Open Call: Remix your Way to LA – BMIM x ADE Conference 2022

What makes a good trailer remix? Jake Versluis, VP of A&R at Position Music, will guide you through the selection of the best remixes. Why does something work well? What are things you must avoid when making a remix? During this panel you can get an insight in the process of picking a remix for a trailer.

Want to put your production and remix skills to the test? Remix one of the most successful sync songs from the Position Music catalog! We invite you to download the stems to Another Level by Oh The Larceny and apply your years of knowledge and skills to deconstructing, tearing down, twisting, and building back up the song in a way you feel would fit really well in modern-day film and video game trailers.

Position Music has chosen a song that has licensed multiple times throughout the years, generating a large of amount of income, and they want to find the BEST trailer remix of this song to freshen it up and go land some new syncs!

We are looking for all BMIM composers and producers. Everyone can join the competition.
Jake Versluis, VP of A&R at Position Music, will make a selection of the best remixes and will discuss them during our BMIM x ADE Conference and announce the winning remix on the spot! If you want to apply, make sure you read this:
