    Default Will They Blend? Mix Challenge Official Thread

    For those of you following this thread welcome back, for those of you that stumbled in some other way, HI!



    The Idea

    A DJ mix competition with a twist; instead of saying we want a 30 min house mix... GO!! Leading to everyone digging for their best, 'stand out' tunes and throwing down in an attempt to outshine each other. We're setting the tracks for you, so you have to outshine the rest with your own creativity and personal interpretation.


    The Challange

    Take the 10 tracks listed below, spanning Breaks, Dub Step, Drum & Bass, House and Techno (2 of each) and mix them together. Quite simple really... (if you disregard the 'odd' mix of styles, and the tempo changes that crop up)


    'Rules'
    1. Use all 10 tracks, and no others - in any order
    2. You are allowed to use one additional sample of your choosing, one shot or loop - max 16 beats. The sample can be used as much or as little as you want.
    3. Have FUN
    4. Winner will be decided by public poll



    The Tracks

    Biometrix - Bass Skanker Link (dub step)

    Chris Lake and Marco Lys - Stay Link (house)

    Cyberoptix - Geisha Link (dub step)

    Dopamine/Diverted - Only One (BLIM remix) Link (breaks)

    Jason Fernades / Hugo Paixo - Intruder Link (techno)

    Kiko & Ginos - Anse Vasta Link (techno)

    Kuilema vs Rosyroze - Ay Que Linda (Original Mix) Link (house)

    Origin Unknown - Lunar Bass (Commix remix) Link (drum and bass)

    Ram Trilogy - Grid Lock (Break remix) Link (drum and bass)

    The Rogue Element - My Style Link (breaks)


    Admittedly these are Juno Download links, but they can all be found on Beatport as well...

    Start downloading now, and have you mixes submitted by 13th Feb (just over a couple of weeks away). Post the mixes to my Soundcloud Drop Box and i'll sort out poll threads on the 13th.
    With the mix, post the order you used the tracks, the sample you used and what software/gear combo you did it with.

    And now i'm off to buy the tracks...


    Handy thread that got necro bumped about BPM switching

    Another handy thread where people have shared mix techniques

    toying with poll threads and let the public decided, though am thinking that photojojo, weltraumpapst, kooper1980, Citizen_Insane and myself should take judging duty as we named the tracks...

    you wanna judge to?

    Still on the fence about this. Not sure I have the time, but really want to.

    neither right or wrong, haven't decided on judging bit properly yet, it's a detail that isn't needed straight away for people to get going, lol

    will update when it's been figured out.

    I think either a poll or loading them all to a single mixcloud and letting people favorite their favorite.

    I also say if you accidently download the wrong remix you're disqualified. So pay attention.

    Poll is good.

    Id love to judge though. As previously mentioned i dont really have time to compete but as an impartial observer id judge.

    Poll is fairest though i guess.
