After teaming up with Roundhouse and Boxfresh, Hyperfrank has launched an exciting new project called 'Volume Control' which gives the listener the chance play a part in putting together the music they'd like to hear. The first installment saw Dot Rotten step into the studio to vocal one of a selection of beats, each of which could be voted for on Hyperfrank's blog. The 3 beats in contention were:
1) Dizzee Rascal - Wheel
2) Darq E Freaker X Spooky - It's Sparta
3) BeatGeeks - Nightmare
After counting the votes, BeatGeeks' 'Nightmare' proved a worthy winner and the end product, a track entitled 'Thunder' with Dot Rotten providing the vocals, is predictably fiyaaaahhhh.
Not only does the 'Volume Control' series empower the fans and produce excellent music, it provides a platform for established and up-and-coming artists alike to showcase their work. Given the results of the first installment, I'd stay locked for the next one! Here's to more good music.
