Dutch remixer Buzz Low has won a pair of PMC result6 compact nearfield reference monitors after taking part in “Global Remix Battle I” powered by PMC Speakers, an international talent search involving Grammy-winning DJ and producer Afrojack and artist management company LDH Europe.
Buzz Low, one of the five winners chosen by Afrojack and LDH Europe, was subsequently picked to receive PMC’s award-winning monitors after impressing the company’s judges with the audio quality of his mix, its composition and its vibe.
“All five tunes were top drawer, but Buzz Low’s entry had that edge,” says PMC’s Creative Director Keith Tonge. “The sonic quality of his mix was on the button and made him the ideal choice for a pair of result6 monitors. The high resolution, razor sharp imaging and supreme bass end will only boost his creativity. He now has the same monitors as Afrojack and will be able to 100% trust his output.”
“Global Remix Battle I” powered by PMC Speakers was conducted over the last six months and received submissions from over 129 countries in all corners of the world. Each entrant was asked to remix Afrojack’s “Let It Rip”, taken from his “Press Play” EP, which was launched in 2018.
The winners were selected and personally announced by Afrojack via his Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook social media platforms over a period of five days. They include Buzz Low and Exlau, both from the Netherlands, Chipcat from Finland, Italian producer DES3ETT, and from across the globe, HIROKI from Tokyo, Japan. While it was a huge challenge to select them, the final five were all able to put an extra special twist on their versions of the track, which any fan of Afrojack will be excited to hear.
“I have been performing for at least a decade but it’s always been my passion to help build new artists,” says Afrojack, Founder of Wall Recordings and CEO of LDH Europe. “These five winners are very talented, and I’m pumped to be getting the opportunity to work with them, and to give them a platform to really grow. I think the fans will hear what they can do and will believe in them like we do.”
The winning tracks have now been released on an EP entitled “Global Remix Battle I EP”, which is available on all digital streaming platforms worldwide from Wall Recordings/Armada Music with Afrojack at the helm supporting the new artists.
The EP release is fresh off the heels of Afrojack’s cross-genre bending hit “Sober” featuring Rae Sremmurd and Stanaj, and ahead of his headlining performance on March 31st 2019 at Ultra Music Festival.
