Win Signed Esperanza Spalding Vinyl

The jazz bassist Esperanza Spalding surprised a few people by winning The Grammy’s ‘Best New Artist’ over the big pop acts of 2011, which goes to prove one thing: Jazz ain’t dead. Neither is vinyl. The double LP version of Chamber Music Society is now available, and contains some special extras. Enter to win a *signed* copy of the vinyl for your own collection.

Besides all of the original tracks from the Chamber Music Society CD, the LP also includes audio commentary by Esperanza & song bytes from the recording sessions, and a sneak peek track (“Morning”) from her next 2012 release, Radio Music Society.

Tyson – “Out of My Mind”

Tyson – Out Of My Mind by PurplePR

Tyson, an unidentified, masked producer from the UK brought more hipstery 80s flashbacks early this year, with a single called “Die On The Dancefloor,” and now “Out Of My Mind.” Both are available on iTunes now and coming soon to vinyl.

Tyson’s comments on his music: “People forgot how to be stars… I’m trying to bring back authentic analogue music that sounds real. I wanted to make something horrible and very, very nasty, so when people heard it they would say ‘urgh’ but in a good way…”


Dotmatic – It’s Yours Vinyl + Contest

Dotmatic has been extremely busy in the studio cooking up some tasty treats. This year he has been featured twice on the Record Breakin’ Music 5 Year Anniversary compilation, released the first in a new series of seasonal projects with Lullabies for Winter, and now It’s Yours. All this and we are only three months into the year! Reminiscent of his highly acclaimed debut album The City, Dotmatic puts his own twist on hip-hop and soulful beats, all packed into a 45 vinyl record. Apparently a rather quiet fellow was able to sneak into the studio and copy some notes he left laying around that described the tracks on It’s Yours… Check them out after the jump.

Dotmatic gave us some wax to give away, so enter to win a copy of the It’s Yours 7″ single.
