Congratulations Paul Dateh - Winner of Beat the Clock

Ableton and SoundCloud’s Beat the Clock competition drew an impressive number of quality entries. These tracks, made from start-to-finish within a 24-hour time limit, demonstrate the inspiring creativity and diverse musical visions of the Ableton and SoundCloud communities.
