DMC and Tekserve have teamed up for a super rad contest, and they want to know what's on your playlist. In doing so, your submission acts as an entry to win a new iPod. It really doesn't get much easier than that, but if you'd like a little more info and a play-by-play as to how to get in on the goods, I got ya covered.
First, a bit of back story. DMC's got a new single, I Got More Songs Than You Do, which is a current take on the old homages to boomboxes, only in our digi-fied world, he's shouting out his love of iPods and how many tunes he's holdin'. He even filmed the video for the song in Tekserve. Smart!
Which brings us to the DMC WANTS 2 KNOW contest. You can enter by submitting a link to a 10-song playlist you've published as an iMix to the iTunes store. (if you don't no how to do so, don't worry, it's easy and instructions are on the contest page) There are three remaining theme periods (2 weeks each): the current one being rock (July 12-26), followed by workout (July 26-August 9), and finally, hip-hop (August 9-23).
To give you an example, you can check out the playlist I put together here. Also, I tossed the list of tracks below, "just 'cause", and I'm gonna do so during each genre's time. Winners (one in each genre...so 3 remaining), as selected by DMC, will receive a 160GB iPod Classic, custom engraved and autographed by DMC. Enter now!
