I couldnt do it last year (even tho I so wanted to big time), but maybe with some help from friends, ill do my best to setup my tables & get to dusting off my skills for this years set.

Like everyone else has said, good luck to all the djs and their sets. I will do my best not to include a track that someone else will add, but cannot make any promises.

I forgot to ask. Does the set need to be all tracks from 2011 or can we have classic tracks in it? I would like to have some flexibility in my set.

I'm 99,99% sure you can play classics too, it doesn't say anywhere it has to be tracks from 2011. :grinning:

as this one is for the contest, i think that you can play classic, too.

maybe if you win, in the "official" set for 31-12-2011, will be necessary put only 2011 tracks (but we'll have for sure further news ;)

hello there is allowed play all tracks you want:) but style progressive/trance :) there can be classics but only trance/progressive
You can play them in contest set and if you win in eoyc set:friends:

you can play
1) trance/progressive classics only
2) classics + newest tunes trance/progressive
3) newest tunes trance/progressive

there is no need to play newest tunes in set for eoyc 2011

it is your free choice what you want play :) :friends:

Oct 18th, 2011, 02:43
^ couldnt have put the wording better myself. they primary strive on trance & prog, but there are djs that slip in other genres from time to time.

now that ive gotten a better idea of what to play, i already have some tracks that i can think will be of good use in my set.

yes in mp3 format, just in CBR as opposed to VBR (usually given as an option when encoding), and if it is not 44.1 kHz the stream can skip. :)

trancefan0883
Oct 25th, 2011, 12:24
Must be zippyshare and/or megaupload?

the best option for megaupload and sendspace uploading is using sites as:

Mirrorcreator - Upload files to multiple file sharing sites (http://www.mirrorcreator.com) or Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites! (http://www.multiupload.com)

you have multi uploading there ;)
