FAQ

HOW DOES IT WORK FOR PRODUCERS?

Producers will have a one (2 or 3 hours)  for the weekend where they will control the beats playing in the room. There will be an engineer present in the room ready to track vocals from any artists that wish to record. If you purchase a one day pass you'll be allotted 2 hours for the day and are permitted to hang out for the remainder of the day.

HOW DOES IT WORK FOR ARTISTS?

Artists/Songwriters arrive at Lynx Music and can easily figure out what genre is playing in the room. Once there is some cohesion with everyone in the room, the engineers can start recording anyone. We take the demos and decide if it's something we'd use for our upcoming releases. 

MY MAIN GENRE ISN'T HIP-HOP, IS THIS FOR ME?

Yes! We are a multi-genre writing camp. Our previous tapes have included R&B, Soul, Pop, Dancehall, and Reggae. Our community is filled with multi-genre musicians and we encourage diversity.

WHAT IF A SONG I'M ON GETS CHOSEN?

Everyone signs a split contract before coming to the event that explains the splits amongst all the creators which works out too : 

30% Artists (split evenly among artists on the tape)

30% Producer (split evenly among the collaborators) 

25% BELIEVE MUSIC

10% BEATCAVE + Distribution Rights 

5% Engineers 

IF I RECORD ON A TRACK, DOES THAT MEAN I WILL MAKE THE FINAL CUT?

No, unfortunately, nothing is guaranteed once we start to shortlist the music we will be using. Don't be discouraged if your verse, hook, or chorus isn't used, doesn't mean we don't like your music, might just not fit. The decision is made by the producer, engineer and the BEATCAVE team. 

IF I'M A BEATCAVE MEMBER, DO I GET A DISCOUNT?

Yes! Beatcave members (free to sign up + cancel anytime) will get access to the CAMP for 20% off. 

 

WILL THERE BE FOOD & BEVERAGES

Yes! We'll be providing a meal, snacks and drinks for people attending. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions and we can try and accommodate.
