Please Listen To My DEMOS Mixtape Contest Winners

About a month ago we held a contest for unsigned, independent artists to submit their “demo” to us for inclusion on our upcoming mixtape in support of the film, DEMOS: An Independent Artist’s Guide To Success.  The contest was nothing short of a success as we received over 150 entries from artists all over the world within as little as three weeks.  Out of the 150+ entries, we broke it down to 36 demos that we felt were good enough to make it on our 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.

Hit the jump to see if you made the cut… and if you didn’t, you’ll have another opportunity again this summer when we open up the contest again for Volumes 3 and 4 of the mixtape series!
