We Ain't Here For Long (TK Remix) - Nathan Dawe

Atlantic Records is one of the world’s most prominent labels, encompassing a global roster of acclaimed artists and an unparalleled catalog including many of the world's most popular and influential recordings. From Aretha Franklin & Led Zeppelin to Bruno Mars & Ed Sheeran, the winning remix will get a release on this legendary record label (subject to A&R approval)!
The 1st place winner will win Komplete 14 Ultimate by Native Instruments, which includes 140 instruments and effect, 103 expansion packs (samples, loops and presets), a total of 84,000+ sounds and 1060GB of samples! This bundle includes the industry standard sampler ‘Kontakt 7’, the synth engine ‘Reaktor 6’, wavetable synths ‘Massive’ and ‘Massive X’, award-winning sample-based synth ‘Playbox’, a great variety of classical, vintage and contemporary sampled instruments and much much more!
The 1st place winner will get promoted by RepostExchange with a Managed Campaign on the platform. Managed Campaigns are RepostExchange’s most powerful product - our algorithms quickly get your track in front of relevant artists who are most likely to repost and engage. They provide a way to get fast, genuine engagement on a track, which is perfect when launching new music and can often lead to official SoundCloud chart and playlist inclusion.
With 10,000 credits, that’s enough for your tracks to reach up to 1 million SoundCloud accounts!
With the RepostExchange Promoter Plan you can promote not only your own tracks, but also those of other SoundCloud users. You can also run three featured campaigns, run sponsored follow campaigns and managed campaigns. You get up to 500 open direct requests and can run targeted repost campaigns with 15 Free Boosts per campaign and run up to 10 simultaneous campaigns.
The ‘Atlantic Is Heavy’ Anniversary Tee features the iconic Atlantic Records logo printed on the front of a white unisex t-shirt. This item is a part of Atlantic’s 75th Anniversary and is 100% ring spun cotton.
There are currently only a handful of RepostExchange hoodies and snapbacks in existence! Our hoodies are good quality, very comfortable, and with a decent-sized hood (big enough for headphones)! They come with the Re-Ex logo embroidered onto the left breast so you can let your fans, friends, and family know you’re part of our special club.
Why we liked TK’s take
The judges felt TK’s remix stood out for its expert sound design, particularly the layered bass during the second half of the drops, which, along with the use of anti-drops, created a compelling tension and release. Plus, the solid beat and effective use of filters marked this track as a definite winner!

Why we liked freddielineker’s take
The well-executed transitions really spoke to us and a nostalgic '90s bass sound during breaks, contrasting sharply with a heavier reese bass in the drops, creates a vibrant club vibe. Freddie’s remix is perfect for the summer!
