Point Blank’s Alok & Fractal System Competition Winner is Announced!

We were truly overwhelmed by the response to our latest Plugged In remix competition with renowned record label Audiophile and Brazilian megastars Alok & Fractal System. There were over 400 entries in styles ranging from drum ‘n’ bass right through to electro and deep house. After much deliberation, we can now announce that the winner is RIVAS!

He has bagged himself a Novation Producer Pack worth over £1,300, including a Novation Launchkey 25 MKII, a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 interface, and a pair of KRK Rokit 5″ studio monitors, plus we’ve thrown in a free eight-week online course from Point Blank. They’ll also get chance to learn lots of tips and tricks in an exclusive one-on-one 45-minute production mentoring session with both Alok & Fractal System!

RIVAS also gets a merchandise package from Audiophile, plus an honourable mention across Point Blank and Audiophile channels. Second place remixer Black Jacket gets an Audiophile goodie bag (shirt, stickers, custom USB filled with Audiophile Music), and each of the winning remixes will be released officially on Audiophile due to the quality of the entries. The official release date for the tracks will be April 4th.

We’ve just announced the winner of our Plugged In remix competition with Brazilian megastars Alok & Fractal System

This remix competition came directly as a result of our partnership with Dallas-based Audiophile Records, which was founded in December 2012 and has an impressive catalog with artists such as The Crystal Method, Vanilla Ace, and Pezzner plus many more. Audiophile Records have had enormous charting success in all retrospective niches, achieving countless top 10 singles on Beatport, Traxsource, and Juno in 2015 alone. They’re definitely one to watch out for.

Similarly, both Alok and Fractal System are huge artists in their own right and we were very excited to give our online family the chance to remix their track ‘Don’t Ya’. Alok is well-known in Brazil as a producer and a festival organiser, and was was chosen by House DJ Mag as the number 1 DJ in Brazil and received the award for best DJ at RMC (Rio Music Conference) in 2014. In 2015, Alok was named #44 in DJ Mag’s ‘Top 100’ list. Fractal System is an experienced DJ, producer and label boss, heading up his very own Mix Feed imprint.

Winner – RIVAS

2nd Place – Black Jacket
