BB100 - Beat Battle Royale


OK IO. Thanks for the extension.
Call the track “Ark Kirchhoff 5” or something IDC.

I cleared up what I thought I was unable to last night. Also the left channel of my amp decided to completely die last night as well. So I ended up mixing the remainder on headphones.

Here is an explanation concerning the audio pack required. It will also show you how unqualified this track is.

Now I want to see to diagnosing my amp so I don’t need to blow $200 for no reason.


About 3h 45m for any more entries.


rendering lol


as life on earth sputters out in an anticlimactic fashion, the last of us look towards the horizon as the machine we cobbled together blasts off, our last hope of living on as a species.

Mac coffee is its fuel. I have to admit I’m impressed we were able to pull it off. The spacecraft is endearing in its rickety form. But what does it matter- surely it will not make it past Jupiter.


Alright, that’s it!

No more entries, the voting period now commences! Mind you, this is for the Beat Battle winner, namely who gets bragging rights and a BRAND NEW POCKET OPERATOR RHYTHM OP-12!!!


So here’s my thing, made it last night + today. Didn’t initially plan on participating but what the hey, why not? Hope the mix is ok, didn’t do the car test. I also opt out of the voting pool for winning the prize, but would still like to be on the compilation.

[In the distant future…]

Tesla|Phobos is proud to announce our first ever luxury Interstellar Sports Vehicle, the Model 100. Never before has racing between systems been so incredibly fast, or so incredibly stylish. Equipped with patented Twin Accelerated Ion Emitter Manifolds for nominal space-time propulsion, Infinity-Argument Collapser Drive for FTL straightaways, state-of-the-art Gravity Well Negotiator Pylons for unbelievably nimble cornering , and the all-new ‘GluonSpear’ proprietary debris disintegrator system to negate hull damage from void particulate, the Model 100 is the most advanced ISV available to Galactic Commonwealth consumers. Sporting an art deco-inspired gold-platinum-titanium interior with seating for four and plenty of storage space, you can impress your friends as you travel from Earth orbit to Vega orbit and back in a record-breaking five minutes and eight seconds, all while hauling four tons of compressed osmium.

Don’t miss out on owning the finest, fastest luxury vehicle ever produced.

WARNING: Do not operate without using proper safety equipment. Operating vehicle without functioning Dimensional Aberration Dampener exosuit and ‘Cornerstone ST Tether’ will result in FTL-related time loss, potential ST tearing, and potentially fatal FTL-related psyche distortion.

BB101 - Acidhead's Delight

Nice to see so many cool last minute entries!

Looking forward to giving all of them a closer listen over the weekend:)



Damn, so many quality submissions, this is going to be a hard one to vote on for people, I’m sure.

But after much deliberation, my vote goes to Joshua Kim/@theusername24 for his v1 track. I mean, I like the actual submission too (it’s my 2nd choice, so the vote would still be the same) and it is superior sonically and melodically. But that “just fucking around” playfulness of the first one is really appealing to me.

Forgot to include the unmastered link for mine, so here it is:


Really stoked at the turn out from everyone’s tracks in here. A lot of dynamic stuff!! My lazy ass couldn’t pull together a track, so I’m not sure I can actually vote, but if I can, my vote goes for @theusername24’s piece. That really had some tight nit sections in it that dialed in the theme for me.


OK, voting is open, and its time to cast your favorite!

Votes should be based on the artist’s use of the samples, song arrangement, and general impact!

The person with the most votes will become the proud new owner of a POCKET OPERATOR RHYTHM!!!

A reminder votes here will be for the beat battle and pocket operator winner only, votes cast here are not tied to the tracks to be included on the comp.

Voting will end and the winner shall be displayed at midnight on July 31st (MST, -7 UTC).

@nose, @aSSerbik, please recast your vote in the poll.


I didn’t make a track, so I’m exempt from voting, yeah? Or are we doing anything goes community wide for this?


No, voting is open to any user of the forum!


damn… i have no idea who to vote for. So much good shit here. uh lol man, I feel like I should’ve been more serious or something. some people got real chops around here.

Tsachi. nice track. that intro melted my phace. love it.

also, Defiance of Gravity, you have some real chops, dayum.

i have to think about all of this. Not seeing the results for 2 weeks is pretty intense.


like… i really like all of em, it’s kind of crazy actually


Gentle reminder for anyone that doesn’t know, voting for your own track has historically been discouraged on BBs unless IO wants to allow it for bb100


imagine voting for yourself thinking it’s the best submission ever. that’s just embarrassing and should be publicly shamed


You guys make it really hard to vote! Awesome work you all!

The second sub by theusername24 reminds me of the Deus Ex OST, specifically The Synapse (I think that’s what it’s called, I mean the track playing in Hong Kong) :smiley:


lmao… trying to remember the dudes name who asked if he could vote for himself. He was actually kind of cool I just think he was living in satire a bit.


good god… listening to mine now the bass is comically loud… oops . be careful don’t blow your woofers. wtf happened shrug
