DOWNLOAD PLEASE LISTEN TO MY DEMOS VOL. 1 MIXTAPE,
PRESENTED BY HiPNOTT RECORDS, UNIQUE SQUARED, DUBCNN
AND MIXED BY DJ MARK-1
For Immediate Release: May 18, 2011
In promotion for the upcoming music documentary, DEMOS: An Independent Artist’s Guide To Success, we hosted a contest for independent artists to submit their “demo” for a chance to have their music included in our upcoming promotional mixtapes. Over 150 submissions were received and 36 artists won a spot. In addition, one track in particular won us over so much that we asked to have that song be included in the film’s official soundtrack (due later this year). Congratulations to Jacy Elizabeth for winning us over!
Please Listen To My DEMOS Volume 1, presented by HiPNOTT Records, Unique Squared and DubCNN, is mixed by DJ Mark-1 and features 18 of the 36 winners from the first leg of the contest. This mixtape represents independent hip hop at its finest! Volume 2 will be released in mid-June, followed by the second leg of the contest in July for independent artists to win a chance to be featured on volumes 3 & 4 of the mixtape series.
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 over 70 interviews (and still shooting), DEMOS features interviews with professionals from all sides of the music industry sharing experiences, advice and techniques for maximizing success in the music business. From understanding contracts, to brand management, music production, touring, merchandise, royalties, record labels, content distribution, and more, DEMOS is designed to transfer a comprehensive mix of industry and music knowledge to enhance the quality of life for those who live in a musical world.
