|Submit your artwork for Secret 7" project (25/01/2014 @ 12:11:52)
We have teamed up with the people behind the Secret 7" project to find local artists who would like to submit a design for one of this year's releases. Secret 7" is an annual event that combines music and art for a good cause. They take 7 tracks from 7 of the best known musicians around and press each one 100 times to 7" vinyl. They then invite creatives from around the world to interpret the tracks in their own style, resulting in a unique sleeve for every 7Ē. The 700 sleeves will be exhibited Downstairs At Mother in London on 12th & 13th April, then on Record Store Day (Saturday 18th April) they go on sale for £45 each . All proceeds go to the War Child charity. Customers donít know who created the sleeve, or what record is inside, the secret lies within! We have some of the packs in the shop now with all the details designers need contained inside. For any further information please look at the Secret 7" website.
