The winner will have the chance of a lifetime to be signed to a record label and be managed by one of the premier international management companies in the world with an impeccable range of artists. Upon being signed, the winner will work very closely with Afrojack who will teach, guide, and help the producer grow as an artist professionally on a global scale. The winner will follow in the steps of other successful artists who Afrojack helped build careers for such as Quintino, R3hab, Fais, MC Ambush and many more.
“I can’t wait to see who and what we discover from this search, this is the first time I’ve decided to look for new music producers through this remix contest and I know it’s going to be super exciting to see what comes in! For me, these are the guys that are day in, day out making it happen, being creative, and putting it all together. If I can help spotlight some new talent and give people a chance to start a career, that’s something I feel so blessed to do.” Afrojack said about the global search. “Plus having awesome partners like PMC Speakers and LDH Europe only makes this so much better, we’ve assembled the best of the best with this team, it’s going to be a very cool opportunity.”

Gigcasters Achieves Broadcast Quality Live Streaming with the Zixi OnAir Mobile App

Gigcasters, a live streaming engineering company, has seen mobile production increase during the pandemic and witnessed first-hand the benefits of higher frequency, lower cost productions using Zixi’s OnAir app infrastructure. The company first tried live video delivery remotely using laptops and WebRTC, but found the reliability of the feed was not good, and packet loss and image quality were insufficient. Once the Zixi OnAir app was quickly enabled on local production teams’ mobile phones, getting a broadcast-quality feed was easy.
