Time to announce the winner of our second Flash Beat Contest: Hood Runnas Remix! This contest gave music producers the task of remixing our FREE sample from Hood Runnas Hip Hop Loop Sets into a new unique beat in any style. This was a great contest! The contestants stepped up to the challenge and created so many Bangaz! We were blown away at how great so many of these tracks were… in fact… we HIGHLY recommend that you check out all 20 entries below on our soundcloud page ASAP. You will see what we mean.
This Beat Contest lasted 3 days and we had 20 entries. I know we always say this… but this time it was especially true; judging this contest was very hard, so many great entries. We try to pick our winner based on overall hotness, originality and unique use of the material and creativity. Plus, our special guest judge HP has to be able to spit over the track… LOL!
AND THE WINNER IS…
‘Lock your Doors’ by Impega Kross out of Montreal, Canada!
This track is a fantastic remix! I’ve heard Canadians don’t lock their doors… but that didn’t stop Impega Kross from creating this track.
We picked this track as our number 1 favorite for these reasons:
- This track is the complete package! It sounds way different than the original material, yet musically it is extremely natural. None of the elements sound even remotely forced. (Not easy to do.)
- Impega Kross has a great ear for space, and literally any MC would want to write to this track. It gives an artist so much room to breathe while still remaining very interesting.
- Sonically the track was bangin. It was well mixed, the drums hit hard and the instruments were well panned.
Listen to the winning track here…
Congrats Impega Kross!
Your prize is (behind curtain #1…)

You might be thinking to yourselves….. Is the Facebook/Twitter Bonus Prize always going to be a t-shirt from your awesome producer apparel collection? The answer is… most likely.. but not always! And, which shirt will it be… who knows. I didn’t know until just now myself.
