Artist, songwriter and actor, Dave East, has partnered with Tracklib, the world’s first and only record store for sampling, for their Beat Battle Competition. One producer will get a chance to win the opportunity to work on a track with Dave East live and in person in NYC. Here is an announcement video with Dave East calling for submissions.
Producers can create a sample using Tracklib’s extensive catalog of music samples and submit for a chance to impress Dave East who will be selecting the winning beat. The winning producer will be flown to NYC to work on the track live and in person with Dave East. Tracklib will cover the flight and accommodations to New York, from anywhere in the world. They’ll also receive standard writing credits and publishing on the song, sample clearance of the song they’ve sampled, and one-year standard subscription to Tracklib.
“Tracklib gives you the opportunity to use samples that maybe you didn’t think you could use or find,” said Dave East. “Samples you never found before. I think it’s a great database to explore your own visions and push your creativity to the next level.”
To compete, creators must sample any song or multitrack on Tracklib and submit their beat by the end of the day Sunday, January 23, 2022 (all timezones included) through this link.
The winner of the beat battle will be announced on all Tracklib socials, in the Tracklib newsletter, and on the Tracklib blog page in March, 2022. East will shout-out two runners-up on all socials, who will also receive a one-year subscription to Tracklib.
