The huge success of Global Remix Battle Powered by PMC Speakers has inspired the team behind the event to launch a second edition, which will run from May 30th to September 12th 2019.
In keeping with the first event, Global Remix Battle II is an international talent search involving Grammy-winning DJ and producer Afrojack, record label Wall Recordings, artist management company LDH Europe and UK loudspeaker manufacturer PMC.
Thousands of producers and remixers from all over the world entered the first Global Remix Battle and the five overall winners were announced in March 2019. They included Dutch producer Buzz Low and Japanese producer SLAY, both of whom have now signed contracts with artist management company LDH Europe and had their remixes released on Afrojack’s Wall Recordings label. Buzz Low was also chosen by PMC as the recipient of a pair of result6 compact nearfield reference monitors – the same monitors that Afrojack has in his own studio. Another pair will be given away this year to one of the winners from Global Remix Battle II.
“We are delighted to be once again supporting this innovative project and we’re anticipating plenty of exciting remixes from producers around the globe,” says PMC’s Creative Director Keith Tonge. “The last contest unleashed a huge amount of creativity; the exceptional quality of the tracks that were submitted made it very difficult to choose a recipient for our result6 nearfield monitors. Whoever wins this year can rest assured that the high resolution, razor sharp imaging, extended bass and consistent tonal balance at all levels of PMC’s result6 nearfield monitors will bring the ultimate in clarity to their future recordings and mixes.”
To enter the competition, up and coming producers must remix Switch, a track by Afrojack, Jewelz & Sparks and Emmalyn, which can be downloaded and, once remixed, submitted for consideration via this web link: www.afrojack.com/globalremixbattle.
Every entry will be listened to and assessed by Afrojack and teams from LDH Europe and Wall Recordings, with the winners will be announced in September via Afrojack’s social media channels. As well as management contracts with LDH Europe and a chance to have their remix released on Wall Recordings, winners will also receive mentorship from Afrojack who has helped build careers for many artists and producers including Quintino, R3hab, Fais and MC Ambush.

One of the world’s most innovative and sought-after artists, Grammy Award-winning producer, songwriter, DJ Afrojack, continues to shatter boundaries that push music into bold new directions. Since making his breakthrough with the multi-platinum-selling single ‘Take Over Control’, the Dutch-born genre-bending musician has lent his production skills to tracks including David Guetta’s number one smash ‘Titanium (feat. Sia)’ and co-created major hits for such artists as Beyoncé, Pitbull, and will.i.am. Having brought 2017 to an electrifying close with star-studded track ‘Dirty Sexy Money’ alongside David Guetta, Charli XCX and French Montana, Afrojack has propelled into what is set to be another incredible year, having already dropped ‘Bad Company’ with DirtCaps, a remix of U2’s iconic ‘Get Out of Your Own Way’ and reunited with David Guetta and Sia on ‘Helium’. Fans the world over have eagerly anticipated the arrival of his latest single ‘Bed of Roses’ (featuring Stanaj) released as a gift to fans on Valentine’s Day. In the last two years Afrojack was named one of the 50 Most Important People in Electronic Dance Music by Rolling Stone and placed on the Forbes ‘30 Under 30’ list, also receiving a stamp in his likeness in the Netherlands and becoming the second DJ ever to imprint his hands into the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
