Flip Flops - Femalehiphop.net - netlabel: call for beats

From femalehiphop.net:

This is what you have been waiting for: to release one of your homemade tracks on our new netlabel called femalehiphop.net. For our first release "Flip Flops - The Instrumentals" we are looking for beats you'd like to share with the world. We will then release six selected tracks online on femalehiphop.net. This basically means that you can download an mp3 of the track and either listen to it or - this will lead us to our second release "Flip Flops" - add your own rap to the instrumental and send it to us. We'll then choose the best versions and publish them as Flip Flops.

Via FlipFlops, you'll be able to work with a beat/a vocal track of a producer/an MC you didn't know before, so you could sit in Berlin while your MC would be e.g. in Detroit or Sydney. Our motivation to start a netlabel is to push female MCs and producers who didn't get a chance to publish a record yet and also to connect female mcs worldwide. Your tracks will be published under a Creative Commons license (please visit creativecommons.org or www.femalehiphop.net for more information on the license). So get your equipment running and hit us with some banging beats at flipflop@femalehiphop.net! Good luck!
