After the attention and what I would call “success” of the last blindly judged mixtape competition, we decided to put a second one together. This time, with a bigger prize at the end – MOJOSTOCK!
It’s no secret that we do a lot of events and book a lot of talent over the course of the year. But we can admit there can be holes in the system in which we use to book said talent, and many budding artists and DJ’s could be getting overlooked. This is why we want to put together a Mixtape Competition, with blind judging, so there’s no playing favorites, no spam, no complaints. (Who am I kidding? There will always be complaints – but you get the idea).
Winning Mixtape will be awarded:
- Mojostock Booking (Main stage – Date/Time Slot TBD)
- Headlining slot at Altered Thurzdaze.
(on a mutually agreeable date once winner is selected)
- $100 cash
- Potential to open for a national act at one or more of Indymojo’s events.
(depending on coinciding music genre that makes sense for available headliners, mutual agreeable date, and some restrictions apply)
Second Place Prize:
– Mojostock Booking (2nd EDM stage – Date/Time Slot TBD)
– Altered Thurzdaze booking (date TBD)
Runner Up entries will be considered for future bookings as well.
We want to set a few simple guidelines:
1. Create a new mix (50-60 minutes in length).
All genres welcome – PLEASE NO TOP-40 commercial crap. Be creative. Don’t insert anything that will reveal identity, such as a name drop.
2. Put it on a CD/Audio quality disk. (Markings are ok, as I will burn blanks)
3. Give the disk to me (Matt Ramsey – You can find me at any Indymojo event) by March 21st. < ~ Deadline (Extended to the 21st)
*For regional mixes, contact me for mailing information.
Disks will be assigned a number and securely logged in for identification purposes after the judges have ranked them accordingly.
- Entries will be duplicated and given to 5 judges of various music tastes and experiences, who have no knowledge of the entry creators. Judges TBD.
- Judges will rank the entries based on track selection, originality, and technical ability.
- Winner will be announced by April 20th.
