We are celebrating 10 years of the Roundhouse Rising Festival with a very special Stems Challenge for UK based Music Producers aged 18-25. The winners of this challenge will receive two free days in our EMI Recording Studio with an engineer.

We have enlisted the help of our friends, Moses Boyd, Lau.ra, Skinny Pelembe, Awate and Reeps One to create a downloadable stems pack full of wonky beats, rap verses, drum loops and vocal samples.

The challenge is simple – use these stems along with your own ideas to create the most imaginative track you can.

We will be selecting our five favourite tracks and offering those producers two days in our EMI Recording studio, completely free!

These recording sessions will take place in our recording studio at some point next year (2021). Please note that we are unable to confirm the exact dates of these sessions due to the uncertainties around the Coronavirus pandemic but we will keep in touch with the winners to ensure we book your session when it is safe to do so.

The Rules:

• Your track must be no longer than two minutes in length. Any track longer than two minutes will not be considered.

• You can submit a maximum of two tracks.

• Each track must use at least one of the stems provided from the stems pack.

• You must be aged 18-25 at the point of submission to be eligible for this project.

• Recording sessions will take place in the Roundhouse Recording Studios, London. If you are chosen as one of the five successful entries you will be required to travel to the venue for the sessions. If you require any support with travel costs please email AdviceBase@roundhouse.org.uk
