Alright, the next Beatmaker “The Future of Music” Session is coming up on Thursday 20.03.2014 and we are already pretty stoked! Looking forward to play some new tracks and get down to some more live electronica! This month´s special L!VE Guest is theclosing!
“theclosing is a Vienna-based music and art group consisting of Daniela Auer, Alexander Hengl and Lukas Lehner. The three have been working together since 2004 towards the goal of making beguiling and original electronic music that evades easy genre classification and mixes analog and digital sources, including self-made samples, found sounds, and field recordings. The group’s debut release for Portland independent label Circle Into Square (partnerlabel with Fake Four Inc.) embraces a wide variety of influences.”
And not to forget, we also have a pretty great 30 min L!VE Slot in store (apply now to play at one of the upcoming Beatmaker Sessions)!
This is already a pretty exiting programme and tasty music diet! But guys, do you remember what we did the same time last year!!?? Right, “Beatmaker Tracks of the Season #1“! A contest to submit tracks to win an official Beatmaker release and goodies! More on the goodies and prices shortly. For now just understand the rules for “Beatmaker Tracks of the Season #2“: You can submit your own productions. Actually three of them, for the upcoming sessions in March, April and May 2014. So you got 3 chances to win! You ask what are we looking for? Well, we aren´t really looking for anything in particular! Just 3 awesome and winning tracks! ;) Anything goes. Well, not anything. Just don´t use samples or material you don´t have the rights for! It is a bit of a hustle to release the stuff on various streaming and download platforms. The decision will be made up of 60% jury judging and 40% fan votes (plays, shares, likes and such)!
So how to submit and get plays? Just upload your tracks on your soundcloud profile with the following title “TRACK NAME x BEATMAKER SESSIONS” and share it with us in form of a download link, not only to let us know, but also to be able to check out your track at the following Beatmaker Session. You can submit tracks anytime previous to one of our Beatmaker Sessions. Remember only upload one per session. So one within the next week for the March session (20.03.14), one within the next month preceding the April session (17.04.2014) and one within the time before the May session (20.05.2014). You get it, right? If not, just drop us a mail at info[at]smartguns.eu and we´ll try to sort it out. If you wanna know what happened last year check out the winning tracks HERE and other track submissions on our soundcloud playlist HERE!
Boom! Cu next week!
