There’s no shortage of DJ and production contests out there, but Beatport’s Beats In School is the one that keeps on giving. Every two months, a new lucky winner gets a one-of-a-kind package of tuition, mentoring, and DJ/production gear from the top players in the industry – all in conjunction with elite record labels including Hospital Records and Anjunabeats.
The prize includes a full year’s scholarship with one of Beatport’s top labels, with Yousef’s worldrenowned Circus imprint the first to open for entries. Each winner will receive invaluable one-to-one guidance and may get the chance to land a DJ support or official release.
That’s not all though! Winners also get to choose a fresh piece of hardware from one of Beatport’s partner brands – including Native Instruments, Pioneer DJ, Roland and Novation – and receive hands-on guidance on how to get the most out of it. The Beats In School winner will also score an intensive production course from the highly respected Point Blank music school. Add in the offer of extensive support and coverage from Beatport and the competition’s partners – including Mixcloud, Point Blank and us here at FM – and it all begins to add up to a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
So how do you enter? Produce a track that fits the label's sound and feature it in a killer DJ mix. You'll then upload the mix to Mixcloud and promote it on social media to maximise your plays and progress to the next round.
