03) A small cash prize

What led to the creation of this remix comp?

For quite some time SenseNet and I (A1-Voodoo aka CLRH2O) had been talking about something fun to do that would add to the story of the newly re-launched TUFF LOVE DUBS Dubplate passion project.

As you already know, original releases of the music on the reborn imprint are only found on the ultra limited edition 10″ Dubplates (with only the song names provided, leaving the mystery of the artists to be discovered by those willing to hunt for it). In addition to that, some of you might also be aware that I am expanding the footprint of TLD to include remixes of these original Dubplate Only drops, and those will be available Digitally (and maaaaybe also on Dubplate… haven’t quite figured that part out yet, but it’s a possibility). These more widely available digital releases tell who made the remix and will reach a much larger audience worldwide.

And so, following the vibe of bringing this unique project to a wider audience, the official 2021 Tuff Love Dubs remix competition was born.
