We collaborated with SoundBetter on a contest offering $500 and an opportunity to have a track mixed and mastered by Zach Steele – the multi-platinum engineer who’s worked with Travis Scott and Lil Nas X. Boy, was it tough for our judges to choose a winner with stellar entries across all four genre categories. Without further ado, we present our winner and three runners-up!

Top Prize Winner

@GlassGarden took our hip hop beat and turned it into a radio-worthy hit with heart wrenching lyrics, incredible vocals and a catchy hook. Congratulations! Here’s what our judges had to say: 

“Ethereal! Loving the guitar licks, the emotional introduction, and who can forget the catchy hook? We’re stoked to see how this track shapes up with Zach Steele’s magic!”

1st Runner-up

Those fire bars and that attitude – we’ve got to give it to @angel77 for spicing up this trap beat.

2nd Runner-up

Spanish lyrics and that emotive voice? This was amazing @elplandeayalavive!

3rd Runner-up

This was a really great revision on our R&B track, @raphaeltodd. Kudos!

Once again, Congratulations to all our #BandLabwithSoundBetter contest winners! If you didn’t win, there are plenty more chances with our June contests and #BL50M Giveaway. Good luck!
