To enter the contest, you have to combine at least 2 music genres in one song

This contest is for artists and music producers who can combine 2 ideas into one track.

For example: Flamenco + Trap? Rap + Classical?

In short: create your own genre. Be original.

If your track makes it to the Top 5 of all submissions, you’ll win incredible prizes worth at least $3000.

The grand prize winner takes home over $10,000 worth of music gear made by the best companies in the world.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
