Well it's even better to call this competition as "mashup/bootleg" contest, right:)
sounds great, tnx for the info:)

Great Idea!

I dont know about the rest of the forum, but unfortunately I dont speak Dutch :(

if you could explain the rules a little clearer i would greatly appreciate it:
for example:

"Maak een remix van twee of meer platen van verschillende stylen. Maximum lengte: 5 min.". does this mean the maximum length of the mashup can only be 5 mins?

also, does it have to be live or studio work?

please try and explain the rules to the best of your ability,

thank you in advance,

Sasha Pidann

The maximum length of the remix/mashup is 5 mins yes. And it's not said how you are allowed to make it, so you can use anything :)


Just do something with two or more tracks of various styles within a timespan of 5 minutes. Record or render your work and upload it to yousendit. I assume in mp3 format (192kbps-320kbps). They can always ask for a better quality later, if needed :)

Then enter your name and real name in the first box.
Your email-adress in the second box.
The yousendit link of your track in the third.
And write down the names of the tracks you used, in the last box.

(perhaps it's best to include a note in the last box where you tell them you don't speak Dutch and if they can please respond to you in English)

Then send :)

They will write you an email when they have registered your info and when they will start to judge your track.

That's it. Simple rules :) Now try to come up with a good remix/mashup :D

Wow, thank you for a detailed explanation, i find it kinda interesting how we are supposed to make a mashup, but limit it to only 5 mins:

i am just wondering; last time I played at my residency (that is all over now :( ) i screwed around a lot with my decks (4 going at a time), and thankfully i recorded that set, do you think it would be appropriate to cut out one of my mashups i did during that set? (5 mins would work that way).

its not the best things you guys will ever hear, but then again its 100% LIVE. I just went nuts, barely any people there, so i just wanted to experiment.

Before submiting the link, i would like for a few of you to take a listen, and tell me if its even worth submitting.

Coming across this competition brings to mind the 5 minute demo that Shane54 made for MixedInKey (http://www.mixedinkey.com). A good example of what you can do in just 5 minutes. 32 tracks mixed together harmonicly:

MixedInKey (http://www.mixedinkey.com) is a very good tool if you want to compete in this competition, so be sure to check it out if you haven't already :)

Wow i would never had guessed, that you all like the idea so much.
And that you are all so interested.
I also listen to the Mash up's, and i heared a really nice one with the tracks:
Armin Van Buuren - Control Freak (Sander Van Doorn Remix)
Madonna - Ray Of Light (acapella)
Just to give you an idea, maybe one of you send it in i don't know, but it was nice

he stole that style of mixing from Armin

mashing songs in certain amount of time

that is total copying

lol, You've got to be kidding me

First of all, I've never heard Armin mix 32 tracks in 5 minutes. He had around 80 in his 2 hour yearmixes, which doesn't even come close.

Secondly, I don't see why mixing/mashing tracks up in rapid succession would be the copying of someone's mixing style. It's basically what megamixes are all about. It's not a style specific to one person, especially not Armin who made only 3 megamixes. And if you really have to call it copying then it would be copying the person who did it first, which certainly isn't Armin either. Ben Liebrand perhaps?

But really I don't get why this thought pops up in your mind at all. This is the first time I heard a mix like this, and even if I had heard more I wouldn't think of it as copying.

I don't think armin invented key-matching in mixing. I personally love Shane54's mixing style and a lot of his mash-ups are really good actually. I don't think he should be judged as unproffessional because he made one bad mashup? I mean Armin isn't the greatest every single week on ASOT, he has his bad weeks.

I like the panning and effects on the vocals. The "control freak" voice kinda get's in the way. If it could somehow be removed it would make the track better as a whole. The two vocals together don't make much sense, but it's a good attempt in my opinion. Only not something I would play, for the reason stated.
