The winner: Jonathan Myles

The winner of the contest is Jonathan Myles, an independent producer from Atlanta, GA. Myles’s style was influenced by many of the kings of beatmaking: Pete Rock, DJ Premier (Gangstarr), Alchemist, and, of course, the RZA from the Wu-Tang Clan. “I’m just an average Joe,” said Myles, who had to pull over in his car to celebrate the news. Myles recognizes what this opportunity means for his career: “It’s like the hip-hop gods have spoken.” The winner was selected by Inspectah Deck, who said "It reminded me of Rza 1995 in his basement”.

You can still win!

Both us and Deck are overwhelmed by the quality of the beats we received and, as he announced in the video, Jonathan's entry will not be the only beat that makes the album. He liked so many that he will pick at least a few more to record to. We will reach out to some more people in the coming months, so you still have a chance to make the album and produce for a Wu-Tang legend.

More than one beat from the contest will be used by Deck on the album so you can still win!

The Prize

Jonathan will be flown to New York City for a studio session with Inspectah Deck in August to complete the track. He will of course receive full-credit for his participation on the track, just like all the other established producers on the album. We will film the studio session and share with you guys, soon. All songs on this album will be made with samples from Tracklib and Deck is currently working with a bunch of top producers who will produce the other songs. Stay tuned for this and we also have some other amazing contests lined up this fall that you definitely don't wanna miss.
