Mashstix Mashoff #55 - Reggaeton Music

Post Mon Oct 02, 2017 12:12 am

RULES:

Image

"Reggaeton (also known as reggaetón and reguetón) is a musical genre which originated in Puerto Rico during the late 1990s. It is influenced by hip hop and Latin American and Caribbean music. Vocals include rapping and singing, typically in Spanish".
(From Wikipedia).

This genre gets more and more popular these days, and we can't argue with the success of the number 1 hit "Despacito" by Luis Fonsi featuring Daddy Yankee, which is the most viewed video on YouTube, with over 3.8 billion views as of October 1, 2017.

So, the only rule for this month contest is to include at least one source from this genre, acapella or instrumental.

In case you're going to use instrumental, bare in mind that this music style usually sounds monotonic, and your challenge is to make it interesting enough to get the listeners attention and votes.
If you wish, you can mix some beats and samples like this on top of other instrumental from different genre.

List of Reggaeton musicians

Please note: Reggaeton is not Reggae! it's a younger genre and has a different rhythm.

Good luck to ya'll :1wink:



THE 5-STEP DESCRIPTION:

  • At the start of every month, the (newly entitled) Emperor of MashStix posts a thread containing details of the challenge, for Example: 'Mashups 90bpm or slower with the theme of love'. They should also include the '5-Step Description' and the 'FAQ'.

  • The post will then shortly be stickied to the top of the 'Submit Mashups' section for all to see and respond to with their entries. Entries must be in by the 20th.
  • A vote will be created within that thread for everyone to vote on who should win and become the new Emperor (the vote can be created by the current emperor so please don't wait for a mod to do it as we are a busy people)

  • On the 27th (or until the last day of the month at the current emperor's choice) the poll shall end and a the new emperor will be chosen.

  • The winning track will then be featured on the Frontpage!



FAQ:

> How should I post my mashup?
Entries are to be posted in the thread using the players in the same way as you would on the main mashstix board (i.e. via Dropbox, hearthis, soundcloud or your own webspace), including details of the tracks used.

> Can I use a mashup that I've made previously?
No, that would be cheating!

> What if there is a tie!?
All ties will be settled by the Emperor (sounds like a worthy title now, doesn't it?)

> I didn't win, what can I do with my mashup?
If you are particularly proud of your mashup but didn't win then feel free to post your mashup in the 'Submit Mashup' section as you ordinarily would.

> What do I do if I'm confused??
PM 'DJ Firth' or another mod if you notice they are active

> So the Emperor get's to choose the next challenge and settle tie breakers, anything else?
The Emperor will attain limitless glory for all of eternity (and bragging rights)[/quote]

Mashup name: Error En Despacito

It's rather preferable to hear satis5d's Train Wreck than making a reggaeton-related mash...

...UNLESS I CAN JINX IT ALOT! :1grin:

Great entry, Gladi :1shocked:
We can say that the contest has began now :1smiley:

Couple of suggestions:
You can lower the mid range freq, use more reverb on the vocals (it's a bit dry), and I might think of using kind of Flanger or Distortion effect too, it might also help to hide this DIY pella :1wink:


I hope the others working hard on their entries, it's so quite here :1huh:

Hey! This was a fun challange SMASH ! Im normally a House Dj, so for me this Reggaeton genre is a bit unusual to say the least.. Not sure if the Despacito track counts as a Reggaeton tune? But you've used it as an example so i hope its OK ?
This is my first entry on the challenge, i hope you all like it :1laugh:

Warezio - Me Enamoré and the Rhythm

Selena Gomez - Me and the Rhythm (acapella)
Shakira - Me Enamoré (zona instrumental)

Interesting Mashoff theme ... I listened to a bunch of songs I normally wouldn't. Overall they are slower than I am used to, but fortunately Selena is also taking her time.

Also would have worked two mashoffs ago even though "Me" is not the same word.

Version 0 (still needs vocal level adjustments):

Sure it's OK, Despacito categorized under the genre of Reggaeton, Latin pop, Dance/electronic and Pop.


Remind all the others, we are in the last week before starting the voting phase, in case you didn't start working on your entry, it's about time :1wink:

Cool idea, Legato :1cool:
As for your request for a second entry, well, I'm almost 2 years here in Mashstix and I didn't see in any contest more than 1 entry per contestant, and I don't think it will be fair for the others :1undecided:
Because of lack of entries I want so much to say yes, but I think we should stay with 1 entry per each, hope you'll understand.
In any case you are free to change your entry anytime until the voting period will start, just update your original post.
BTW, I'm not sure if this combo keeps the key on spot everywhere, I need to give it a fresh listen.
Let me know which one you choose :1wink:
