How to enter
For the past 20 years Dazed & Confused have been championing mixes from the world's most exciting new artists, producers, labels and DJs. In the past month alone we have featured selections from Chicago house head Tevo Howard, the intergalactic sounds of Brainfeeder records and the bass heavy Numbers-signed Kodiak, to name a few. Now, in collaboration with Sonos, we present the Evolution of Listening, a new mix tape competition giving you the chance to share your hottest 20 minute music selections with the world. Helping us to unearth the biggest mixes are some of the world's most exciting DJs, including: Andy Votel, techno shapeshifter Actress, new wave, italo and house expert Veronica Vasicka and The 2 Bears' Raf Daddy. Sonos are forging the way for at-home music systems and changing the way we listen. We're looking for mixes that reflect that sense of evolution, that show an ever-changing experience of music. Mixes can be from a specific time period or genre, but must meet this criteria if they're to be successful. The winner will be invited to create a new mix to be featured as the Dazed mix of the month, be profiled online, plus have their home kitted out in £1000 worth of Sonos gear. Sonos and Dazed are interested in showcasing emerging artists, DJs and producers; whatever the genre.
