Atari — one of the world’s most iconic consumer brands and interactive entertainment producers — and ICON Collective, the leading music production school in Los Angeles, announced today the Yars Rising Remix Competition for Atari and WayForward’s upcoming title, Yars Rising, a sci-fi Metroidvania take on one of Atari’s richest classic titles.

The Yars Rising Remix Competition is designed for music producers, DJs, and anyone passionate about video game music. The challenge is for amateur and professional producers to take music from the upcoming Yars Rising soundtrack and put their own unique spin on it. Whether it’s chiptune, EDM, hip-hop, trance, or any other genre, Atari and ICON want to hear your creations! This unique competition invites music producers from around the globe to reimagine a track from the game’s electrifying soundtrack, offering a rare opportunity to showcase their creativity and join the ranks of music’s fearless innovators. Enter the Yars Rising Remix Competition here.

The competition begins today, June 21, 2024, and submissions are open until July 12. Finalists will be selected and announced the week of July 15. The submission must be an original work and must utilize the song “Disconnection” by Moe Shop feat. YUCe from the Yars Rising soundtrack.
