Basement Jaxx wants to collaborate with you

WHAT’S THE IDEA?

Basement Jaxx have a track called ‘Power to the People’ a Universal positive and empowering song about our interconnectedness. The lyrics express how when people come together, amazing things can happen. We are looking for people around the world to create versions of the song, in every language, in every musical style, celebrating the richness and diversity of humanity. All the versions will be able to be heard/watched/mixed together online on the Power to the People fm player.

It’s a non profit celebration of music and creativity. We want musicians, singers, dancers, filmmakers, and artists from all over the world to come together and create. We want to share your stories, encourage collaboration, inspire and have fun.

Our goal is to create and release a version of ‘Power to the People’ with the people of the world, on World Peace Day on 21st September 2014, all proceeds of which will go to charity.

WHAT WE’D LIKE YOU TO DO.

We’d like you to perform different versions of the “Power to the People” song and then send them to us. The song has been split into 4 stems/elements – The Vocal, the Chorus, the Drums/Bass and the Music. You can perform just one of the elements i.e. just the vocals or just the chorus, or all of the elements, it’s up to you.

In the coming weeks we will show the world your contributions, and once we have enough versions, that’s when the fun really starts, as people at home will be able to chose individual elements and create their own truly unique mixes of the song.

They’ll be able to bring vocals from one country together with music from another and visuals from even further away.

If you need help or have questions, please get in touch. Send us an email to info@powertothepeople.fm

If you know people who’d like to be involved please do spread the word, as the more people we connect with, the more we can do.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED.

SINGERS/MUSICIANS

Simply download the track and stems and record and film your contributions and then upload them through our website.

You can record your version in whatever style or language you want.

Our only stipulations are that you record your version at 120bpm and that it is the same duration as the “Power to the People Template” track. This is so we can put your versions together with other people’s version from around the world.

If possible it would be great if you can film your performance too or film yourself singing/dancing along with it.

DANCERS/PERFORMERS/FILM MAKERS/ARTISTS.

We’d love you to get involved too. Visuals are a huge part of this project and we’re looking for you guys to take the music and film yourselves bringing life to the spirit of the song. It doesn’t have to be filmed on professional equipment, it could even be filmed on a camera phone. The key is that you enjoy the process of making/performing/creating and you share it with us.

MORE INFO.

All versions will be shown on the PowertothePeople.fm website, and everyone will be credited. Each act will have a profile where they can tell the world about their story and their music.
