The Certified Fresh Jumpoff Present: Midnight Marauders Remix Competition

Courtesy Kevin Nottingham.

If you’ve been with KevinNottingham.com for a while, you may remember one of our niches from 2008 – 2010 was our weekly remix competitions. Back then we held contests for producers to remix classic albums such as Illmatic, The Blueprint, and Mama Said Knock You Out. With our remix competitions and sample compilations, we prided ourselves in being a producer’s community… and we still do. Which is why we’re bringing back our weekly remix competition for the 20th anniversary release of A Tribe Called Quest’s Midnight Marauders! Only this time, we’re doing it better. We’ve teamed up with iStandard Producers, The Certified Fresh Jumpoff, and producer extraordinaire DJ Pain1 to make this contest our best one yet.

Each week, for the next 14 weeks, we will provide you with an original sample used to create each track from the album. You will take that song and your skills, and sample it into a brand new creation… a remix, if you will. In some of our previous contests, we have provided you with the acapella to use in your remix. This project will not be using the acapellas from Midnight Marauders. Instead, after we complete the 14 weeks of our beat contest, we will select some of your favorite emcees to rock over your beats (similar to how we did the Mama Said Knock You Out project). The finished project will be released by November, just in time for the album’s 20th anniversary!

PRIZES: In addition to being included on our 20th Anniversary Tribute Album to Midnight Marauders, the winner for each week will also receive a free account and teaser kit at iStandardProducers.com(courtesy of iStandard Producers).
