The Battle Host must provide a sample set to be used for the battle. These samples are the only sound sources allowed, unless the Additional Rules for the battle state otherwise. The samples can be anything that the Battle Host has the right to distribute for non-commercial use.
The Battle Host must create three Additional Rules. These can allow or require additional sound sources, or impose any kind of new requirements.
Anyone can enter the Battle by posting a link to their entry in the Battle thread. Unless the Additional Rules state otherwise, any processing is allowed and the source samples need not be recognizable. The Host may disqualify any entry that does not meet either the general rules or the additional ones.
Once the submission deadline is reached, the winner is elected by posting votes in the same thread. Anyone is welcome to vote whether they participated or not. In case of a draw, the Host designates the winner between the submissions tied for first place.
Each battle takes place over two weeks, starting on a Friday. Submissions close and votes open at 23:59 on the 11th day (tuesday). Voting closes at 23:59 on the 13th day (thursday). The winner then becomes the Host, and has until 23:59 on the 14th day (friday) to post a new thread with a new sample set and new rules.
Ok I am an Old School Silver Surfer with the mind stuck 20+ years in the past. Due to a certain amount of lifestyle adaptations and induced concoctions, my mind is rather hedonistic in nature so this BB you need to think….Big beat, Breaks, Acid, Old School Rave, Jungles, Drum&Bass. The Early Nineties, Chemical Brothers, Prodigy, Future Sound of London, FatBoySlim, Adam F...
Do what you want as long as it hits the genres and bring it to the sounds of today.
No 4x4 to be used and the track should be at least 128bpms.
Any of the samples are to be used through sample editing, slicing, audio cutting, putting through effects, please try to avoid putting the samples through granular synthesis and the like. I want to see what you can do old skool as if you only had an Akai sampler and a host of effect units!
Important…have fun and surprise yourselves.
Submissions close Tuesday the 26th Jan and voting ends Midnight Thursday the 28th Jan.
