To celebrate NZ Music Month; We have joined forces with some of the most talented and kind folks in the scene and are proud to announce that we are running our 2nd competition where the winner will get a music production package worth $10k in value which includes 2 days of studio time in Wellington (1 day in the legendary Surgery Recording Studios and 1 day in the Tiny Triumph Recordings Studio) with Toby Lloyd producing the track for you. We will then mix the track to get it sounding huge and exciting. Our friends over at Studio Halfgray will join in on the fun and film an amazing music video to accompany the track. Then Chris Chetland from KOG mastering will master the track to make sure it sonically sits beautifully on all the different platforms and to top it off the kind folks at Radio Active will interview the winner and Premiere the song when it's released.
