Last week we mentioned Recyourself, a Dutch music platform aimed at giving promising producers proper recognition. Now D-Edge has come out the wood works with a sort-like concept. Producers can send in their mix and the winner gets a range of prizes, one of which is a gig at the legendary club.
The special competition will run from March to June in the run up to the World Cup. It requires DJs from all over the world – of any standing, age, background, level of fame and skill – to upload their best mix to the D-Edge Mixcloud page. Producers are also invited to upload their finest unreleased productions to the D-Edge Dropbox, after which the club’s founder, resident and driving force Renato Ratier will pick his top ten entries as a main curator of the competition.
The ten finalists will then canvas for votes on the internet and the most supported 3 will get to go to the final. From there Renato Ratier will pick his overall winner. The lucky winners will get a 4 day trip to Brazil in August including flights, hotel, dinner, 500 euros and a gig at D-Edge.
To enter the competition the subscriber must first like the curators page. Then upload your mix on Mixcloud. Title the mix ‘D Edge 2014 World Cup Competition‘ and add your tracklist and use the cover art provided here.
