Mashstix Best Of 2014: the winners!!

Post Wed Dec 31, 2014 8:05 am

Greetings.

Let's cut right to the chase. You submitted your nominations (okay...a few of you did), and now it's time to reveal the winners of the...

Favourite Producer of 2014
DJ Schmolli
Runner-ups: DRA'man, Kill_mR_DJ, LeeDM101, Lizzart, Mighty Mike, Rhythm Scholar and Zigmond Fraud.

Even without submitting any mashups since May (!!), Biggie Schmolls still managed to come out on top. As you can see, second place was a seven-way tie between some of the finest producers at this site.

Favourite New Producer of 2014
mASTa hUDa
Runner-up: DJ Crossability

With four Frontpaged mashups since his debut in March, mASTa hUDa is this year's winner of the Favourite New Producer award. Not to be outdone, DJ Crossability made his Frontpage debut with "Naive Sir Duke" and improved from there.

Mashup(s) Of The Year
This year, there weren't any obvious frontrunners like last year's "Call Me A Hole." Actually, since everyone voted for a different mashup, we ended up with an eight-way tie. :1laugh:

Let's start with last year's co-winner of the Favourite New Producer award, who ended up getting one vote for two of his mashups.

Shahar Varshal - Royals Hotel California (Lorde vs. The Eagles vs. Massive Attack)

No Flash Installed


Shahar Varshal - Black Or Stars (Michael Jackson vs. OneRepublic vs. Empire Of The Sun vs. Sophie Ellis-Bextor)

No Flash Installed


Next up is my fellow moderator, who just released his own Best Of 2014 list. He also got one vote for two of his mashups.

Colatron - Bare Emotions (Radiohead vs. Jason Mraz)

No Flash Installed


Colatron - Whole Lotta Bass (Led Zeppelin vs. The Funk Hunters & SkiiTour)

No Flash Installed


Next, a mashup which I thought had a very strong chance of taking the crown.

GenErik - Mama (Genesis vs. Ludovico Einaudi)

No Flash Installed


This next award winner combined six sources to end up on this list.

DJ Dumpz - All Safe Things In C (Lilly Wood & The Prick vs. Nelly Furtado + 4 more)

No Flash Installed


Making instrumental mashups did not prevent this next award winner from getting a nomination.

Zigmond Fraud - Plane Fall Riddim (Dutch E Germ vs. Minotaur Shock)

No Flash Installed


Finally, a veteran of the mashup scene gets his due.

DJ Moule - The Magnificent Gang (Yes vs. The Clash vs. The Sugarhill Gang)

No Flash Installed


Aaaaaand that's it for the Mashstix Best Of 2014. Before I conclude, you might want to check out a few other "best of" compilations from the mashup scene.

As for my final thoughts of the year, I might as well deal with the elephant in the room. The forum was bustling at the beginning of the year, but as it progressed, it got rather quiet. That was rather disheartening to see, but nonetheless, thanks to everyone for making this site what it is.

Here's to more activity and, of course, better mashups in the new year.

Thanks to whoever voted for me, it’s much appreciated! Congrats to all the winners! Also thanks to SP for setting up the vote.

I look forward to making more mashups in 2015 as well as hearing more quality ones from the Mashstix community!

It would be great to see more activity on the forum for the New Year from both new and returning members.

Cheers

Thanks to everybody who voted for me! I really apprciate it! :1smiley:

Tho I haven't posted a mash since may '14 it doesn't mean I'm not on Stix every now and then and it makes me happy that people haven't forgotten about me. :1wink:

So maybe this reply here will be my only post in 2015 so chances are that there's a new king next year around this time! Good luck y'all and keep the mashup spirit alive!!

Peace,
Schmolli
