Do you play the piano? Percussion? Do you sing four-part harmony in a barbershop quartet? Or are you adept at producing Electronic Music (i.e. techno tech-house, deep-house, or house music) on your computer using the latest software plugins? Whether it’s a piano riff, drum solo, vocal twist, or blistering EDM instrumental, YOU have the opportunity to build on CEVIN FISHER’s original a capella and achieve new heights. Creatively, the possibilities are endless, and we want to hear your take!
CEVIN FISHER is hailed as an influential American House music master who continues to produce a steady flow of releases and DJ sets via his label, Import Tracks. For the first time, this house music legend is releasing the original a cappella from “NYC THE PARTY CAPITAL” (Import Tracks) as a free download in this very special PRODUCTION CONTEST! Simply download the a capella HERE, use it to create your own track, and email your entry as an .mp3 file to [email protected] by 5:00pm Eastern Time on Monday, July 6th. We’re only accepting .mp3 attachments, so please don’t send any WeTransfer, SendSpace, Dropbox or other cloud-based download links.
We at The Electronic Current will help winnow down the total entries, and 4 nominees will be announced right here. Then, you’ll have until Monday, July 5th to choose the winner. Again, HERE is the link to the a capella download!
The chosen artist will have his/her track officially released on CEVIN FISHER’s Import Tracks record label and will receive 50% of the recording income (CEVIN FISHER receives the other 50%) of all track sales for the winning collaboration.
