Artists from Melbourne will collaborate on a project dubbed Melbourne Representz, coming June 2011.
The project comes from the production house that conceived the 64barchallenge mix series, where contributors submit a track at an elected tempo, 64 bars in length. It’s then up to a DJ to piece it all together to form a coherent mix.
And now Melbourne becomes the second city to embrace the concept, after artists in Cardiff kick-started the concept last week.
Already signed up for the gig is Becy. She has submitted tracks for both the fourth and fifth 64barchallenge mixes, and revealed why she wanted to play her part in organising the mix.
She said: Representz is a creation of an entirely new piece of work, collaboratively, cross-genres not a track, not a set, but something else.
“It’s a unique way to meet and interact with new people.
And Becy, who released on Vim records earlier this year explained how the creative process differs because of the rules of the project. “You can have an intense little nugget of creativity without the long process of creating a track, so it can be a bit spontaneous.”
Other names who’ve committed to the project include Ehsan Gelsi, Evan Sparks, Kultrun ,Enclave, Funkedub, John King, Pat Stormont, Komplex, all well known names in Melbourne.
To vote for a tempo, use the poll below. Voting closes on March 1, 2011 and the mix is expected in June.
