    The next competition will be from August 3-4th! See the information below.
    *Note: Read the new information below.

    Signups

    The signups will be on August 3rd at around 8am ET, and end around 8pm ET. Voting will be for 1 day, on August 4th, where the results will be posted the same day.

    The Signup page is here (it will open up on the signup day)

    Theme: KUNG FU MOVIES
    • You must make a beat with Kung-Fu movie samples in it.
    • The talking and especially the sound effects are what you should look for.
    Here is an example:



    You can use whatever sounds you want, samples, synths, just remember to read the rules for the rest of the restrictions. What the judges will be looking for is originality, creativity, mixing skills and overall dopeness!

    *** NEW INFORMATION ***

    Voting


    From now on, the voting will be by all members! If you are competing, you will be able to vote but not for yourself. DO NOT TRY TO CHEAT! I will be watching for cheaters. This means you cannot sign up under different names or get your friends and family to sign up either. If you are caught cheating you could be banned (depending on the mood I'm in).

    Beats

    All the beats will now be displayed in a random order and without any names. All you will see is: Beat #001, Beat #002, etc. This is so that there is no favouritism when voting.

    *** END NEW INFORMATION ***

    Sponsor


    This month, the competition will be sponsored by Greg Savage & DIY Music Biz, where the winner will get 1 on 1 consultation from industry insider Greg Savage on music licensing.

    Rules

    If you're not sure about the rules, read this thread.

    If you have any comments, suggestions, or questions about the competition, please post them in here.

    Lol how noticeable do the kung fu samples have to be? I'm using a few punch and kick sound bytes but layered with other things and manipulating the sound kind of masks it.

    With any theme, it has to be noticeable, not hidden.

    Haha aight I see noticeable with more relativity, but I'm gonna roll with what I've got going on and submit. If it doesn't fit the theme, then it's whatever, discard my submission. Best of luck y'all!
