"I give you my number, you call me up"
one of the coolest things about the notorious xx spreading the way it did is that I’ve gotten some really awesome notes from people who have checked it out and told their friends about it. I’ve been working on a new mixtape called this is real life (more details soon), and as part of it, I’m embarking on a new idea -- sampling your voice for the intro to the record. so here’s how it works:
1. call me up! 347-WTWHT-01 (which is 347-989-4801)
2. leave a voicemail (all calls go straight to vm) about whatever you want: what you thought of the notorious xx, what type of music you like, how your summer’s going -- it’s all fair game . it’d be cool if you said the name of the mixtape -- this is real life -- and if you left your name and where you’re from.
3. I’ll sift through the voicemails and sample a couple of them to make the intro (and maybe some skits) for the new mixtape.
be creative, funny, enthusiastic -- have fun with it! i’m trying to get a collection of voices to start the record on the right foot, so being psyched for what you’re talking about can really help. if you leave me a message, include your email (I won’t sample your full email address) and I’ll send you the link to download the new record before it’s released to the public.
that’s pretty much it -- you can leave more than one if you want, and I’ll be going through them around august 9, so try to get them in by then. also, by leaving the voicemail, you acknowledge that I have the right to sample the message (or parts of it) that you leave. I won’t include any private information in any of the samples. unfortunately, there’s no monetary reward for contributing a voicemail, though I will send you the download link for the new record early if you include your email (either in the message or email me -- waitwhat (at) waitwhatmusic (dot) com -- after leaving a message). typical calling rates apply (it’s a new york area cell phone number).
thanks guys -- really looking forward to hearing what you submit!
