So, when making this remix, does it come into play how much liberty we take with our mix? Obviously I’m not going to make a 180 BPM drum ’ n ’ bass remix. But I’m curious, do you want us to keep it strictly classic house style, or can we mix it up and make it a little more deep house, etc?

Really amazing idea by the way, I really hope there is more of this in the future, often, O-F-T-E-N. :slight_smile:

deep house would be fine - that’s the point of a remix after all!

too bad, i would love to hear dnb remixes

Hey @leyser we’d loved to hear some Dnb mixes also - this is open to every genre !
Get on it.

Where did the submitted tracks go? We can’t see people’s uploads anymore?

There was a bit of an issue with the voting system, will get it back again just as soon as we resolve it. The tracks are still there though :slight_smile:

I don’t see any track or I am on wrong page… btw. why it so hard to get to the page where published remixes are ? If i want to check is there anything new I need to scroll thru comments and look for comment with link to click on to get me to that page ?

Hi @dozz if you go to the course page there is a box there which will take you straight to the remix page. Also, we had a bit of an issue with the voting system so its down for some work.

ahh, I really hope the voting system gets fixed before the cutoff date, I was listening to other people’s mixes to get an idea of how I should develop mine…

submitted my entry. was really fun to work on it. would have never gone into this direction without the contest. thanks for that.

small thing: couldn’t find any information on the remix page what file format to upload. uploaded it as 320kbps mp3 in the end.

any eta when the voting issue will be fixed and we can listen to other entries?

just uploaded my remix guys, hope you like it, i really enjoyed doing this. hope there are some more remix comps in the future, great idea :slight_smile:

we have another one running now!

thanks for the feedback - will include more details on the upload page

Any preference mp3 vs wav vs etc ? 320 I assume? Any other requirements? (can’t find any details on this)

No preference, mp3 is cool, but if you are selected we will require a wav version.

Just uploaded my remix in Mp3 320Kbps format. I hope that you guys like it!

Thanks Chris.

I got caught up at work last night much later than expected and didn’t upload my remix… it’s 100% done and ready to go I just need to get home (at work again this morning) and get it uploaded.

I thought I just check in to clarify something considering I am EST (eastern time) … aprox 4 hours behind UTC I believe.

The contest end says “2016-09-30 00:00:00 UTC” Originally I thought that mean I had until tomorrow night (end of the last day of the month). But after re-reading it… that’s midnight tonight correct? With a 4 hour difference I’m feeling a bit gutted as I don’t know if i’ll be home before 7 my time which obviously cuts thing REALLY close to the 8pm(EST) cutoff… :slight_smile: Can you confirm this?

*** Edit… just saw the confirmation on facebook… ugh!!! … I have a version with me that is 1 small edit ago… I guess I’ll upload it if I run out of time … 4 sessions of work all comes down to needing 2 extra hours!! boo :frowning: … my fault! ***

It’s cool - as long as it’s in before the end of play 30th September Pacific Time - which should be the end of the day everywhere.

PS guys - we have opened the voting again - so you can listen to others tracks and vote for your favourites :slight_smile:
