the brief
Ready to make your mark in the music industry? Well here is your chance.

One Direction are inviting remixers and producers from the UK to remix "Steal My Girl" the first single from their upcoming album FOUR, slated for release on November 17th, 2014.

This is a huge opportunity to work with the music and vocals of Harry, Niall, Louis, Liam and Zayn. After getting involved in remixing himself, Liam Payne wanted to give other people the opportunity. He, and their guest judges including senior A&R and Radio executives from Sony Music, will select one artist to receive a prize of £1,500. The selected remix will be posted to millions of music fans across the band's official channels and potentially played on radio as an exclusive premiere.

To participate in this life changing opportunity use the stems provided to create a high-energy Friday night club track to get dance floors moving everywhere!

Since then, those five boys from the UK and Ireland have gone on to achieve a staggering 94 number ones, more than 46 million records worldwide, drum up more than 109 million Twitter followers and connect with 33 million Facebook fans. There’s no doubt about it, they are the biggest band on the planet.

Each one of these songs has come together on the road, on tour buses and in hotel rooms.
