Jochem Paap, aka Speedy J, wants to make an album that represents not just him, but the global techno community.
He’s using SoundCloud to create a new global techno project, and he wants you to contribute. He’s ask you to sen him a cool loop, sample, bassline, sound effect to him via his SoundCloud dropbox. I’ve embedded examples of what he is looking for above.
Speedy J will use the input as the raw material for his next album. The project will be released on his label Electric Deluxe and the collectivisation approach will also trickle down through the album?s profits, which will be split 50/50 with all the artists that appear on the album.
It’s a cool concept for an album, and an interesting use of SoundCloud.
