This competition ran from 21st August 2020 to 30th September 2020 and is now closed.
Please see below for a full list of prizes and a list of steps to follow when entering:
– 2 x KRK Rokit 5 G4 Studio Monitors
– Korg Monologue Black Monophonic Synthesizer
– Soundtoys 5 Effects Pack
– 1-2-1 Feedback Session with Topic
Follow the simple instructions below to submit your track for consideration. (If you have already released your track with Spinnup, skip to step 8)
1. Create your free Spinnup account HERE
Or if you already have one, log in as normal.
2. Create a single release
Once you’ve logged into your Spinnup account, click on “Create a new release” and select the release option “Single (1-2 Tracks)”.
3. Upload your single
Upload the song you want to enter into ‘Spinnup Bangers Challenge’ competition. Make sure that you only publish your own music and not recordings by other artists. For more info about that click here.
4. Add your track information
The stores are pretty specific about what can and can’t go on your release. DO NOT write your artist name, or the name of any featuring artists, in the song title.
For the version please select “Original”.
If your track contains explicit lyrics, please select “Explicit Lyrics”.
Go to “Release Options” and enter your artist name.
Choose the genre of your music and the language in which you have labeled your song.
You can select to release your single ‘ASAP’ or on a date of your choosing.
Continue to “Cover Art Upload” and upload a square image that is at least 3000 × 3000 pixels in size.
If you don’t have any artwork ready, then you can use one of the free designs we have created!
IMPORTANT: Your cover art should only show the title of your song and your artist name. Further information is NOT allowed on the cover.
7. Review your order
This is the last step, and it’s really important you check all the information to make sure it’s correct.
As part of our competition you do not have to pay for the worldwide release of your single for the first year – all you need to do is use the code ‘BANGERSAU20‘ (*SAVE IT NOW SO YOU DON’T FORGET*) at the checkout and you will not be charged. But as releases operate as a subscription, you will still need to enter your credit card information to renew your payment in a year’s time.
Remember, you keep all of the rights to your song and we’ll pay you 100% of the royalties collected.
8. Apply to the Spinnup Showcase jury
This is the most important part. Once your release has been confirmed (you’ll get an email from our team), login to your Spinnup account and click on “Bangers Challenge” on your Overview page and follow the steps to push your track to this jury. If you already released music through Spinnup, you can choose any track to submit.
This will alert the jury and allow them to listen to your track.
After completing steps 1 through 8, you’ve successfully applied to the Spinnup Bangers Challenge. The jury will listen to all of the songs submitted and then decide on the winners.

The application phase for the ‘Bangers Challenge’ runs from 21 August 2020 to 30 September 2020.
Remember to upload your song as early as possible to ensure your entry is processed and entered in time.
