Kenyan producers and artistes are among the 8,700 sound submissions, from 3,600 artistes in more than 100 countries for the Avicii x You music project
The project is a collaboration between Ericsson and world-famous DJ and producer Avicii.
"I'm amazed at the number of contributions already, still so early in the project. There is so much talent in the world, and it's great to be a part of bringing it all together," said Avicii. "We've already collected thousands of melodies and bass-lines, next up is beat and rhythms and I'm very excited to see how it's all coming together."
Each week participants are able to vote on the selected finalists picked by Avicii. The upload and voting process will continue until submissions for all categories have been collected and voted on. Avicii will then create the world's first "crowdsourced" song, with a release date February 26, 2013 at Mobile World Congress.
