7 artists from the Nextpop/Innersong stable are taking part in an event co organised by the labels and the 2Track.pro portal, which is owned by Bogdan Kondracki - musician from the cult act Kobong and record producer of among others Brodka & Dawid Podsiadło. The competition will end with the releasing of a digital album of the winning reworkings of 10 tracks by: BOKKA, Fismoll, Kari, Oly., Baasch, Milky Wishlake & Lari Lu.
Bogdan Kondracki imagined a place where composing musicians and vocalists from the whole world could find one another and start creative collaborations. That is how, in his head, the idea for creating the 2Track portal was born, a portal which at this moment already has around 1000 hits daily as well as over 650 registered users from 60 countries. Vocalists are searching for good music, and musicians and producers interesting vocals, which together with their instrumental tracks they can use to create songs - 2Track gives them the opportunity of finding someone to musically collaborate with, irrespective of whether they are from Poland or the other side of the world. It is built around original online technology which creates 2 mini music sessions, specifically on two tracks: One is the music and the second - vocals or an instrument. It is also possible to upload a completed song on two tracks, music and vocals, which then gives others the possibility of singing to the instrumental track or the producers composing to the vocals.
From the very beginning 2Track enjoyed popularity which is being further increased by new users, who can, without any charge, login to the portal, upload their music or record to existing tracks. Promising projects are being created by artists with no prior contact, the competition section is also starting to blossom. Not long ago a competition which consisted of creating and recording an original instrumental track to The Dumplings Tide of Time vocals finished. Almost 70 versions were submitted, all of a very high standard.
This competition for new versions of Nextpop/Innersong artists’ tracks will last two months (22 November 2016 to the 22 January 2017), at the end of which a jury will decide on the 10 winning submissions, which will make it onto a digital album released by the label. The organisers, with the support of sponsors, have also planned additional prizes: an audio interface, a weekend stay for 2 in the Mazury region, as well as 10 six month subscriptions to TIDAL.
2Track is equally interesting to users who don’t create music, these users often get the chance to listen to new, unpublished elsewhere, songs featuring their favourite artists, they can comment on and discuss them with other fans.
Competition details and regulations are available at: www.2track.pro and www.musicandsons.com
