SASHA HUNTS FOR THE NEXT BIG THING...
There are few dance music figures that inspire as much devotion among clubbers and producers alike than UK stalwart Sasha, so how incredible would it be for the big man himself to take you under his wing?
That’s just what’s on offer with Sasha’s Search For The Next Big Producer Star, an initiative recently launched with Burn Studios to find new production talent. Entrants are invited to download and remix Sasha’s recent release, Cut Me Down, and submit a finished copy by July 10th to be eligible. From that pool Sasha will select a fortunate 14 budding producers to travel to Ibiza to take part in a ‘production bootcamp’ with Sasha, then going on to pick one big winner.
“I’m delighted to be involved in the burn studios Next Producer Star project and nurture the next generation of electronic producers,” Sasha said in a press release. “I am looking for music makers who have the ability to create something entirely new and fresh-sounding, good luck to you all!”
As well taking part in that incredible bootcamp with Sasha and some unannounced friends in Ibiza the overall winner will also get the honour of working with Sasha in New York on his new album.
So is the ‘Next Producer Star’ reading this article on dirtysmart.com? We certainly hope so!
To be in with the chance of winning this money-can’t-buy opportunity entrants must remix this year’s IMS anthem ‘Cut Me Down’, a track created by Sasha. Entries must be uploaded to the cloud before 10th July (12am CET) when fourteen remixes will be hand selected by Sasha. The winning producers will be flown to the Burn Studios Hacienda in Ibiza, a state of the art equipped villa where Burn Studios will relocate for the summer. They will then take part in a 5-day intensive production bootcamp from 26th July to 30th July developed by SAE Institute, which includes mentoring sessions and master classes from some of the biggest names in the industry. Throughout this time winners will share their remixes online and get the public voting for their favourite. Then, at the end of the Hacienda program, the student with the most overall votes and support for their remix will go on to be crowned winner and be awarded the incredible opportunity to collaborate with Sasha on his next release!
