Vinyl is thriving, you only need to look at it’s newfound place of supermarket shelves and the global success of Record Store Day to realise that. Whether you going it solo or part of a gang as big as So Solid Crew, anyone from any genre is invited to join the competition, all you need to do is upload your win-worthy track to BerwickStreetLondon.co.uk so the panel of experts can take a listen.
Judges include Primal Scream’s Simone Butler, NME’s new music editor Matt Wilkinson, House of St Barnabas & Blackheath festival Music Director Sav Remzi and Sister Ray’s Phil Barton.
The 10 finalists will be selected on 7th June and the public will get to have their say in the following fortnight, voting for the winner online. Whoever wins gets treated to recording, mastering and cutting the track in a London studio and one thousand copies of their track to be distributed throughout Soho record stores from September.
