Accepting Submissions For Toronto to Detroit Mixtape

It’s been a few years since I’ve done this (with a couple projects that fell through in between), but it’s time that MCHH releases another mixtape (or compilation as I am no DJ). The idea for this one is Toronto to Detroit, so you K/W, London and Windsor people will want to pay attention, too.

The plan is to have around 20 tracks, with the majority (12-15) being by Toronto artists, of course, and with the goal of producing a mixtape monthly or bi-monthly. Future editions may or may not follow the same format. I may decide to switch cities. Or not. We’ll see how it goes.

Submissions will be open to everyone who lives in or between Toronto and Detroit. When submitting music, please send a download link so my inbox doesn’t fill up too quick. Also include your name, any featured artists, producer’s name, etc. WAV files are appreciated. Feel free to send 2-3 tracks that you’re trying to push if you can’t decide on one as I really don’t have time to listen to full albums to pick out tracks.

This mixtape will be made available for free, so keep that in mind when submitting tracks.

One other rule: no dubs. Original production only.

Also, for any visual artists/graphic designers who may be reading this, I will be looking for a cover this.

Submissions can be sent to megacityhiphop@gmail.com.

The deadline is April 21st.

As always, if there are questions, just ask.
