Red Bull Big Tune is the nation's premiere head-to-head producer battle, established to showcase the musical talents of emerging as well as established music producers.
Inspired by the spirit of the Jamaican reggae/dancehall culture where the term Big Tune is derived. In traditional Jamaican dancehall culture a battle is reffered to as a "clash." Selectors (DJs) would "clash" with other selectors by spinning the latest/heaviest "Riddims" (songs). DJs would record their own artistic interpretation or version of a standard "Riddim" that selectors would play in the dancehall. Whichever version that was most favored by the people was considered the "Big Tune."
