Point Blank has teamed up with legendary house label Moody Recordings, together with dance music website Magnetic Mag, to bring you an exclusive production competition now happening on their online community of music producers, Plugged In.
They’re calling on all house aficionados out there to submit their strongest new, original tracks for this competition – the winning entrant will bag themselves a place on Moody’s upcoming 20th anniversary compilation, together with an exclusive feature on Magnetic Mag plus a load of prizes from Point Blank worth over $2,000.
Since 1996, Moody Recordings has released tracks from many key influential players in house music, including Paul Johnson, Collette and Jordan Fields. Hailing from Chicago, Moody has become known by DJs as the go-to label for the purest of house sounds. Now run by ex-Beatport CEO Jonas Tempel, the Moody team is reuniting and on the hunt for new talent to add to its impressive roster.
How To Enter
Head to the Tracks page on Plugged In and submit your entry by 30th September!
Moody’s roots are based in Chicago house, with elements of deep, funky and soulful styles all also relevant – this should be considered when submitting your entry. Entries will be judged on their quality, originality and fit with the Moody house music ethic.
