Guaranteed to be a classic, they are lookin for the best of the best.
niggas who's gon bring the heat.
something we ain't never heard before.
Here's the lowdown about how it all started.
BIG TUNE is a program that was created to showcase the musical talents of emerging as well as established producers...The Producers battle head to head through rounds of single elimination competition.
The last Producer standing will be the Producer with the... "Big Tune"... and crowned champion of the evening.
The event is inspired by the spirit of the Jamaican Reggae/Dancehall Culture where the term "Big Tune" is derived.. In traditional Jamaican Dancehall Culture a battle is referred to as a "Clash". Selectors (dj's) would "Clash" with other Selectors by spinning the latest/heaviest "Riddims"(songs). DJ's (emcee's) would record their own artistic interpretation or "Version" of a standard "Riddim that Selectors would play in the Dancehall. Whichever " Version" that was most favored by the people is considered the: "Big Tune".
During "BIG TUNE" event, Producers are paired and then battle head to head.
Here's how it's gonna go down.
THE FORMAT: Two producers share the stage each at their own station/table where they have 2 CDJ's and a mixer that they will use to play their Tunes.
Producer (1) will play an original self-produced tune approx for 60 seconds...
Producer (2) will do the same.
Each Producer will play their 2nd original self-produced tune.
This brings the end of the round.
At this point the host will inform the crowd that they have a collective decision to make... The Producer who elicits the largest response from the people/crowd will advance to the next round and be paired with the other advancing producers to compete for the BIG TUNE TITLE.
REGIONAL EVENTS AND THE NATIONAL TITLE:
12 producers will be selected for each of the 8 regional events. - Philadelphia - Oakland - Houston - Detroit - Chicago - Seattle - Washington DC - Los Angeles Anyone can apply to be one of the 12 participants - by submitting their info along with 3 beats to www.redbullbigtune.com Our team will evaluate all entrees and will get back to the 12 that they would like to participate in each of the 8 cities hosting a Big Tune in 2008.
