Beatport and Microsoft Surface team up to launch the next Originals² Remix Competition featuring Italian DJ duo Giolì & Assia.
Beatport and Microsoft Surface bring groundbreaking innovation into live streaming technology and in December 2021, introduced Originals², a global campaign that connects and empowers musicians. Utilizing Beatport DJ’s Party Mode feature, the first Originals² campaign saw the world’s first remote b2b live stream set with Jamie Jones playing from Miami and Loco Dice from Berlin.
Earlier this month, they announced the next phase of Originals² – a global remix contest featuring Italian DJ duo, Giolì & Assia. Through this competition, Beatport and Microsoft Surface hope to find emerging DJs and producers from around the world. Entrants are tasked with remixing Giolì & Assia’s “Inside Your Head.”
Four winners will be chosen to perform a revolutionary four-person b2b set alongside Giolì & Assia in Ibiza. The set will be streamed on Beatport’s Twitch and YouTube channels. Each winner will also receive amazing prizes including a Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio, a one-year subscription to Beatport LINK, access to the International Music Summit in Ibiza, and more.
In addition to announcing this remix contest, Beatport recently launched the Beatport Mobile App to streamline playlist management and music search. The app is now available on both the Apple App Store and Google Play App Store. Get access to Beatport’s nine-million song catalog and the Beatport DJ web app.
The Remix Competition ends on March 6 at 11:59PM PT and is open to entrants age 18 and over. Check out the full list of prizes below, and to learn more and download the “Inside Your Head” stems, visit the official contest website.
