Now he aims to add one more achievement to the list….World Record Breaker for the most producers involved in one track.
“Two 125 BPM samples will be posted online and producers are being asked to make 4 bars of music around them. Hakan Lidbo will then edit all pieces together into a new and innovative track for the WeAreWoodville imprint.
At least one of the two elements must be clean (not equalized or processed) and mixed at zero dB.
The competition will be posted up on the websites: WeAreWoodville’s SoundCloud, RemixComps, Beatport and Tracks and Fields; plus details will be floating around an aray blogs, social Networks, forums and online hang outs.
Read an interview in Soundzlimited with Hakan.
Producers are asked to send their real name, artist name and their publishing representation (if any) along with the four bars of audio in WAV or Aiff formats only.
