I'm planning of making a demo this year and I wonder what the best concept for a demo is. I was thinking to put 10 beats on it. Every beat lasting about 8 or 16 bars, depending on hooks, melody and things like that. After these 10 short beats I make the 10 beats in a whole song with some acapella's on them so the A&R can listen a whole song if they liked the beat at first hand. So in total there will be 20 numbers on the CD.
What do you think of this, did you do something else?
What about the cover? should it be all flashy and stuff or does nobody give a kuff?
