The Tripwire posted the information on the new remix competition, complete with stems and production software…

Mad Decent and Yeasayer have teamed to create the first remix contest we can remember that is not limited to musicians or people with musical equipment somewhere near them or someone with musical knowledge within their immediate circle of acquaintances. By going to this page, you can download free production software along with the stems for Yeasayer’s “O.N.E.” and have a go at it as many times as you want. This may actually be the future of music education. It may also be Jay-Z’s opportunity to get a mashup on Pitchfork. Check the rules and prizes after the jump. Good luck.

Winners will be determined by the public, and Mad Decent has offered up some easy widgets for creators to easily promote their work via Twitter, Facebook, and Embeddable Code.

Remixers can upload as many different mixes as they want.

Entries begin April 22nd, 2010 (2 weeks submission) and close May 14th, 2010 (after 1 week of voting). Winners will be announced shortly after.

Grand Prize Package:
– Native Instruments Traktor Scratch Pro (more info below)
– Yeasayer ODD BLOOD cd and lp
– Your mix featured on Maddecent.com

Runners Up (4 total)
– Beats Ear Buds
– Yeasayer ODD BLOOD cd and lp
