In a nutshell.
In conjunction with THE ARCH, (Brighton, UK) and international Techno party throwers, and general all round sleep-thiefs INDUSTRY LONDON, HIDE + SEEK has a special opportunity for the right DJ / Act to mix the next release of their 12 track Various Artist compilation album ‘COMPILATION / RED’. PLUS the opportunity to play at the following Brighton club event!
The winner will join a rapidly growing roster of 16 international Artists, including the infamous RUSS YALLOP (Crosstown Rebels / Get Physical / VIVa) and JOE MESMAR (Ovum / Toolroom / De-Konstrukt), to name a few.
The competition is being held to raise the profile of the debut INDUSTRY event in Brighton..
It is open to holders of a valid ticket to the event. Attendance is encoraged but not compulsary.
HIDE + SEEKs VA Compilation series are individual tracks for sale plus a continuous mix by guest DJs. The previous album available here gained fantastic DJ support.
The prize is a full worldwide release of your mix of the album on HIDE + SEEK, sold in 240+ online stores (iTunes, Beatport, Traxsourse etc), alongside other big names who are signed to heavyweight labels such as Ovum, Crosstown Rebels, Naked Lunch and Bullet:dodge!
This is a fantastic opportunity for any DJ or Producer who wants to build their profile or maybe secure their Artist name in all the major record stores worldwide if you are just starting out. You will have your own artist page with picture in all the major stores, oh and the opportunity to throw down some Techno with the big boys at the following INDUSTRY LONDON event in Brighton (not compulsory) if you can step up and impress us ;)
