The big day has finally come! The “Heatwave” video was released on YouTube today, so sit back, relax, and watch (at 720p for best viewing, apparently):
With the video unveiled, everyone in Backburner and at Hand’Solo Records is so excited we’ve decided to celebrate with two additional activities that should hopefully help you become more involved in our excitement:
1. “Heatwave” remix contest.
We’ve decided to produced a collector’s edition vinyl EP of favourites from the album, and we’ll definitely need a remix of “Heatwave” to make the EP that much more special. While the 19-man crew kept everything in-house for the album, everyone is in agreement that it will be more interesting to see what an outside ear brings to this very distinct song. Prospective producers should feel free to experiment. This is YOUR remix. The winner will have their remix released on the vinyl EP as well as receive five copies of the EP. The four runner-up remixes will be featured on HandSoloRecords.com and Backburner.ca leading up to the release of the vinyl Heatwave EP. All submissions must be received by February 29, 2012 and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
