Hip Hop & Trap, and Reggaeton.

Following the success of Beatport’s 2020 Producer Challenge, Loopcloud and Beatport have teamed up once again to announce the biggest music production challenge of 2021, in collaboration with Beatsource, LabelRadar and Plugin Boutique.

Before entering the competition, producers can download a Participant Pack to create an original track. Every entrant can take advantage of the free plugins, sounds, music courses and DJ services worth over $200. When your track is ready, upload it to LabelRadar before July 15th (23:59 PT) to be in with a chance of winning.

5 finalists from each genre will be considered for a full release and promotional campaign via prestigious labels Shogun Audio, Rekids, Def Jam Recordings, Nervous, DJcity Records, or Spinnin’ Records.
