BB47 : The Techno Challenge - It's not fucking EDM =:)-

The Challenge

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 (6th Jan 2017).
Submissions close Tuesday 11 days later (17th Jan 2017) 23:59 and voting opens at 00:00 (immediately after).

Voting closes at 23:59 on the 13th day, Thursday (19th Jan 2017).

The winner then becomes the Host, and has until 23:59 on the 14th day (Friday 20th Jan 2017 ) to post a new thread with a new sample set and new rules.

Late Submissions are void to receiving a vote
All times are UTC.

Countdown until submissions close:


The rules for this round:

1. Techno covers a large scope of tempos, styles and production techniques. The genre for this BB47 is Techno. Keep it true and to the heart of the genre.

2. You need to include a technique with an effect plugin you've not tried before. This could be a freebie or demo of something commercial.

3. There must be some form of rhythmic melody that is progressive through the track from the pack. It could be a sample as a whole or one shot sample edited. But it needs to be distinctive to all the users which sample you have used from the pack.

SAMPLES: BB47 The Techno Challenge - Keep the Viking Dancing SAMPLE PACK

There's a bundle of samples in here. This is intentional as the aim is to create rather than dig, splice and so on. The challenge is in the genre and your track, opposed to the actual sound sources.

Everyone is welcome to participate and if you have anything at all post it! This is about participation, community and we're not gonna be judgmental. Join us in this little exercise in music making with deadlines and obstructions!

Would wish you miserable fuckers a happy new year but that's old news.

So happy fucking techno producing and if the techno viking cant feel the vibe - he'll hunt the shit out of you in your sleep!!!!!!

Remember the Viking doesn't dance to the beat, the beat follows the Viking
