IT IS TIME TO GET VOTING!
So the entries are all in! Generation Next is a platform for exciting new Grime talent to be heard and we are excited to be able to give the producers their time to shine! Over 430 instrumentals were submitted and we need YOU to decide which ones are the most hype, have the dirtiest bass and are the most GRIMY! You can hear all the entries right now over at http://soundcloud.com/KeepinItGrimy
We would love it if you could pick your favourite 5 tracks and using the form below enter your vote! You have plenty of time to listen to as many of the tracks as you want because voting will run until December the 23rd. We want to make sure you don't miss any potential classic tracks and have enough time to listen to as many as possible. Remember you can only vote ONCE so make your choice carefully!
Why do we need your votes? The top 4 voted tracks will be released as an EP on digital format as well as limited edition vinyl! They will join a list of legendary names in Grime who have had releases on Earth616 such as Wiley, Maniac, Preditah, Teeza and J Sweet! And the overall winner will receive some extra bonuses....
The overall winner will receive a brand new pair of Beats PRO headphones, designed for sound engineers, musicians, and those who take sound seriously. They’re the headphones Lil Wayne uses in the studio, and are designed to deliver the same level of emotion and power the artist originally intended, making it perfect for any of you up and coming producers!
Also among our prizes, thanks to our friends at Image-Line, is the latest FL Studio Producer Edition. Used by such top rated producers as Teddy Music, Rude Kid and JME, the legendary music software (formerly known as Fruity Loops) has been a point of entry for producers throughout the history of Grime. That will surely continue as it helps our winning Generation Next entrant to make the genre's next game-changer.
Please enter your email address to vote in the form below and you can find an easy to navigate list of all the entries sorted alphabetically by Producer name. You can even click through to listen to the tracks using a direct link to the Soundcloud page they are hosted on just to make sure you are voting for the tracks you want! Remember you have until December 23rd to make your choice so take your time and listen to as many entries as you can!
And as a special THANK YOU for voting, we will be picking 10 voters at random and sending them out a limited edition KeepinItGrimy t-shirt in the size of their choosing!
