Mashstix Monthly Challenge #2 - Ian Fondue Wins!

Post Mon Oct 01, 2012 7:46 am

First off this is a copy 'n' paste job from Lee's first monthly challenge:

1. On the first of every month, the challenger posts a new thread containing details of the challenge.
2. Challenge tunes are to be posted in this thread using the players in the same way as you would on the main mashstix board (i.e. via official.fm, soundcloud or your own webspace), including details of the tracks used.
3. New tunes only please - don't just re-post old material.
4. You have three weeks to submit your entry - until around the 21st of the month. After 3 weeks a poll will be set up on the thread (if there's more than 10 entries then we'll work out another way of voting) and the voting will begin (not sure what the maximum poll length is, but it'll probably be about 3 days)
5. The winner (a) has their track frontpaged and (b) sets the new challenge on or around the first of the new month.
6. After that, all challengers' tracks can be reposted in the main board (if you think they're up to scratch that is!)


So on to the important bit. Rules for this month's challenge couldn't be simpler:

NO DRUMS

Reason for this? It's all too easy to hide behind a big beat and stripping that away should really showcase your "key" (pun intended) mashup abilities, plus your production skills have nowhere to hide. Very small amounts of percussion are acceptable, but we are talking shakers, glocks, blocks, that kind of thing. So either get yourself a set of multis and hit mute on all those drum tracks, or find yourself a minimalist instrumental.

Anything else goes, uptempo, downtempo, 3/4 to 9/16 and from Acid House to Zydeco. Good luck, and your three weeks start..... now

Yikes - you do realise I'm a drummer, right?

This should be fun...
