This week was super close and tough to pick. Great job to everyone that submitted and worked hard on their tune. Congratulations to this week’s Top Picks for the Production Challenge. Go show some love to @Thumper @DESIGN and @davidf_music.

Production Challenge 09 was a blast and we were so HAPPY to see all of the submissions. That challenge was definitely one that made us stretch a little as producers. We will be jumping to the opposite spectrum of moods for this week as the theme for Production Challenge 10 will be Dark & Minimal!

This week’s production challenge is to write a track that is on the darker side with a minimalistic feel to it. Keep it simple, but convey the feeling.

The key for this week will be in “F” (major or minor) and at 170bpm. Please use at least 5 samples from the free sample pack. There are no more creative constraints beyond that. Have fun, keep it simple, and let’s see what you can do! Click HERE for an inspirational playlist to get started.

Happy Producing!
