The year is new, young, fresh, and the possibilities abound. We are very excited to announce that beginning in February, Dub Narcotic Studio will be moving locations! Since 2006 it has occupied the first floor of the K office, a mysterious building disguised as an old synagogue, and now it is rising up, out of the basement and into the tall-ceilinged upper floor. Don’t get us wrong, the ground floor has been a wonderful setting for the recording of many beautiful and noteworthy albums, but we feel it will be doubly so in the larger room upstairs. In addition to the move, we are extending the chance for YOU to be one of the first to record in the new location– for FREE.
Here’s how it works:
The contest will take place over the next four weeks. In the first two weeks, we will be receiving youtube submissions via email up until January 31st. In the latter two weeks we will put all the videos on K‘s youtube channel and on Valentines Day, February 14, whichever video has the most views will win a free day of recording at Dub Narcotic Studio! So, make a video of you and/or your band playing a song that you’d want to record here, then once you’ve done that submit the link to firstname.lastname@example.org. It will be up to YOU to promote your self and your song once we put them on our channel.
But that is not all. The winner will have the option of including the voice of Mr. Calvin Johnson himself, who will sing backup or play melodica on the recording session of the winning entry!
Not within arm’s reach of Olympia?
This contest is intended for anyone and everyone. Even if you are too many states, oceans, or continents away, we still want you to submit! If the winner does end up being too far away to come in, we will gladly take either the project files of a track, or a stereo file and will mix and/or master it!
We are stoked to see what you all are doing musically, and look forward to working with you!
