Attention producers, please email all submissions to coalminerecords@gmail.com no later than Monday, July 19th. Only one submission per producer will be accepted. The files for the remix contest include an MP3 file of the original version of “Destiny”, (produced by Illmind) and a WAV file of the acapella. All acapella files are zero pointed and should synchronize properly with any digital audio workstation. Music should be in an MP3 format and should default to any iTunes media player. The original version of “Destiny” is approximately 86 Beats Per Minute. The BPM of your remix may be altered from the original version of the song. Files should be labeled accordingly with song title first, followed by the producer’s name and remix in parenthesis, ie: Destiny (Joe Smith Remix).mp3. *Due to the high volume of submissions, it becomes very difficult to cross reference submissions with their corresponding email addresses and therefore it is critical to include your email address in the comment field of the iTunes info panel.

Please include a few sentences about yourself and your production background. Good luck!
