Mark Knight & Toolroom Records have teamed up with Beatport, Future Music Magazine & Sonic Academy to launch a fresh and exciting 'co-production' competition - the first of its kind.
The idea of the competition is to give up and coming producers the chance to work with one of the industry's leading artists, launch their music career with the world's premier dance label and be financially rewarded for their work, receiving 50% of publishing and an equal share of sales royalties. Not a bad deal at all.
The mechanics of the competition are simple...
