At South By South West Red Bull launched their first Big Tune event of the year with featured producer Evidence in front of a crowd of over 2000. The attendees witnessed Budo also known as Josh Sharp take home the victory. Budo is quoted as saying “I’m super proud and humbled, if it’s possible to feel those two at once, to have had the opportunity to play my beats in front of so many people.”
For all the producers interested in throwing their beat reel’s into the ring applications open April first on www.redbullbigtune.com. Qualifying rounds will be held in Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, Seattle, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Ann Arbor/Detroit and Virginia Beach. There will be two winners selected from each city who will move on to compete in the final phase of the competition held in Chicago during the latter part of this year. In case you are unaware everyone is vying for the opportunity to create with an artist of their choice at Red Bull Studios in Los Angeles, California.
