A huge thankyou for all of the submissions to the latest of the Co-Producer Sprint! The results are in, and we’re excited to be able to share the winning tracks.
Back in April, a group of Create + Destroy and Produce Music students worked together in the Liveschool studios to make a sample bank of drums, synths, and live instruments. You can check out some behind the scenes snaps of the recording process here.
The next stage of the Co-Producer Sprint is a bit of friendly competition. The samples were given out to our Liveschool students and alumni, with the challenge of making a track in a week. Up for grabs, the grand prize of an attended mastering session with Ben Feggans at Studios 301.

A huge congratulations to Guillaume Saussay aka. GOHS for taking out this round with this weighty cut, Cheers. It’s a restrained and slow burning excursion that made excellent use of the kalimba samples in the sample bank.
The results for the Co-Producer Sprint have always been close, and this round is no different. A huge congratulations goes to our runner up tracks. Chris Tian & Miranda McPherson layed down Fantasy, a beautifully soulful piece of electronica, and Ben Rourke‘s gave us this spacious deep house roller, Aha.
