Speedy J (Jochem Paap) is doing an interesting project that we really like. It goes by the name of Open Collabs, and it’s a sort of über-collaborative album where Speedy J will take the stuff you send him and work it into new pieces consisting of many small fragments provided by the community and Mr. Paap himself. The finished album will be release on his label Electric Deluxe, and profits will be shared with all artists appearing on it 50/50. If you want your material to be on the album, you must submit your parts before December 1st. So head over to the Open Collabs site to register! You can then discuss the project directly with Jochem over at our forum. There’s also a FAQ if you need to know more specifics.
Here are some examples of what you could send:
What’s really cool is that the entire process of creating this album is supported by SoundCloud. Speedy J uses the DropBox for receiving parts, the player to display the works in progress and the API to visualize the process of creation…
Needless to say, we’re really looking forward to hearing what comes out of this!
Btw, if you check out the Open Collabs DropBox, you’ll notice that it looks really fresh. That’s because he’s using a new feature that we launched today for PRO Max and Medium accounts called “branded DropBox”. It gives you full control of the appearance of your DropBox. If you have a PRO Max or Medium account you can enable it here. More on this coming soon!
