You don’t have to be a gamer to know of the Halo phenomenon. Halo Nation has one of the most dedicated fan bases in all of gaming, comprised of millions around the world.

Microsoft and 343 Industries, in conjunction with soundtrack partner 7Hz Productions, are recognizing the passion of these fans with the “Halo 4” Soundtrack Remix Contest. Now aspiring musicians and DJs alike have a chance to get their music out to this widespread fan-base by working with the exclusive original stems of Halo composer/producer Neil Davidge, and putting their own spin on the “Halo 4″ soundtrack. The competition starts October 3 and will run through October 29, with the main prizes awarded to the most original and creative tracks. Contestants will have access to three samples from the “Halo 4” Soundtrack, allowing for a wide range of potential remix styles and musical genres.
