GDDemos460

​We’re stoked to announce GDD Demos, a feature dedicated to presenting original music from new and unexposed producers.

We know that getting noticed on the blogosphere is incredibly challenging for any musician new to the scene. Trust us, we get hundreds of promo mails a day from artists and label who are already established.

We can’t promise we’ll feature your music, however it won’t be a crapshoot either. We will go through every submission and pick the best ones and feature them on our SoundCloud and in a weekly post every Friday afternoon (starting next week).

Please note: This is only for serious applicants. We don’t want your WIPs or bootlegs, we want your best original tracks.

To submit, head over to our  submissions page and follow the on-screen directions.

Best of luck!

MaincourseBOTRemixFinal

When we teamed up with Main Course, iZotope, and ToneDen to announce a remix competition for our friend BOT’s track “Monky Man,” we weren’t expecting to receive over 120 submissions.

We’re excited to announce that we were able to pick three winners for the competition, with the grand prize winner receiving iZotope’s Ozone 6, an official release on Main Course’s “The Remixes Vol 05″ as promised, and a prize pack from the Main Course store.

The two runners up will be featured in the upcoming Main Course Holiday Pack, however all finalists will receive free upgrades ToneDen premium account for life.

The grand prize winner is…

Brisbane-based musician Low Parse! We were captivated by his energetic rendition of the track and have had it on repeat since our first listen.

Our two runners up include NiQW

And DOM DIAS.

The rest of the finalists can be heard in this set:
