    The next competition will be from July 2-3! See the information below.

    Signups


    The signups will be on July 2nd at 10am ET, and end around 8pm ET, or until we have 20 contestants (whichever comes first - depending on the theme). Voting will be for 1 day, on July 3rd, where the results will be posted the same day.

    Go here to signup (click the "signup" tab - it will open up on the signup day)

    Theme: 120BPM
    Time Limit: 2 minutes

    • Your beat MUST have a BPM of 120! (or it can be 60)
    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 (depending on the mood I'm in).

    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 favoritism 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.

    Yeah because some are 120 but it's actually 60. When I load tracks into Traktor and scan for the BPM, sometimes I see half of what it's supposed to be. So just to clarify - 120 or 60 BPM.

    got some good beats here today..i find it very funny how many members stay away from the themed competitions...honestly the themed ones are the easiest beats to make because you have more direction than you do if you just created a beat without...jmo

    Your beat was right up there man, it was well done. I do think @DEEZ BEATZ 's beat was the best one for this theme. There was one that wasn't 120BPM but I put it in anyway because there could be a slight chance the bpm scan was off maybe?

    I was expecting the beats to be 60 but show up as 120. Not sure who did what but overall I liked it. I'll make an announcement soon about the next one (no theme!).
