Record Store Day Relaunches its Unsigned Contest

Artists will have a chance at its own vinyl pressing

NME Daily reports that Record Store Day is relaunching its RSD Unsigned competition.

According to this report, the contest, running in partnership with Breed Media, will result in one unsigned artist having their music pressed on a 500 record run using “Bio-Vinyl” which according to a press release is a “new more sustainable but acoustically identical vinyl compound”. The winner will also attend a mastering session at London’s Abbey Road Studios.

To enter RSD Unsigned, artists must submit a two-minute sample of original music to TikTok or YouTube using the #RSDUnsigned hashtag. The entry must be finalized here before October 16.

“This collaboration between Record Store Day and Breed Media is a testament to our commitment to supporting independent artists and recognizing the important role they play in their communities,” said Alan Jordan of Reflex Records in Newcastle and the RSD Board.

“RSD Unsigned aims to celebrate the diversity and innovation in new music and shine a light on the role record shops all around the country play in supporting new and breaking talent.”

Previous winners have included Amy Fitz Doyley, Sister Cookie, Heavy Rapids and Barbudo.
