Lots of imagination is going into submissions for The Score, our contest to find a track that will become the theme music for this year’s Hip Hop Honors show. Like we figured, there are plenty of beatmeisters out there with cool ideas. Turns out that it’s all about variety.
ARS631, a dude from Queens, NY, has got the evil church organ thingee in “Shut Up.
Danny from Savannah, GA is going dreamy on “What Now.”
Rendaheatmonsta, a NoCal knob-twirler, kicks it electro stylee with “House of Rave.”
DJSAT gets his symphony on with the string-centric vibe of “Classical Beat.”
HeavyComponent (“Brooklyn all day every day”) goes for ominous street stuff on his “Gangsta and Simple.”
Have you been drilling down through the entries? What other producers have got you nodding? What other producers have dropped some odd sounds? Which submissions should we all be listening to?
