We’re psyched to team up with Jacknife Lee and AWAL to present the Jacknife Lee’s “Hit the Bell” Remix Challenge. This is your chance to work with a track from a world-class producer and win a career-boosting prize package!
The Jacknife Lee
With production credits for artists like Taylor Swift, U2, REM and The Killers, Jacknife Lee is easily one of the most in-demand producers in the game. In his highly-anticipated solo album, the LA-based producer stepped out of his usual role as “the grown-up in the room” to make music “for joy and for the hell of it“.
Channeling his love of Afrobeat and collaborating with a group of underground artists, The Jacknife Lee delivers a burst of leftfield electronica with a dash of anything from krautrock to blues to jazz.

Hit the Bell
Jacknife Lee’s latest single “Hit the Bell” is a bold, bouncy jam with slamming verses by Toronto rapper Haviah Mighty and dreamy vocals from Sneaks. Speaking of the liberating effect the creation process has on the track’s DIY aestheric, the producer said,
“The first person I called was Sneaks, who’s 20. She would send me iPhone voice messages, like bits of songs – just her mumbling. It was so liberating to hear something where she didn’t seem to care. I got into this total amateurish vibe, recording to cassettes, recording to phones.”
Featuring a powerful melody and tons of groove, “Hit the Bell” showcases the full range of Jacknife’s slick sound design which can be taken into many different directions – we can’t wait to hear where you bring it.
