Time Limit: 2 minutes

  • You must make a beat by sampling this. (Right-click and save.)
  • You can chop the music and do what you want but we MUST be able to tell it's from the sample.
  • You an also use vocal snippets (talking, for example) from the Ninja Turtles cartoon or movie throughout your beat.

You can use whatever sounds you want, samples, synths, just remember to read the rules for the rest of the restrictions. What the judges will be looking for is originality, creativity, mixing skills and overall dopeness!

Rules for competing

  1. In each competition, there will be a "theme". Check the main page for info on what the current theme is.
  2. Only registered members can compete.
  3. Only single competitors can compete, unless otherwise specified (like a theme for teams).
  4. The beats will be voted on by all members.
  5. Your beat will be hosted on IllMuzik.
  6. Your beat MUST NOT be longer than 2 minutes (unless otherwise specified for a theme). That's plenty of time to show your skills. It must be an instrumental (occasional vocal snippets are OK), and you can only submit 1 beat!
