Matisyahu is no stranger to change. The formerly devout Hasidic reggae singer recently ditched his yarmulke and took off 10 years of beard growth in one fell Supercuts swoop, so a musical change in direction naturally followed. Today he’s upped the ante by offering the stems of four of the tracks on his Spark Seeker album exclusively on Beatport for a remix contest hosted on Indaba Music. To make your production session even more interesting, we’ve hand-picked four special Beatport Sounds packs to help you create the next contest-winning Matisyahu remix. So grab Dirty Funk-Step, a Heavy Complex Electro bundle, some Anthemic Electro sounds, and Samplestar’s Sylenth1 Ultimate Producer Essentials 3 to beef up your studio arsenal as you remix “Searchin’,” “I Believe In You,” “Fire of Freedom,” and “Tel Aviv’n.”
The contest’s grand-prize winners will meet Matisyahu, receive plug-ins from iZotope, and have their remixes officially released on Beatport, so make sure to enter by September 12 to be eligible.
