Imagine they will list them on the the front page in the local news late this afternoon. Not sure if they will contact finalists first.

Would imagine either 5 or 10 finalists? (prob 5 for the simple fact that there wont be that much time for people to listen to them and vote before FMF which is only 2.5 weeks away!)

how can you half a track? you see, tracks are like holes, it's either is or it isn't, they don't come in halves.

Well it was layered over the top of another, and only used elements of the percussion so you would probably not even notice it was there (therefore possibly pointless)

I submitted 2 mixes.
One was a real effort of some jackin house - but probably not what they are looking for though.
Second was a girltalk style mashup set with 23 tracks inc acapellas that had alot of cutting/dropping and looping - it was such a poor effort I would probably be disqualified from ever uploading a mix to ITM again.

I want to see who did make it though and what they were looking for.

mine was just 6 tracks. starting out techy-fidget, progressing into a tougher electro / tech-funk sound. mixed on cdj's tho. in hindsight i could've cut each track down in ableton and then put more into the mix.

Here's a mix I submitted. I decided to do a mix with longer transitions rather than jam it full of tracks. I guess It's not really what they were looking for. Technically...I couldn't have done much more. Have a listen and drop some feedback if you have the chance.

Congratulations to the Dj's that made it to the finals....I've heard some pretty wicked sets.

Hate to say this but as far as festival sets for the cheesey masses go Hey Now's is the best so far, although I'd feel better if I saw a video of him doing it live.

It pisses me off when I go to a festival and a DJ is actually doing some really cool stuff and noone is dancing or anything to the music, then some 'big name' DJ comes on next set and pumps out the same shit that you could hear at any club in town any night of the week and they instantly fill the 'floor'. I suppose that is what people go to festivals for - the music you can hear any night of the week in excess, ad naseum. The only time I was proved wrong was Claude Von Stroke's set at SummaDayze 2008 but I guess it was electro..

Was there any restriction on what style of music they wanted in the entry mixes? Would have made sense to me for the mix to be based on what style the winner would be playing at FMF - ie. opening slot in a small room.
