Prism Sound is once again sponsoring the B-Side Project, an innovative remix competition that provides a cross-genre platform to find emerging talent.

Now in its seventh consecutive year, the B-Side Project 2017 has officially opened registration and is encouraging musicians, singer-songwriters, bands and composers of all genres to enter at www.b-sideproject.org before 30th June. 50 original tracks will then be shortlisted and paired with registered electronic music producers from around the world, to remix these tracks before the 31st October deadline. The Awards ceremony will take place at Metropolis Studios in London on December 9th 2017.

“We are really delighted to once again support this great initiative,” says Prism Sound’s Sales and Marketing Director Graham Boswell. “The B-Side Project creates networks between musicians, producers and the wider industry, merging genres and providing real world opportunities to release their music, alongside additional platforms to amplify their careers.”

The winner of Overall Best Remix can expect a glittering array of prizes and opportunities, worth in excess of £15,000, including, a Lyra Pro Audio Interface (also awarded to the musician / band who entered the original track), acoustic panels from GIK Acoustics, mic and headphones from Shure, custom-made ear protection from ACS, Seaboard Rise25 from ROLI and more! Individual awards can be won plus the chance to gain record releases – a huge opportunity for both original artists and remix producers.

The winning producer will be invited to watch their track being mastered at Metropolis Studios where artists such as The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Paul Weller, The Who and Amy Winehouse have all recorded. Each of the original and remix tracks in the top 10 will be mastered at Metropolis and featured on an album to be digitally released on B-Side Recordings (distributed by Republic of Music), in early 2018.

Last year’s B-Side Project saw 400 entrants from over 40 countries take part in a competition of the highest standards. In 2017 expect even more entries and the bar to be raised yet further, with the winner revealed at an awards event at Metropolis Studios in London in December. This event will also be streamed live on the internet offering wider exposure for the winner.

With the help of industry sponsors and partners, this year including Prism Sound, WhoSampled, 8Stem, Minirigs, Shure and more, B-Side Project has helped numerous producers and artists since its start in 2009. 2014 winner Hugh Hardie is now signed to Hospital Records and continues to enjoy a successful career. He joins the judging panel again this year.

The judging panel is an indicator of the high regard in which B-Side Project is held within the industry. Last year’s judges are returning, including Roni Size, Utah Saints, Hugh Hardie, Matt Schwartz, Cut La Roc, Nu:Tone, Estelle Rubio, Talvin Singh, and Grammy Award winners La Roux, plus mastering virtuoso, Luca Protelesi. In addition to this wealth of experience, also joining the panel for 2017 are chart-topping Clean Bandit, grime and hiphop producer S-X, Dr Mix AKA Claudio Passavanti, as well as Subpop founder Bruce Pavitt with his 8Stem co-owner Adam Farish.

For any artist trying to get a foothold in a highly competitive industry, B-Side Project offers a rare opportunity; an established global contest offering a widely-promoted platform for new music, access to industry professionals, potential publishing and recording deals, a huge prize package and the chance to create an invaluable network of contacts. B-Side Project helps emerging music talent build careers.
