To enter, artists should submit their best song, and Lord-Alge will pick the winner himself. He will make his choice based on the overall presentation: song, image and performance. The Top 25 finalists will be chosen by public voting; one lucky (and talented) artist or band will have their song mixed by none other than CLA himself.
Chris Lord-Alge had this to say, "I am super-excited about this. I am all about finding the best song and giving it the best mix. What I'm looking for is the best possible song with the best structure, getting to the point and showing me the lyrics and melody. So it's not going to be about how good your mix is, it's going to be how good your song is, because the mixing part is going to be on me. A good song to me gets its point across in three minutes, four minutes max, so make sure that what you send me is the best arrangement you can come up with for your song. I look forward to bringing this competition to a close with a great mix for Waves, AudioFanzine and the winner of the competition. Good luck."
