Please Listen To My DEMOS Mixtape Contest Winners are announced!
The winners to Kevin Nottingham’s ‘Please Listen To My Demos Mixtape Contest‘ have now been announced!
DEMOS is a documentary film intended to educate and inspire emerging music artists by providing insight on ways to establish and further their careers. Narrated by Grammy award-winning hip hop poet J Ivy, DEMOS features an eclectic mix of industry veterans, established artists such as Talib Kweli, Pete Rock and CL Smooth, DJ Quik, Naughty by Nature, Mac 10, Marley Marl, Rapper Big Pooh, Da Beatminerz, Jean Grae, Statik Selektah, DJ Rhettmatic, Shyheim, Dwele, and up-and-coming artists like Mac Miller, J Davey, Wax, and Dumbfoundead.
With 150+ entries, submissions were broken down to 36 demos that were deemed good enough to make it on the mixtape. The 36 will be split into two volumes, with 18 tracks making it onto Volume 1 (which should be released next week) and 18 tracks for Volume 2 (for release in mid June). The first mixtape is currently being mixed by HiPNOTT Records’ in-house DJ Mark-1 and will be presented by Unique Squared & DubCNN.

And for those that didn’t make it this time around, don’t stress it, you’ll get another shot this summer when we open up the contest again for Volumes 3 and 4 of the mixtape series.
