THE RULES:

So, this month challenge is remembering the fallen ones. Whether by natural causes or unfortunate circumstances, it's always sad to see them leaving this place behind.

Example of artists: Michael Jackson, Chester Bennington, Chris Cornell, Whitney Houston, Christina Grimmie, David Bowie, Beethoven, 2/3 of BeeGees, Elvis Presley, Robert Miles, Prince... you get the idea


Rules:

At least one source must contain the fallen artist vocals in the mix. Exception to this rules are if the instrumental is strongly identifiable as "their sound" (Like MJ's Thriller or Robert Miles's Children)

It also doesn't necessarily have to be a "sad" mashup. It could also be a happy mix, like remembering all the cool stuff they accomplished and stuff.

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 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)

satis5d: They Burned Something Just Like This
The Chainsmokers & Coldplay and Men At Work versus Donna Summer, The Doors, Whitney Houston, The Bee Gees, and Queen

To honor the Fallen Ones, I have included the acapella tracks from five different deceased vocalists and one non-vocal musician. May they rest in peace. Many of them died far too soon. :1cry:

The Chainsmokers & Coldplay - Something Just Like This [instrumental]
R.I.P. Greg Ham (of the band, Men At Work) - Down Under [flute]
R.I.P. Donna Summer - I'm A Fire [acapella]
R.I.P. Jim Morrison (of the band, The Doors) - Light My Fire [acapella]
R.I.P. Whitney Houston - I'm Every Woman [acapella]
R.I.P. Robin Gibb (of the band, The Bee Gees) - Tragedy [acapella]
R.I.P. Freddie Mercury (of the band, Queen) - Under Pressure [acapella]

Version 2 (volume corrections, Jim Morrison pitch adjustment, etc.)

This is going to be the A-show mashoff. Already HCD has brought his five moves of doom, and satis5d responded with a strong run-in. Babyfaces who are over will be cheered, and heels who are over will be booed!

Even though I am planning to compete against you, I will play the carpenter for now. Jim is clashing @ 2:42, you need to bend some notes.

Nice edits Satis5d. :1smiley:

I agree. The instrumental can come up a hair as well.

In the meantime, I'll be waiting.

Well, considering the glorious prize package that (doesn't) come with winning this contest, I personally feel that we are doing the mashup community a disservice to not help each other make the contest submissions the best they can be before we vote on them, as long as we aren't leaning too heavily on others for input.

I appreciate the feedback received and I will be updating my mashup as the month progresses.

Oh definitely yes, I was just trying to be funny. The point of the mashoff is to inspire the best from the community (mission accomplished!), and the feedback serves that purpose.

Ermmahgawd...I struggle like mad when given a brief. My process is waiting for a brain fart whilst listening to music all day, but I thought I'd give it another go.

Brainfart protocol initiated; new mashup incoming...
