Public Enemy Gives Away New Single For Free; Announces Remix Contest Through BitTorrent

(AllHipHop News) Legendary Hip Hop group Public Enemy is joining the wave of unconventional ways artists are distributing their music to the public. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers are giving away their new single “Get Up Stand Up” for free on BitTorrent.

Users can also receive other exclusive perks. By providing an email address, fans can get access to a “Get Up Stand Up” bundle package that includes several free items besides just the song.

“Opt to unlock the Bundle with your email, and you’ll get the music video, plus outtakes, from Public Enemy. You’ll also get the exclusive multitrack: 37 acapellas and stems. Make your own Public Enemy mix, and if the group likes what they hear, they’ll release it digitally for you. Call it creative activism,” states a blog post on BitTorrent‘s site.

There are several prize opportunities for the selected remixes. Besides getting their song released, first place will also win equipment from Blue Mics, Native Instruments, and Public Enemy paraphernalia. Three second place winners will get the free equipment and merchandise. Five third place finishers will when P.E. merchandise.

“For many established people in the music business, there’s a fear that comes along with it. We don’t have that fear. The ability to freely share an archive and have flexibility on how it can be used is an extremely powerful tool when it comes to making music and media available,” said Chuck D’s manager and music producer Gary “G-Wiz” Rinaldo.

To enter the contest download the Public Enemy bundle from BitTorrent and then upload your music files to SoShare. All entries must be submitted by July 18th.
