Liverpool based Drum and  Bass label Sleep Less Records celebrates first birthday with competition to sign an unknown local artist

Liverpool record label Sleep Less Records has launched a competition to sign up a new drum and bass producer.

As part of a one year birthday celebration for Sleep Less Records, the independent record label - set up by former BBC Introducing artist MC SAS - the competition is a unique opportunity to be backed by a record label for an unsigned producer.

Talented producers can use music sharing website SoundCloud to upload their latest tracks and become part of the UK’s most exciting underground record label.

Once the biggest and best tracks are uploaded entrants will be able to promote their tracks on Facebook and other social media websites. The more buzz artists can create around their entries the more likely judges at the label will choose the producer for round two of the competition.

The competition is live now and the first round will run until the 20th May 2013. Successful entries in the first round will be invited to submit another track for the second round, with the second round’s winning track being released for free download.

MC SAS and the team at Sleep Less Records will then work with the signed act to produce and distribute a track later in 2013 as one of its fully signed drum and bass producers.

MC SAS is excited about the prospect of welcoming a new producer to the label: “We’re delighted to be offering a producer the chance to work with Sleep Less Records. We expect the standards to be high for our anniversary competition so entrants should make sure they only upload their best tracks.”

Fans can listen to the latest tracks as they are entered into the competition on the Sleep Less Records Facebook page or by joining the SoundCloud group.
