Red Bull Big Tune is the nation's premiere head-to-head producer battle, established to showcase the musical talents of emerging as well as established music producers. It was created by DJ/producer/emcee -- Vitamin D and Music Manager/Program Director -- Jonathan Moore in 2004.
Red Bull Big Tune is inspired by the spirit of the Jamaican reggae/dancehall culture where the term Big Tune is derived. In traditional Jamaican dancehall culture a battle is reffered to as a "clash." Selectors (DJ's) would "clash" with other selectors by spinning the latest/heaviest "Riddims" (songs). DJ's would record their own artistic interpretation or version of a standard "Riddim" that selectors would play in the dancehall. Whichever version that was most favored by the people was considered the: "Big Tune."
Two producers share the stage, each at their own station using (2) CDJ's and a mixer that they use to play their original "tune." There are no celebrity judges and no gimmicks. Red Bull Big Tune is inspired by Jamaican sounds clashes where the audience decides who has the Big Tune and who goes home. Each producer moves through a series of brackets determined by random selection. The winner and runner-up from each qualifying battle will be flown to Atlanta, GA to compete in the Red Bull Big Tune national finals.
The Red Bull Big Tune national champion will be given an opportunity to collaborate with an A-list recording artist at Red Bull Studios, located at Red Bull's North American headquarters in Santa Monica California.
