3 Days to Go...Submit Your Mixes



Folks,

It's down to the wire for the LeBron 23-23 contest. If you've got a mix, and you want a chance to be heard by LeBron James, Paul Wall, Al Fatz, Atlantic Records - then submit your mix now.

Hit up your family - moms, pops, cousins that ain't really your cousins - anybody that can click a widget or enter a cap code on the site.

We've confirmed the judging panel for the top 100 mixes. It's high level marketing and A&R from Atlantic Records - I can't drop the names now cause I don't want ya'll beggin for a record deal - but we always roll big at Sprite. We've got Paul Wall's manager, T. Farris. We've got a couple cats from our ad agency - Crispin Porter + Bogusky. If ya'll don't know about getting T&R off of commercials, you need to go back and study - easiest money in the music game.

I'm serious about this competition. Step up your game up for it.

On another note, I see some cats are bootlegging my shoes on the Internet. B@$T@RDS!!! How are you gonna sell my shoes for $850 online!!! It took us 6 months to get those made...Some people are really willing to pay big bucks to be exclusive - when we have 10 pairs sitting in a closet here. LOL

Anyway, hit me up with any last minutes questions...

What can I say. Gotta push like hell this weekend to be in that top 100. Maybe you could throw those 10 pairs out to the top 10 picks among the judges? They'd be a great consolation prize.

I gotta get back to promoting my track The CrossOver. Always feel free to click my name, or take a listen here http://www.myspace.com/do1productions

LeBron, this contest is a great opportunity for us unknown producers working under the radar. I've been in the game for awhile and I appreciate you and Sprite for reaching out to the masses! It's a lot of talent out here, but you won't know unless you look!
A rose can grow from concrete, and you can call "Rip One" a diamond in the rough! Holla at your boy!

That's a good idea. I was thinking the same thing. The 10 pairs of shoes could go to the 4th-13th place finishers. The top 3 are gonna have their songs on tv to be heard worldwide, so that would be a good consolation for the 10 below those 3. How about it admin?

Maybe have the judges sign them...it would be a great momento of the contest.

LuckySoL said...

Boy oh boy do I feel stupid..haha When I heard track submission, I got on my ish right away and started composing. Then I realized that I had to do it on the site with the mixer...haha

I think its an awsome idea to throw out to people. Granted I wish the video was on the track page, so that listeners have something to see considering thats what your composing the track to. Thanks for the oppertunity at hand. Hope to see you guys at the top, if it's not here, then through other chances!

David Thanks for clarifying the top positions. I think it's a great idea for them to be signed too..at least by LeBron if no one else.

luckysol I agree with seeing the ad, while listening to the track, as it's made specifically for it. I think mine can be appreciated more when you can see the action. Wonder if the judges will listen and watch.

We are down to the wire now...

Good luck everyone. I've also been pushing it hard in social communitites, YouTube, and my blog to get more votes.

All the best.

"If ya'll don't know about getting T&R off of commercials, you need to go back and study - easiest money in the music game."

What is T&R? And is it like Mojo. How do I get some? Or, have I lost it? Please explain T&R.

I hope the judges would listen to each track instead of based on the votes. Cos it would be unfair for new submitted mixes.

Lebron PLZZZ help me. I have a beat but cant enter it.
I emailed the assistance and they sent me nuthin but the overview. I got a Sprite cap and G646 was the code . I dont know how to enter my beat in the contest off of that 1 code.Plz email me at Latchkyboy@aol.com helping me. or my username is latchky if u can jus listen to it

josh said...

I don't know if anyone else ran into my problem but every time i save my mix.... when i got to submit , it drop's off all the drum tracks after 16 bars that have automation???

man i hope next year there is a more complex studio mixer and the automation can save correctly:(

but this contest in general was a cool idea and i really liked a lot of the samples......

i would promote my mix on myspace but only if the mix was saved the way i recorded it .

mabey now that im signed up i will jump on future contests sooner.

Admin,
Where can we see the 24-100 places on votes?
I didn't get my mix in until a week and a half ago but between my great friends and amazing family got almost 800 votes in the last week from word of mouth and spreading the link via email. If any of you have a chance check out my mix under D-LO from the DJ search... I guarantee I am one of the top mixes and hope to see many of you in the next round if I make it!! Good Luck

T & R = Talent & Residuals. It's a pool of money that gets set aside for actors, musicians, composers for each time a TV commercial or broadcast show is ran. Basically, do a couple of days of work and collect a check for everytime that spot is run.

We can check every track in the Listen Lab. We see who the top 100 are and it's close at the bottom of the list...VERY CLOSE

emes said...

I also would like to know where the 24-100 vote getters are so that I know where i am at. ETERNALLYBALLN is my DJ name and I would like to know where I am at

Ohhhhhhhhh! Thanks for clarifying T&R and helping me with my homework.:)

On a happier note. Since I am at the bottom of the heap, will I win a fudge brownie or a gift certificate off of McDonalds' dollar menu? Holla.

Do 1 said...

Well, since this is winding to an end here..I just had a few thoughts...

As you want this ad or track to appeal to the masses, the next contest you have, you may want to consider doing something like limiting number of votes per IP address for widgets, kind of like the limited votes per site. I have seen that type of voting before.

It seems you might get a better sense of what tracks appeal to the public. I think at this point it will be hard to determine because one person may be massively promoting,and get a couple of thousand votes from various people, but one person may have themselves and 2 friends vote for themselves and their buddy for hours on end.

Just a suggestion if you have plans down the line. It will be sad if the judges have to listen to lets say 75 tracks that are not that good, but had someone able to vote a million times, and then only actually have 25 really good tracks. I'm not implying the top 75 tracks are not good.. I didn't listen to all of em, too busy trying to promote myself.

No sour grapes on my behalf. I am glad I had the opportunity, and wish the top 100 the best of luck..if by chance I sneak in by a hair..then good luck to me too..

I also got to check out a lot of other producers, beat makers, etc. who left links, so that was a good thing too....Thanks again for the opportunity..

I wanna thank LeBron, Sprite, Paul Wall, Perion, and the rest of the crew for giving the unheard a voice, and us crabs at the bottom of the barrel a chance to shine! I've listened to several tracks in the Listen Lab and I'm impressed with the talent that's bubbling up and ready to overflow! This was a great opportunity to not only display talent, but to also network with other producers across the globe, and I've made a few friends along the way! So let me say this to my fellow producers, let's stay in touch and continue to support one another. Remember, a win for one is a win for all! Holla at your man!
