The Rules:

1. The acapella(s) must be sung by a female.
2. The instrumental must be from a song produced by either a solo female act, a female-only group, or a group fronted by a female (ex: Paramore, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, CHVRCHES, etc.).

No constraints on language, genre, or anything else! Be creative, and have fun! :1grin:



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 a day of the month at the current emperor's choice) the poll shall end and 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??
Private Message one of the moderators for assistance. Start with the Emperor.

> So the Emperor gets to choose the next challenge and settle a tiebreaker, anything else?
The Emperor will attain limitless glory for all of eternity (and bragging rights)

sources:
Toni Braxton - You're Makin' Me High (acapella) A# minor
Shakira - Hips Don't Lie (album instrumental) A# minor
Shakira ft. Wyclef Jean - Hips Don't Lie (acapella) A# minor
Samples from coach Shakira on 'The Voice'.

what I did in version 1:
Stereowidened the narrow mental, cut out most of the horns and repeated/reordered parts.
Made a EQ-dip as room for the vocal of 2,0 dB and 4 octaves wide around 1.000 Hz as centre.
Put samples on 'winning competition' :1grin: over beatless intro.
Overlayed 'this is perfection' (hahaha) part of Shakira-pella over intro with beats.
Put 'no fighting' end of Shakira-pella at the end of my intro.
Used a Spanish part on @0:34,5 and another 'es perfecto' part as [2:54 - 2:59].
Cut off Braxton pella start, and started Toni singing on @0:38,5
Used in the intro some Toni parts from further on to react on Shakira.
Overdubbed the first Braxton line and combined it with another line @2:03 with some panning.
Used more panning automation (35% L+R) to keep the two girls apart.
Overdubbed a Toni 'mmm mmm mmm' @3:37,5 and made a cutup edit @3:54 of Sha-Sha-Shakira Mebarak, as I learned her last name from her oath at the Voice.

He's done it again! SMASH is the new Emperor of Mashstix. :1cool:

I'm not sure if we will run a contest this month as it seems likely that Mashstix is getting a complete redesign/overhaul this month (which is already well underway behind the scenes). If we start a contest this month, I'm not sure that we would be able to finish it. What do you think, Emperor?

Thanks, satis5d, and thanks for all who voted for me :1grin:

I tend to agree with you about giving the Mashoff a small break, although I'm not sure if phase one of the new site will include sticky threads though, I guess, eventually, it will be implemented.

I hope that the new site will bring back the excitement that we had in the past and we will see more people around more often. We will renew this content on the new site, hopefully, the wait will not take too long.

BTW, as a winner of this contest, I'm asking one of the mods to FP my track (as a principal, I don't want to FP my own tracks :1tongue: )
