Hot Contest: Ryan Lewis & Buffalo David Bitton Search for the Next Great Producer


Buffalo David Bitton and Grammy-award winner Ryan Lewis have announced a search to find the next great music producer!

Contestants who think they have what it takes should go to and enter the contest by uploading a video of themselves showing off their best original beat. From there, Ryan will select the top 12 contestants, who will be invited to New York for a once in a lifetime “Buffalo Beat Battle” with the “Same Love” singer. Ryan will pick a winner, who will receive $5,000, a shout-out on Twitter from him, and a shopping spree from Buffalo David Bitton.

“I’ve always loved beat battles, they were an important part of my journey as a young producer,” Ryan said. “One of the best parts about them was seeing talented producers have a platform to get some shine. I’m excited to hear and support something brand new.”

This isn’t the first time Ryan and Buffalo David Bitton have partnered up. In late 2013, Buffalo David Bitton kicked off the “Blank Check Series,” providing Macklemore & Ryan Lewis funding to produce a series of documentaries of their first worldwide arena tour.

The “Buffalo Battle” contest will launch on April 30 and culminate on May 9.
