Consequence is teaming up with Modern Drummer and YurtRock in search of the next great blues musicians.

How It Works?

Courtesy of Yurt Rock, contestants can download a free Clyde Stubblefield drum pack. As James Brown’s drummer, Stubblefield is not just one of the most influential musicians in history; he’s also one of the most sampled. Over the years, his drum patterns have been sampled by everyone from Prince to Beastie Boys to Dr. Dre.

Once the drum loops are downloaded, contestants must utilize at least one of the three drum loops in the production of an instrumental track or a song with lyrics that is 1-4 minutes in length. Once the track/song is completed, contestants must then upload their completed music to be entered into the contest.
