**SUBMISSIONS CLOSED** IDMfBT001: Electronic Hip Hop/LA Beat Scene

THE SUBMISSION PERIOD IS NOW CLOSED!
__________________________________________

Hey folks,

It's time to take the this project to the next step and kickstart this thing with the hip hop beat tape!

This project is inspired by the LA beat scene that has emerged over the recent years, but I urge us to expand on what has been laid out already and come up with something truly original. A tradition of a hip hop beat tape is to feature short songs but lots of them. In terms of style/vibe, FunkMasterBrown and I envision a compilation with beats that are wonky, funky, sometimes spacey, sometimes grounded but most importantly, warm and crackling. We may have to rely heavily on synths but feel free to throw in a few virtual instruments such as keys, strings and horns.
I know we can do this

Now before I jump into the rules let me start off with one of the most important ones: NO COPYRIGHTED SAMPLES!

Hip Hop Beat Tape Guidelines:

-all members can submit a maximum of two full tracks and one interlude.

-all tracks must be between 2-3 minutes long, with 30 second leeway. I strongly urge all of you not to venture too far out of the time limit.

-we are also looking to have a few interludes in the beat tape. the interludes must be between 30-45 seconds. they are not necessary but if you wish to do one, we will select a few to be featured on the release.

-if you wish to do a remix, you are allowed to but as long as it is of an IDMf member's. This falls under the no copyrighted rule.

General Submission Rules:

-all tracks must be shared privately to the sublabel's dropbox here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
.
tracks that are not to be shared publicly and participants will be disqualified if so.

-all tracks must be submitted in WAV format minimum 44100/24bit sample rate.

-minimum -3db Headroom with nothing on the master bus.

-label your track filename with your artist name, forum username and track title. please also put in brackets if it is an interlude.

-inlcude a contact e-mail in the track information, along with a clear indication that it is for the hip hop beat tape.

-oh yeah, and NO COPYRIGHTED SAMPLES!!!


The deadline for all submissions will be August 31, 2012 (WITH NO EXTENTIONS)


Please make sure that you have followed all of the guidelines for submitting these tracks, it would be a shame to lose some due to carelessness.

On another note, feel free to discuss possible names and ideas for artwork.



Good luck to everyone and I look forward to seeing what we come up with

Definitely gonna give this a go. Been a while since I've pumped out some hiphop beats I was satisfied with. Here's hoping. Should be fun.

Re: **SUBMISSIONS OPEN** IDMfBT001: Electronic Hip Hop/LA Beat Scene

since brainfucked got started with some sexy art, i suppose i should throw out a few name ideas i have had for this release.
i did come up with Orbital LA but .mute said it may be lame to give a straight up shout out like that. came up with Westcoast In Orbit, a bit more subtle
IF we do go with one of those, i was thinking of having a silhouette of the city skyline on a floating rock in space (upon a nebula so you can actually see it). space ftw

just pulling ideas out of my ass and throwin em at ya guys

i know this will sound stupid, but i made a ambient~sounding track, but i used some hip-hop beat

will that work?

@Qianta: perhaps but have a listen to the examples i posted up and see if it would fit with those. if not right away, maybe work on it a bit more? also, the track must not have been shared publicly (just mentioning that).

@WillyZi: glad to see the enthusiasm thanks for joining up!

I just want to say, publically; big thanks to Kong for getting this shit off the ground and giving the community another avenue to get their music heard.

Not submitting anything for this one 'cause hip hop ain't my thing but, best of luck to all artist participants.
