News: Havana Club x Gilles Peterson Remix Comp

Have you ever fancied yourself as a global remixing superstar? Well if you have, Havana Club is inviting you to remix a track and win the opportunity to spend ten days in Havana recording and producing some tunes with Cuban musicians and DJ Gilles Peterson. How lovely.

Havana Club’s authentic Cuban rum has often inspired us (if you count karaoke renditions of Ricky Martin as inspiration), so why not get involved? Obvs you need to be of legal drinking age, but there are no prescribed conditions. You can use any software you fancy, or use the online tools available on the website.

Completed remixes will be judged by “tastemaker” Gilles Peterson, who will select the group of winners that will jet off to Havana. Mr Peterson said: “I’m excited about Havana Club Cultura Mix. I can’t wait to collaborate with talented producers from around the world and some of Cuba’s finest musicians in one of the world’s music capitals. Winners can expect to make music that they will never, ever regret!”

Entries are open now and close on 2nd April 2014.

Visit the Havana Club Cultura Mix website for all the deets.
