Dead Famous Acid Contest & FREE MUSIC!

It's no secret that we at Dead Famous HQ love acid drenched music. Long is the time that over 50% of dance music that was released was heavily helped by the Roland 303. Lately, there are a number of labels really trying to push the acid sound that was so prevalent 15 years ago, and as many of you know, Dead Famous is one of them. In the spirit of bringing it back, we're holding a contest all centered around, you guessed it - ACID.

We at Dead Famous are looking for new acid producers, The prize? We're offering a release with Dead Famous Recordings to the producer who turns us in the best acid inspired tune. That said, while we are breakbeat focused, by no means do all entries have to be breaks. We encourage everything from house and breaks, to techno, or dubstep - whatever! The only rule is that it must use acid. How much is up to the producer, but it must be present. Between us, and a few other great labels, we are all working hard to bring this sound back to the forefront...and discard a few brain cells along the way.

*The winner's tune will see a release on Dead Famous Recordings over the next year.

*All entries must be sent to us in 320 format by September 30th, 2009. Please email entries to [email protected]

*All genres welcome - but note the types of music we release. While you may like your 180 bpm acid gabber tune, the chances of us releasing it are not great.

*Entries are allowed to contain known material, however - we're not trying to release a bootleg here, so use discretion, and be clever about how you do it. (we understand that sometimes things just fit in context), No Lady Gaga remixes with heaps of acid, please.

*All entries must contain acid. In what form, and how much is up to the producer, but the more it melts our face off, the better a chance you have.

And now for free music. We're big fans of giving back to the people that have supported Dead Famous over the years, and for that reason, have decided to give away the Ghosts in the Machine bootleg of dj Spooky's "Stereo" from a few years back that up till now was only available on vinyl. We will be making a habit of giving back to everyone in the form of free music in the coming months, so definitely watch this space.

Grab the bootleg HERE

Good luck to everyone who enters, and we look forward to hearing what everyone's got!

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
