Calling all street poets, MCs, lyricists, vocal divas and musical minds!
Then Peace Mix needs you: we want your vocals, rhymes, melodies, spoken word, instrumentals and beats to create the most awesome peace anthemever. Our aim: a huge collaboration track to spread harmony across the UK and feature the best music talent possible – which could include YOU!
Step 1: Get inspired to make your message of peace! Here’s our Peace Mix brief:
What is ‘peace’ to you? Think about your message and communicating this through music or lyrics. We’re in tough times: how does conflict and resolution affect you? How do you want to push peace?
Then listen to our backing track created by SBTV and think about how you’ll contribute: vocals, raps, spoken word, percussion, instrumental or beats.

Step 2: Choose a section to add to: intro, chorus or one of our three verses?
Intro: ideally we’re looking for attention-grabbing spoken words or rhymes to kickstart our song – but if you’re inspired to create music or vocals go for it!
Chorus: vocalists – we need you for our chorus! Listen and think about your melody line to get people hooked.
The three verses: we want everyone to get creative with our verses – grime, hip hop or world – with vocal lines, rhymes or raps, spoken word, instrumentals, percussion or beats!
We’ve a full version of each verse to download, plus an instrumental only for percussionists or beat masters to play around with – and a drums only version for musicians and melody makers.
Step 3: Finished your section? Then submit and enter!
Deadline for entries is 11.59pm Monday 13 August 2012
