Fedde Le Grand is no stranger to rocking a dancefloor—whether its as a world-class DJ or top-notch producer, the man knows how to get the job done. Last month’s “Rockin’ N’ Rollin’” single is just the latest example of Le Grand’s many talents, a charging dancefloor tune topped off by slippery melodies and now being offered to the Play community in a brand-new remix contest. So turn in the winning submission and you’ll take home a slew of prizes, including a copy of Propellerhead’s Reason 7, Propellerhead’s Balance audio interface, a copy of our Sounds to Sample Elements sound pack, and have your remix officially released by Flamingo Recordings.
So upload your submission by June 17 to be considered for the contest. Of course, there’s a whole lot more going on at Play, so check it all out below.
Hardwell has remixed his way into Beatport’s #1 spot with his version of Krewella’s track “Alive.”
Tiesto has taken Beatport’s top spot yet again, this time with his new remix of Showtek and Noisecontrollers’ “Get Loose.”
We are extremely excited to announce that the one and only Roman Flügel will be gracing the Berlin decks on May 24 for Beatport Live. Flügel is a true icon in electronic music, releasing under many aliases in many different genres. From the banging electro of Alter Ego’s “Rocker” to the subtlest deep house of “Song With Blue,” he has constantly been praised for his flawless production and style.
Tomorrow, May 17, Beatport Live is happy to present Presha, who’ll be DJing from our Berlin offices. One look at the Samurai Music/Samurai Red Seal discographies and you know label head Presha knows his drum & bass. From ASC’s incredible experiments to the classic stylings of Calibre, the labels have been a go-to for quality within the scene since their inception. It’s no surprise then that Presha is a fantastic DJ himself, having toured across New Zealand, Australia, Europe, Japan, and America, wowing crowds as he goes.
** UPDATED: Contest entry is now closed. Thanks for your submissions.
