M-Audio has teamed with hip-hop pioneers Public Enemy and culture-defining art brand Obey to host a remix competition.
The Public Enemy Remix Contest challenges musicians to create an original remix of an a cappella version of the group’s track “Harder Than You Think,” from their current album How You Sell Soul to a Soulless People Who Sold Their Soul.
Chuck D and Johnny Juice of Public Enemy will judge entries uploaded to the M-Audio website, and the winner will receive a complete home studio setup from M-Audio.
The winning remix will also be released on 12-inch vinyl by Obey Records. Backed with an exclusive unreleased Public Enemy track, the vinyl release will feature unique artwork created by graphic artist Shepard Fairey. All profits from the vinyl sale will be donated to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
The contest will run until September 30, 2008, with the grand-prize winner announced in late October.
