The House of Rémy Martin Launches Season Four of the Producers Series Competition in Search of the Next Big Music Producer The House of Rémy Martin has launched season four of the Producers Series. The contest provides a platform for up and coming producers to have their music heard and recognized. The contest to find the next super producer kicked off with a preliminary event on August 17 in Chicago, before embarking on a national 13-city tour including New York, Los Angeles and Miami.
The semifinals begin September 28 and the grand finale on November 9 will take place in Las Vegas. Contest participants submit their best tracks to RemyProducers. com for an opportunity to compete at the preliminary events.
The preliminaries will yield 15 semifinalists who will advance to the five national semifinal events. Five finalists will be flown to Las Vegas, for the Grand Finale and a chance to win $4,900 from Guitar Center towards building their own personal music studio. “Rémy Martin celebrates the many talents and creative artistry of music producers through the Producers Series,” says Thomas Beraud Sudreau, Rémy Martin Director for Culture & Entertainment.
“The contest features some of the biggest music producers in the world, sharing insights into their process and succeeding in the music business. “Rémy Martin has partnered with super producers DJ Drama, Pete Rock, Just Blaze, Honorable C. N.
O. T. E.
and Zaytoven, who most recently worked with Migos on their “Culture” album. “As a top music producer, partnering with Rémy Martin was a no brainer for me—they are one of the best cognac producers,” says super producer Zaytoven. “We both push for excellence—to be the best.
I respect that. I’m really looking forward to sharing my story and success with the next wave of top producers. This is a great opportunity for the innovators.
“Each event will be hosted by radio DJ Jay Claxton.
