Massive quoting is fun, if I can learn to be a good DJ in time for this I think I will enter...but probably not

It would work though, you do that then you play whatever you want for the opening set.

Remember 4chan voted several hundred million times in the MTV music awards, Astley had like 650 million votes.

Why no breaks or dnb?

Hardly can be a dj comp if there is no dnb,

you are hardly a worthy dj if you can only mix one style.

in saying that, electro is the origin of breaks, hip hop is a style of breaks, and you can argue that dnb is a form of hip hop.
nowhere does it say that it has to be 4/4

just use soundforge, audition or such like to compress it down to 128k. it should be under 30mb if your mix is 30mins.

4. Sit back and wait for the announcement of finalists here on inthemix, February 18th!

I'd say you need to perform live in a heat of some kind, there is no way they'd have you playing at a festival before casting an eye over you

^^ i reckon if someone wins with an ableton mix they can probably do exactly the same thing live (i mean in front of a crowd, not live as in mixing it themselves).

3 easy steps;

1 - put on headphones, leaving one ear exposed.
2 - start ableton mix playing.
3 - wave arms and jump around in time with the music.

congratulations - you are now a superstar DJ.

i was thinking it prolly wouldn't matter if it went a little over, then reviewed the details page, and it says follow the instructions EXACTLY. so i'm guessing that any entries going for more than 30 mins would pretty much be the first to go, perhaps even without a listen.

so yeah, don't worry about it i'm sure it won't matter if your mix goes over 30 mins

or they'll just stop listening after 30mins. Mine was 30mins 3secs i doubt that'll be a problem. 35 is pushing it imho, just play with some effects to fade it out

^^ This sunday night

Can I ask how many tracks people have put on theirs? I recorded a 'draft' of mine last night and managed to fit 10 tracks on there within 29 minutes, mixing furiously over 3 decks (it required a hell of a lot of planning, timing and concentration). It sounds smooth and interesting, because I have only included the 'interesting' parts of the songs (there are no dead spots) - it doesnt sound like a megamix but do people think 10 is absurd?

10 tunes is about 3mins per tune, so depending on your genre 10 tunes isn't that redonkulous.

i guess it just depends on what type of music it is. more vocal stuff, catchy tunes, i guess your mixing into the hook for each tune..

I just completed a mix that I'll submit for the comp that has 23 tracks (including acapellas) in 30mins.

I've already submitted a Jackin house mix but I thought I might do something so commercially daft that they will have to accept it. The mixing is shit and rushed but it fits it all in and has a very dynamic feel to it.

It's amusing me listening to it.
