The next competition will be from January 13-14th! See the information below.

Signups

The signups will be on January 13th at 12pm ET (New York time), and end around 8pm ET, or until we have enough contestants (whichever comes first - depending on the theme). Voting will be for one day, on January 14th, where the results will be posted the same day.

Check out the Beat This! ranks: https://www.illmuzik.com/beat-battles/?cat=bthis

*Note: check out https://time.is/ to find out the correct time difference for your timezone.

The Signup page is here (it will open up on the signup day)

Theme: NONE
Time Limit: 2 minutes
Vocal Track Allowed?: NO

===========
*NOTE: From now on there's a criteria called "vocal track allowed?". It will be yes or no. If it's "yes", this means you can have a full vocal track with your beat (acapella, for example). You can still have occasional vocal snippets (but don't rely on them too much).
===========

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!

Voting

If you are competing, you will be able to vote but not for yourself. DO NOT TRY TO CHEAT! I will be watching for cheaters. This means you cannot sign up under different names or get your friends and family to sign up either. If you are caught cheating you could be banned.

Beats

All the beats will now be displayed in a random order and without any names. All you will see is: Beat #001, Beat #002, etc. This is so that there is no favouritism when voting.

Rules

If you're not sure about the rules, read this thread.

If you have any comments, suggestions, or questions about the competition, please post them in here.

Am I OK to use a track made from an uncleared sample? Like is that OK for the competition and from a legal standpoint? It's just for the competition and not for commerical use.
Sure. I mean, legally no but there's no way for me to tell what's cleared and what's not.

Thanks guys not sure about this one then as the sample is very dominant in the track. I usually make my own samples to avoid all this kind of thing. Sucks though because it sounds so good! TBC...

ENTER. Bro, if samples/clearance was an issue for ill battles, half the user base would be eliminated 'cause of all the boombappers!

The jokes about 'don't sample a whole beat' is bit of a in-joke from a moment most would rather forget about!

So enter the damn battle, my brother!

(re the legal standpoint it's pretty redunant ... a lot of Beat This themes are sample flips. so *shrug*)
