Calling all bedroom producers. 

Want to have new queen of UK grime Lady Leshurr freestyle over your beat? Here’s your chance. We’re soon to be launching a new section on FACT called Make Music, dedicated to, well, making music. How to make beats on your iPad. The best affordable synths you can download right now. Tips from your favourite producers, artists and DJs on creating weird new sounds. It’s all covered in Make Music, and to celebrate, FACT and Leshurr are running a competition you’re not going to want to miss.

The idea’s simple. Here’s how you enter:

1. Film a loop you’ve made and get ready to post it Instagram like any of these examples.

2. Export a 1-2 minute high quality version of the beat and upload to WeTransfer or Dropbox.

3. Add the download link in your Instagram caption to your video and post including the hashtag #FACTInstabeats.

Leshurr is going to judge the entries, pick a winner and drop a short live freestyle over the beat she deems to be the coolest, filmed by FACT. On top of the fame and glory of having your beat used as a 90-second freestyle, we’ll also send the winner some swag for your troubles.

Sound good? Of course it does. So what are you waiting for? Check out these previous #FACTInstabeats entries for inspiration, and get going. You can enter as many different beats as you like, and if you’d prefer to email us your HQ beat rather than have it up for download, drop us a line on social[at] Deadline is Monday August 8 at 6pm GMT. Good luck!

Update 6.8.16 – check out some of the entries so far. Keep them coming!
