Core Update 114 | We've Got a Big Announcement

We’re starting this week off with a big announcement…

On December 1st, we’ll be kicking off 10 Days of Christmas here on the Collective! That means, 10 days of fun activities where you’ll have the chance to win points and prizes. :santa:t2::gift::christmas_tree:

And to get us in the mood for the festive season, this week’s #MondayMotivation track is a Christmas classic:

Soundcore Stories Podcast
Unfortunately due to busy schedules, we haven’t been able to ask Buck Snow all your awesome questions yet, but do not worry, we’ll make it happen asap! In the meantime, @sean.L was able to sit down with UK-based producer Philip Larsen to speak about what it’s like having a song blow up on TikTok unexpectedly, recording remixes for Katy Perry, and winning a GRAMMY for his work on Kylie Minogue’s track, “Come Into My World”.

Check out one of Philip’s most popular remixes here:
