HNHH updates include the continued revamp of the site's overall look and new photo galleries. Want to be featured on HNHH? We're trying something new with HNHH Heatseekers. Details below.
SITE LOOK & PHOTO GALLERIES
As we've been refreshing the site look, you'veÂ probably noticed the design changes weâve been implementing over the last few months. Â Thereâs been a lot of good feedback coming in from everyone, so thanks for the support. Weâve also come across a lot of helpful emails pointing out some bugs on the site. Â If you do spot anything, sendÂ us a messageÂ at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thereâs also a new photo viewer that weâll be implementing in future articles. Â We decided to test it out using our footage and pics from Summer Jam 2012. [Check out ourÂ Recap VideoÂ andÂ Photos here.]
* NEW FEATUREÂ *
We receive a ton of music daily from artists that submit songs, mixtapes and videos. Â We donât always have the chance to hear it all, but weâve come across a lot of good music from unsigned and indie artists.
We wanted to find a way to show some love to the Top Submissions that weâve received and also give a hand to artists that deserve it. So we decided to feature them in an ongoing spotlight weâre calling HNHH Heatseekers.
Our editors will choose a handful of artists to feature every week (or two). Â Weâll be posting a small bio about them, along with some of their music and links to their Facebook, Twitter and website.
The criteria for the chosen submissions are based on the following:
- Strong Lyrical Content and/or Song Concept
- Overall recording quality and production quality (Songs and/or Videos)
- Artistic Appeal and/or Commercial Appeal
- Flow and Voice
Other factors considered:
- Existing following/ Fan base
- Professional Approach and Presentation
We're on the lookout forÂ good music, but we also want to seeÂ artists that look like they have their âishâ together. Making it in the music industry is a grind and we know that it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to make a name for yourself and your music.
We appreciate all the music that is submitted to our site. Â We know that we canât possibly listen to every submission, but with these features, we hope to showcase artists that are on the verge of something, and hopefully give a boost to their careers.
This opportunity is something we're trying out, and is only for unsigned or independent artists who are not already commercially established or receiving major commercialÂ radio-playÂ orÂ distribution.Â
To apply, check out theÂ guidelines in our FAQ section:Â 9. How can I get my mixtape featured?Â These guidelines apply to mixtapes, songs and videos.Â
-Â Send your music and contact information to email@example.com [include 'Heatseekers' in your subjectÂ title].
- Include any links to your songs, website, Facebook, Twitter and videos (if applicable).
