ENSPIRE Contributor: Aricka Croxton

Rapper, songwriter, and actor Dave East has partnered with Tracklib for their Beat Battle Competition. Producers are able to create a sample using Tracklib’s extensive catalog of music samples and submit it for a chance to impress East. They will fly the winning producer to New York City to work on the track live and in-person with East. Also, they will receive standard writing credits and publishing on the song, sample clearance of the song they’ve sampled, and a one-year standard subscription to Tracklib. Tracklib will cover the flight and accommodations to New York from anywhere in the world.

East, who has collaborated with producers like Swizz Beatz, Timbaland, Harry Fraud, AraabMuzik, and more, see this as a chance for producers at all levels to showcase their ear for beats. “Tracklib gives you the opportunity to use samples that maybe you didn’t think you could use or find,” said Dave East. “Samples you never found before. I think it’s a great database to explore your own visions and push your creativity to the next level.”
