CONTEST: Best of Greenleaf Music

It’s contest time again. Due to the overwhelming response to our Dave Douglas Mixtape contest this past summer, we’ve decided to hold another mix tape contest of sorts. And this time, we might press a Best of Greenleaf Music Volume 1 on vinyl based in part on your submissions. No one knows our catalog better than the community we have here. So take a moment and read the rules / requirements below.


Contest
Rules / Requirements

+ Submit (2) Sides (A / B) with your picks of the best tracks from the Greenleaf catalog via the Comment Section of this post
+ Each side can be no more than 20:59 in length (no exceptions!)
+ You choose the tracks
+ Your tracklist must include more than two Greenleaf artists
+ Tracks must be taken from the Greenleaf catalog (in other words, albums on other labels by the same artist do not count)
+ Submissions close October 16th

How the contest works.

At the end of the scheduled time frame, we will tally up how many
times each track was used from each list. The most chosen tracks will be put into a pool of music with picks from our artists. We will generate the final tracklist in house and release an extremely limited pressing on vinyl.

Digital files will also be released, and free with purchase of your vinyl copy and as always, to our subscribers.

Prizes.

Five randomly-chosen people who submit their Best of Greenleaf list will receive one of the Limited Edition LP’s signed by all Greenleaf artists on the album.

Each person who submits will have their full name credited in the liner notes (unless anonymity is your thing).

Best of luck. We’re looking forward to seeing your list.

  7. Thinking about this contest and hearing this music on vinyl…to be honest I would love to get something like keystone or moonshine on vinyl…I think that of everything on the label, that would be one of the most refreshing sounds to hear on my turntable.

  8. Always wanted to do the Dog Star / Kitten 7″. Maybe one day. But as these lists are indicating, this will be a great start to the Greenleaf vinyl catalog.

    Thanks, Matt.

  14. Seems like “Bowie” must make it onto the record from the audience’s point of view. Will be interesting to see if it’s still in the game after the artists brought in their own picks…
