New IDMf Netlabel Comp! Submissions OPEN!
As 2020 plods well into it’s third month, there have been some noticeable changes: birds are out in full force trying to get their birdy groove on, the rain is getting warmer, nobody stands near each other even if none of them are gassy, and there has been a meteoric drop in the rate of TP related vandalism across the globe.
But there is one change above all others that has been tickling the brains of your netlabel team. A far older, more subtle and yet constant evolution that is so fundamental and yet so wide in scope that your humble netlabel team has not been able to come to a full understanding of it all. To this end, we need your help. Please join us in our efforts to quantify for all time:
Oh look, an arrow! I bet we should click it!
What is IDM in 2020?What does this venerable genre mean to you personally in the year 2020?
How has it changed, how has it stayed the same?
What makes a track undeniably IDM after all these years?
Answers will only be accepted in song form. You have 6 weeks (due date midnight May 1st) to deliver your sonic response to the netlabel team via the usual channel (email@example.com). Please also refer to our submission guidelines. Tracks will be reviewed by a larger, more distinguished group this time around: the mod team is onboard and will participate in the decision making processes. Bring your A-game folks: we will only release a comp if we have enough tracks of good quality to do so.
EDIT: So I totally had the wrong email address in there for submissions…writing copy like a boss over here. Fixed, and will be extra-posted below for visibility
