Zano and Criminal Records call for producers

Atlanta DJ, emcee, producer, and comic book nerd Zano's latest project is born of his day job. Wiling away the hours among the used vinyl bins as a clerk at Criminal Records, he saw a potentially endless resource for making music. "Do you make beats?" asks a simple white sign popping out of the small hip-hop section in a back corner of the store. Producers are challenged to create an instrumental track using samples exclusively mined from the fairly cheap used records available for purchase at the store. The selected entries will find their way onto a compilation CD released by Criminal.

To submit your beat (again, make sure all the samples you use are derived from records purchased at the shop) or get more info, contact zano@criminal.com, or visit him in the store at 1154-A Euclid Avenue.
