Attention all beat makers, old and young! Marco Polo is holding a contest and wants to see your best created beat, submitted by Jan. 11th. UPDATE The contest has ended, and the winner was @Kic_Beats. Congrats to him and to all who entered. Here are the details:
1: All entries must own Pad Thai Vol. 1. Your order # grants you entry. (You receive the order # when you buy it from www.marcopolobeats.com or The Drum Broker). Please do not enter if you don’t own Pad Thai. If you don’t own it, no problem, head over to www.marcopolobeats.com or The Drum Broker and cop it!
2: Make a beat using any sounds from my drum kit. Of course you can use your own loops, samples, whatever you want just make sure something from Pad Thai is used to construct the beat. I’d prefer it to be obvious but even one sound is fine.
3: Email your best beat to padthaibeats[at]gmail[dot]com (only 1 beat please.) Make sure you include your Pad Thai order # and all your info. The deadline for submissions is Sunday January 11th, 2015. I will pick the winner (the beat I think is the best) on Friday, January 16th 2015.
Simple, right? And wait until you hear the prize package:
1: Any drums & bass sounds from 2 of my productions not included in Pad Thai Vol. 1. Just tell me the name of the songs and the drums & bass sounds are yours.
2: I will personally email/submit the winning beat to any rapper you want and let them know you got a banger (within reason of course…y’all know who I work with so please don’t ask for Jay Z or Nas or Kendrick hahaha.)
3: 1 free digital download of any of any album in my catalog.
4: 30 minutes with me in the studio via Skype, phone or Messenger (not in person, sorry Mischa don’t like guests). You can play me beats and get feedback or ask any production questions you want while I smoke Newports. If you make hot shit I’m happy to help you get your beats to some MC’s. Rappers always need beats.
So get it cracking folks. Remember, submissions need to be in by Jan. 11th, winner will be chosen on Jan. 16th! Any questions about the contest, feel free to ask them in the c-section. Good luck!
