TIME TO ANNOUNCE THE WINNERS! of the Vocal Hook Challenge Beat Competition, sponsored by SampleTank 2.5 from Ik Multimedia, Roaring Lion Energy Drink and the Cypher Lounge Radio Show! P5audio, along with guest judge Hassahn Phenonmenon from the Cypher Lounge, spent the last couple of weeks going through your tracks. We admit this was probably the most difficult beat challenge so far for producers, so congratulations to you all for rising to the occasion. It’s an honor for us to have each and everyone of your participate in these contests. We definitely heard a lot of hot stuff this time around, and judging this contest was not easy!!!
Just to recap, for this contest we are selecting one Grand Prize 1st place winner, one winner for the best Youtube® video portion, and YOU the audience gets to choose the LISTENER’S CHOICE WINNER, LIVE on the Cypher Lounge Internet Radio Show, this Wednesday, June 2nd (See Details below).
So without further ado, let’s get right to the winners…
The Grand Prize Winner of the Vocal Hook Challenge IS…
Winner: Marco Scherer
Producer Name: Marco Scherer
Listen: Marco Sherer’s Winning Track
Uh oh! We got a major upset here! A Trance producer came in and beat out the Hip Hop tracks! We already got the controversy happening!
Here’s why the judges rolled with Marco’s track as the winner: for one, the production sounds excellent. This entry was one of the most polished sounding tracks we received. The over-all instrumental and vocal blend is seamless. Second, Marco created an extremely interesting hook out of the vocal chops, and expanded the potential of these chops more then most of the other entries. And third, Hassahn Phenomenon immediately improvised a hot ass verse the second he heard the track drop (and that has to be worth at least 100 points or something!). Marco, enjoy the FREE copy of Samptank 2.5 from IK Multimedia, along with $200 cash, $200 in P5audio sounds, plus a FREE T-shirt from P5audio’s Music Producer Apparel T-Shirt Line.
