Booooooom Reader Submissions: November

november-600

Here is this month’s submission post! Thanks to everyone who submitted work to the October Reader Submissions post I’m still going through all the great stuff in there.

For those of you who are new around here, this is the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Please do not send in your work via email, my inbox can’t handle the hundreds of submissions each month.

Thanks again to everyone for up-voting work you like and leaving the positive comments to each other, it really pumps people up, and helps me see what work you like. I encourage you to share your work here because these posts get a lot of traffic and even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen, and definitely sends traffic to your own websites.

Please share your work here this month. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

Submission guidelines:

1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.

Here is this month’s submission post! Thanks to everyone who submitted work to the September Submissions post. As always, I get pumped up when I see everyone leaving positive comments on each other’s work! Great job everybody.

In case you’re new here, this is the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Up-vote work you like as it really encourages artists in this community and helps me see what kind of work the readers like. I encourage you to share your work here because these posts get a lot of traffic and even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen, and definitely sends traffic (and hopefully new fans) to your own websites.

The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website. Don’t post an image larger than 1mb, sometimes our system rejects it altogether so if you want to make sure your submission goes through submit a web resolution image!

Download While You Can: All The Booooooom Mixes

At some point during the summer Soundcloud decided to remove most of my mixes from their site (I’ve since removed the rest). It’s a bummer because I wasn’t trying to make any money off of the music, I was just doing it for the fun of sharing something with you guys!

A few people noticed the mixes disappeared and tweeted about getting the mp3s so I’ve made a zip of pretty much all the mixes that you can download here.

Just a heads up, the last two are more rappy and have a lot of bad language.

I mix the music using Ableton which is pretty much cheating but it’s really fun. I might make a new one and share it through a service like Mixcloud. In the meantime grab those mixes; I don’t know how long I’ll keep them up, and probably won’t share them ever again.

Booooooom Exclusive Mix & Interview: Tele Fresco

TELE-FRESCO-600
 

West Coast producer on the rise, Tele Fresco, put together a fantastic mix for us which you can stream or download below (download it while you can).

When I discovered his rework of Travi$ Scott’s Upper Echelon I pretty much listened to everything on his Soundcloud. It’s only a matter of time before this guy really breaks through. I did a short online interview with him a couple weeks ago, so while you’re listening you can learn a little bit more about him! Enjoy.

Vancouver Event: Sports Day

sportsday

Heads up Vancouver, we’re teaming up with our friends at lululemon lab, Juice Truck, Tight Club, Culver City Salads, and Distrikt Movement to put on a really fun summer event!

On July 11th, 4 communities will converge at the ruins of the 1951 Empire Games bicycle track, now known as China Creek North Park, for the first ever & maybe never again — SPORTS DAY: Hood Vibes Only.

On this day, Hoods will battle it out for the coveted blue, 1st place ribbon and bragging rights in an elementary school styled, semi-athletic competition for neighbourhood supremacy (aka just for fun).

Find a team, make a name, find a mascot, grab your old pinnies from elementary school, register, cancel all appointments, and get ready for a day of mind games, tug-of-war, run relays and of course beers.

With your ticket you get: a salad, a juice, 2 beers, a chance to compete in all competition, live DJ all afternoon, access to the beer garden.

Sign up for the event here.
