Known for being the world’s leading digital music store for DJs and producers, Beatport has announced a contest with Play, a next-generation platform designed to create opportunities for aspiring DJs and producers to get their name to the forefront and be recognized.

In the past two years, Beatport held more than 50 remix contests, allowing entrants to remix music from artists like deadmau5 and Martin Solveig. With more than 10,000 submissions, Beatport has helped launched the careers of Zedd and other producers. Zedd is a two-time Beatport remix contest winner who went on to collaborate with Skrillex and Lady Gaga and signing tracks to labels that include mau5trap, Dim Mak and OWSLA. He also made Elektro's "20 DJs to Look out for in 2012."
