Remix the Theme — Now It's Your Turn

The current Ear Hustle theme song was produced by the Swedish phenom David Jassy, but it started with an original version written by Antwan Williams, and over the years it’s been changed up a few times. Now, it’s your turn to take a crack at a remix, a rendition, a resemblance of our theme — give it your twist and make it yours.

Download elements below to remix the Ear Hustle theme. Then, email it to us at, and we might just play it on a later episode. Remixes are due by August 31.
