Some of us guys thought we could use another project to help us all be creative, and we came up with this.



You have the whole of February to make 1 EP containing up to 15 tracks at a max total length of 15 minutes. Anybody is allowed to submit any content under any artist name, provided it's your own material, not offensive and not OLD material! No folder dumps! There are no genre restrictions, make anything you want.



If you are stumped for ideas, message me and I will send you two randomly selected words, and the combination must be the title of your EP. The rest is up to you.



Submit your EP in a ZIP to me, either as a private message or to mikewestaudio (at) gmail.com , together with all relevant info, before March 1st.



The final result will be compiled into one MASSIVE digital release - including top of the line mastering, provided that you don't brickwall your tracks. It will be available as pay-what-you-want and ALL proceeds will be donated to the international charity Medicines Sans Frontieres / Doctors Without Borders.




So, what excuses have you got? Try something new out, challenge yourself, just do some music. Let's go!

I've cross-posted this to a couple other forums and the response is getting big in a very short time! Labels are showing interest in getting their roster on board! Get in on this if you haven't already!

 

 

I was going to take part in the RPM Challenge this month, but I may do this too.

 

Some of us were interested in that too but they need a physical copy and not everybody's too keen on that, so this is a bit of an alternative. Would love to recieve a submission from you in any case!

Currently we have about 30 artists involved in this, and the bandcamp site will be up and running soon. If you know anybody who would want to join in, try to spread the word. I'm also looking for people who would be interested in aiding with compiling the final playlist, as well as illustrators who would like to contribute cover art and design.

....illustrators who would like to contribute cover art and design.

 

Make the artists responsible for providing the artwork together with the tracks before the deadline, otherwise it will be another waiting game. Waiting for the illustrators to come through after all the tracks are already mastered and uploaded.

Right now the most feasible option seems to be to compile everything into a single album release (like the Touched compilations etc), and in that case there will be no artwork for individual albums. The alternative is a list of each release but that defeats the point of having a single community project and a single page for downloading and supporting - I'm not looking to start another label or website domain. I'm thinking more of a general design of the whole thing, the bandcamp header and a cover picture - it will be taken care of one way or the other but I'd like to see talented people take a crack at it if they're interested.

 

If enough people provide artwork of their own releases, the cover art will be a mosaic of those. There will be no design-related delays or anything like that - the one exception is mastering & quality control in case the turnout becomes much bigger than anticipated and the majority submits their work right at the deadline. I hope no one takes that as a disincentive to contribute!

 

I'm currently contacting MSF headquarters to approve this for their Vital Pact program which would make for some neat logos and stuff. Fingers crossed!

Apparently Bandcamp has cover art as well as track-by-track artwork so there'll be one global cover image for the whole release, but everybody who submits artwork will have it embedded in their individual submission.

 

We also have a facebook page now! Design is placeholder while I wait for MSF headquarters to respond with official approval for some neat logos and stuff, but get in here for recent updates and like the page, whatever.

      Hello there!
      As the title describes, a dear friend/producer of mine and I started a record label/community to promote music as a group.
      The idea came to our minds while discussing about the diverse and awesome musicians we find almost by accident, how artists of less popular genres don´t get the exposition we believe they should, and also the fact that we tend to move our music (that´s our perception) as lone wolves.
      So we didn´t think twice, made use of our enthusiasm (and some skills we learned throught the years) and developed an identity, designed a website, launched a blog and started to contact fellow artists too see if there´s people interested in joining us.
      The name of the project is aquí yacen records, the spanish expression to say "here lie the records". 
      You can check our website right here: www.aquiyacen.com  And this is an article with more information: www.aquiyacen.com/post/welcome-to-aqui-yacen We´re looking for artists who like what we´re doing and feel motivated to take part. It is free, no agreement and you would owe us nothing. Our earning and yours is to meet new cool artists and working with them to improve at what we do.
      Thank you for reading!

      Hello watmm.
       
      I have been toiling away with making my own zine, based on electronic musical things. I was looking for zines that talked about techno / idm / noisy musical bollocks but didnt find any, so I decided to start one.
       
      I am fairly happy with how issue 1 has turned out and I have had some positive feedback thus far, but I want to get more copies out to my target audience.... probably you lot.
       
      So the first bunch of people to send me their address will get a copy, regardless of worldwide location yo! PM please and I promise not to share your address with anyone (yada yada data privacy etc...)
       
      Brief synopsis:-

       
      If you are at all interest in my project, I would consider submissions for Issue 2 (to be printed circa October 2016), especially artwork (which is my weak point) but anything else too.

      Made this with no intention at all, turned out fun to work on.

      I think making a singular thread to share my music is more tidy and less intrusive.
      Here's a couple new tracks I'm somewhat proud of:
