February 16, 2013 |  by  |  EVENTS, GIVEAWAYS  |  1 Comment

It’s All Star Weekend down in Houston this year. And it’s also the perfect time to let you know about Hoop Dream Ink, an eclectic blend of basketball and art. Decorate the walls, our yourselves with these high quality works of art depicting The ’94 Knicks, Shawn Kemp, D.Rose, MJ and the Durantula…just to name a few. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.

Bout time you took down that Independence Day poster off your wall from 1996 and started classing up your space. Especially if you still live with your mom. You at least need to have some art if you haven’t moved out.

We asked them to do a little sale, so the whole store is marked down 10% for the duration of the All Star festivities!

Check them out here: Hoop Dream Ink

YHTN: New Years Beat Battle Finals

December 30, 2011 |  by  |  CONTESTS, LET THE BEAT BUILD  |  77 Comments

Clearly we should do this more often. We had almost 100 submissions, which equates to me having to listen to almost 200 beats. It was great fun, and there are some super talented producers out there. Just to be transparent the key things I was looking for besides “hotness”:

  1. Did it sound real? There is a sound that feels right, like someone could actually hop on this and make something that didn’t sound like someone just exported an 8 bar Fruityloops loop. This has a lot to do with drums that actually fit the track, and synths and samples being properly tempo synced.
  2. Is it rap/singable? Basically could someone make a song from this. Are the bars formatted in a way that makes sense?
    example: intro/chorus/verse/chorus/verse/chorus/bridge/halfverse/chorus/chorus/outro
  3. Can a vocal actually sit in this somewhere?
  4. Is the mix decent? A lot of producers can’t mix. Learn to mix. People want to hear the fullness of your records.
HOW TO VOTE
Voting closes 12:01 AM on Monday, Jan 2nd. The winner will be posted at Noon EST on Monday.
To vote leave a comment on this post in this format:
1. Your first Place beat use the beat name (3pts)

YHTN Beat Battle Open Submissions

December 29, 2011 |  by  |  CONTESTS, INSTRUMENTALS, LET THE BEAT BUILD  |  No Comments

 

UPDATE: Tons of entries… wow. We’re now closed! Check tomorrow at Noon to see the picks, and to vote.

I was looking around and no one has been offering any outlet to producers lately on mainstream sites. Production is 70% of a song these days, so I figure let’s get some instrumental action on YHTN. Tomorrow we’ll do a New Years beat battle. Here’s the deal:

  1. Producers of the world submit two (2) of your beats in MP3 format to beats@youheardthatnew.com
  2. They have to be submitted by Midnight EST on December 29th, 2011 (Today).
  3. I will listen to all of them (for real I promise) and will pick 5 beats by 5 different producers for the YHTN readership to vote on tomorrow.
  4. The voting will last all weekend and the winner will be announced at Noon EST on Monday, January 2nd.
Prizes!
  • The 1st place winner will get a $25 iTunes or Amazon Giftcard (Winner’s Pick) and automatically get his or her beat placed in the next competition.
  • 2nd place will probably get clowned in the comments.
  • 3rd place should just be happy to be here.
Small details: Do not have anyone rapping on them, I will not be putting your crew on today. Don’t send me a hulkshare link, send me the MP3. Feel free to Tag them up if you want, but unless the tags are somehow awesome this will probably make me hate the track. You can send less than 2 (1) but not more than 2 beats.
For all the readers voting will be explained in the competition post tomorrow. Now send me some ear candy… I got these Beats headphones for Christmas and I want to hear the magic. – Tom (@tmcleod3)
