    Check the prize before slaving away at this, more of a marketing stunt than talent scouting imo.

    If there was a Back to Basics remix album, then maybe it'd be a good idea to give it a go, but since it seems like there might not be judging by the prize, it's better to make one just for fun.

    Yep my thoughts.
    For an aspiring producer exposure on the Hospital Records site (maybe even the podcast) would be great

    I might have to check out the steams when I get home.... Even if not to enter, to just make a "bootleg" mix of it.

    Repeat the first note of the bass. Play a note on a vst of your liking. Play a note. Listen if its the same note. No? Pick another note.
    Or use a tuner or something like SPAN


    It's really note that hard to figure out bpm and key guys...

    I was a bit pissed that they decided to move the deadline forward a month as I'd planned to have a go during November while I had more time. Rules are rules and the deadline should have remained as December. I'm currently rushing to put together something by the end of the week and almost there.
