Actually itīs quite late to post it here (as deadline for submiting mixes is tomorrow) but some of you may have time to mix something before the deadline ;)
Requrements on the mix:
In keeping with the tradition of - that mix we cant name - the set length is set at 2 hours. Both as a minimum and a maximum - give or take a few minutes. This strict time limit should really make you think about how you programme your mix. Make your selections essential.
This competition is totally open to any genre whatsoever. The main premise is to introduce some variety and give you the chance to air hopefully more than just a single genre. Maybe there's the odd drum and bass, techno, minimal, dubstep or down right left-of-field track you want to stick in. The board carries a whole wealth of musical tastes and skilled producers too. Here is your opportunity to show that in full. Don't be afraid. Experiment.
All methods of putting together the mix are accepted. Vinyl, CD, Digital. From 1210s to Ableton the tools of a djs trade have evolved, and in keeping with the contemporary trends that those early morning sessions are put together on, the competition embraces them all. There will be no concessions for a mix put together via any particular method, as each takes practice, and skill in their own right to get really really good. Feel free however, to mention how you did your mix. It could be one method, it could be three!
This competition is only open to members of Matthardwick.com, both current and future. Not a member yet? then sign up here. You will also not be able to post or vote until you are.
