The Night Shift and French electronic artist Chapelier Fou are calling on all budding DJs and producers to put their mix where their mouth is. This is an incredibly rare and unique opportunity for DJs to effectively get their hands on an entire Orchestra.
The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment have an exclusive recording of their rehearsal with the world famous conductor Sir Simon Rattle, playing one of the most influential composers in Western music; Claude Debussy (whose 150th Anniversary it is this year)… and they want you to remix it.
The samples you’ll be using are taken from their June recording of La Mer, Debussy’s ode to the sea, and not only is this your chance to have free rein over these one-off recordings, but the winner will be judged by innovative French musician and DJ; Chapelier Fou.
Entries must be submitted by 30 October and winners will be announced mid-November.
For full information and to enter, visit their website at:
