Official STAR TRAK UNIVERSITY THREAD! Tribute music submissions!
Here we go GUYS! lets GET TO WORK!
@cjchat dope as fak
@cjchat Dope as always!
I have the soundcloud page and email up for submissions. If you would, send a copy to [email protected].
@Mika I figure we could launch the page full scale when we have 5 or more submissions. Link to the official soundcloud page is http://www.soundcloud.com/StarTrakUniversity. I put a generic startrak logo there until a graphic designer comes up with a different concept. If you post your email, i'll send you additional info.
Lets get this thing going! Everybody post your music!
@mr_novalike this is great! But I think we can elaborate a solid strategy about it before doing things fast. I think we can take it seriously with a real name as a "label" with a real logo and all that shit. Star Trak University is really cool and sounds like a place where we experience things and where we're forever students and open to party and to meet people. I also thought about Star Trak Never Dies, the meaning is a bit different because it would sounds more like a tribute by the fans to make their dream rebirth trough their own music inspired by the Star Trak we all miss... and I have that blaze in my head of P saying "Star Trak Never Dies" as an intro of all our productions...
Don't you think interesting to use our PWW soundcloud account to start with our followers? We know it's not always easy to get many...
There is an awesome potential with this idea @mr_novalike! In some months/years, what could it become... :)
@Maxime-Javel I totally thought you were talking about a website before! Yeah if that's the case I think we should go with your soundcloud account. I'm down with everything you just said. I was just excited and trying to get things rolling but you have a great foundation and idea for it.
I can make something for the logo
@HISE dope! please do
for now i guess, for some reason Corel is not letting me save the files but only exporting so I will try to ge the newest version soon.
How about blurring that ITY in UNIVERSITY in some way so it makes you guess if it says UNIVERSE or UNIVERSITY
sounds great guys i been really busy these days, but ill try to contribute these days
^Same I'll send something soon tho
this is dope! I have a few concerns though. If this is intended to be a "net label" or a collective like Soulection then the name ought not be Star Trak University for legal/originality reasons. Just my 0.2
yeah you guys should have your own name. let yourselves shine instead of a dead label.
@Mavis agree, Desciples of Neptune or something with a subtle nod without being too overt or obvious,
Guys, here some researches I've made, here is my point :
If we consider ourselves as a Star Trak lovers collective who attempt to tribute to their favorite label by providing some bad ass inspired shit by The Neptunes and want to make themselves known as the "Kids of The Neptunes", it seems good to follow this idea. It will give us notoriety and use an already known name which will make us shine on the web (think about google referencing...)
But, I agree that if we think in a long term way, it can be (or not) a closed way as a "real" label.
I say "or not" because I don't really think it could be a problem, I consider more this axe as a strategic positioning to be heard by the most and interested people possible.
Whereas, if we want to build something by our own, I guess it will be harder to get known but we'll be more "independant". So it's at us to think about what we really want to be?
Anyway, it's a fucking good idea to do it!
So guys if we want to create our own net label, we have to consider to have our own name! So, maybe we should brainstorm together about it... What would be the best name? Let's find it and write history!!
@Maxime-Javel I like those concepts you have. Though I don't know if it coincides with the legalities mentioned above. For that reason, i'm leaning towards the bottom left design.
As far as the name, I do agree that we should come up with some different variations with a nod to the old label. What immediately came to mind was "Clones Never Die" if we wanted to stay on track with what we already have. Also thought of "Blue Spaceship" ( in reference to the old website. )....Course we could just go with "Grindin" LOL the obvious choice. Or even go with the Spanish translation of Grindin. Just depends.
@mr_novalike I'd go for Grindin', I thought about this name too as it's obvious and the 'label' would be the continuity of what we do on the forum.
I agree that the best idea would be to choose a name that is in resonance with Star Trak / Pharrell / The Neptunes / NERD / BBC without stealing something existant. Yeah, we have to be original lol.
Aren't we a club? The Grindin' Club? Hum... A name in bla bla club like bbc could be cool too.
I think Grindin' should def be in there
Here is a list of names just to feed our reflexion, I don't specially like them all but they can let you think about other names like a ping pong game :
- Grindin' #Grindin
- The Grindin' Club #GrindinClub
- Star Trak Never Dies #STND
- Star Trak University #STU
- Blue Spaceship #BSS
- The Blue Spaceship Club #BSC
- Clones Never Dies #CND
- The Neptunes Kids #TNK
- We Are Other #WeAreOther
- OTHERS #OTHERS
- Others Never Dies #OND
Out of this list I like Others Never Die and Grindin
