Remix competitions are a great way to get your music heard and released, but Liquid State's #PressPlay remix competition wants to give you in-person studio time with Norwegian producers Alan Walker, K-391 and Tungevaag.

Liquid State is Sony Music and tech company Tencent Music Entertainment's homes for electronic music in China. The company uses YouTube as the platform for its #PressPlay campaign, which asks up-and-coming producers to upload their take on the trio's "Play," itself a reimagination of DJ Mangoo's 2000 hit "Eurodancer."

All you have to do is download the stems, get to work, and upload your remix to YouTube using the hashtag #PressPlay.

Submissions will be collected and persed through. Submissions close after about a week, so make sure you get your remix up by Sunday, Sept. 8. Walker, K-391 and Tungevaang will pick their favorite, and the winner will come to meet the producers for an in-person studio sessions to finalize the remix. The winning song will be released on Liquid State as a dual release, which means you could share an official remix with Walker.

Listen to Walker, K-391 and Tungevaang's original take on Mangoo's anthem below.
