How about an ILX DJ mix competition? (closing date for entries: Monday 5th November)

We could put submissions into this thread and then do a poll, what do you think?

what's the prize?

This would be cool.

The Brainwasher, Monday, 27 August 2007 02:53 (thirteen years ago) link

Okay, if people are interested in doing it, we should upload entries to this thread.

The rules are:

1. Only one mix per DJ, and should be you mixing.
2. Mixes should be roughly 60mins long (give or take 5-10 mins)
3. Should really have been mixed for the competition. This means you have from today to record the mix. Obviously no one can tell when the mix was made, but in the name of sport it should have been mixed after 26/Aug/07.
4. When you upload your entry, make sure you include your DJ name, the name of the mix, and what you used (decks/Traktor/Ableton/etc), and a tracklisting.

Not sure whether to have separate competitions for people who use decks and people who use software - what do you all think?

You have 1 month to get your mix in 26/Sep/07 is the closing date for entrys. Then we'll start a poll a week later (to make it fair on those who got their entry in late). The winner gets a hearty virtual slap on the back and the general adulation of the ILX massif.

Erm... who or where do i upload my mix?

DJ Moody J, Monday, 17 September 2007 11:55 (thirteen years ago) link

Hehehe, even I forgot about this. Shitty. Yeah, wack it up on here.

the next grozart, Monday, 17 September 2007 19:33 (thirteen years ago) link

this might stand a chance of being a good idea if you moved the deadline back to say, Christmas or New Years.

I was supposed to read Jane Eyre today. Instead I started and finished this. But I told my mom that I finished Jane Eyre.

Tape Store, Saturday, 29 September 2007 22:07 (thirteen years ago) link

Uploaded: Tape Store's 'i've never been to a dance club, but i bet it sounds like this' Mix

Note: All mashups by Tape Store on Saturday, Sept. 29 (with the exception of Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin's "Bigger Than Yr Yard (Tape Store remix)"

I used Audacity for the whole thing. Thanks to zshare.net and other sharing sites. Also, thanks to the Australian programmers who created Switch.

My name is Chris. This only explains ten seconds of the mix. Do I need a tracklist? It's more fun without it...

Tape Store, Saturday, 29 September 2007 23:00 (thirteen years ago) link

I just skimmed my way through Jane Eyre. Grace Poole not killing Jane = ;_;

I'M SO BORED. I MADE A COVER.

Tape Store, Sunday, 30 September 2007 02:13 (thirteen years ago) link

I forgot to do all of the details, and I quite like this mix so, like I said, that laffy taffy is as good as mine.

A little over 60 minutes over various minimal house/techno and that sort of thang. Made with DSS DJ Which is essentially a Traktor clone but with less bells and whistles. I made a cover, but not out of boredom. I mixed this in the beginning of September, but nevertheless I'm banking on it to win me fame and or fortune.

I think I just picked out my records, now to find time to record. It's too late in the evening now. I'm stating this to make sure I follow through with it. It's going to change your lives. Or not at all.

dan selzer, Saturday, 6 October 2007 04:08 (thirteen years ago) link

I was really excited about my mix a week ago, but it sounds duddish now. I'll probably get a program and create something better.

Tape Store, Saturday, 6 October 2007 04:28 (thirteen years ago) link

Inspired by this thread I made a new software mix with varied stuff I've been playing this year. Being mostly psychedelic trance I doubt it wins the competition, it may annoy the jury.

Starts darkish and minimal, progresses to a melodic climax and comes down a bit emotional.

Thanks for listening!

I'd been promising myself (and others) I was going to record a series of mixes for a year or two now but kept putting it off. This was fun and hopefully will inspire me to record those mixes as well.

dan selzer, Sunday, 14 October 2007 05:13 (thirteen years ago) link

oh yeah.

Equipment used: 2 Technics SL1200 mk2s, a Rane TTM56i mixer, Sennheiser HD-280 Pro headphones, recorded directly to Audacity free audio software on a Mac G5 using a Mark of the Unicorn 828 mk 2 interface. In Audacity, I made 1 edit to fix a really messed up mix that I had recorded twice while recording the mix live (picked up the needle and redid the mix then edited out the flubbed take) and I fixed some volume issues. Please excuse any digital distortion, I didn't set my levels well.

dan selzer, Sunday, 14 October 2007 05:17 (thirteen years ago) link

Dan, is that "For Those Who Like to Groove" sometimes known as the "Hollywood Sweat Mix"? I've been playing that quite a bit lately. Looking forward to listening.

Spencer Chow, Monday, 15 October 2007 07:46 (thirteen years ago) link

Hollywood Sweat Mix is the mix right after the one I played. I'll have to listen again to see what the difference is. There's 2 other versions on this 12, and 2 versions of a pretty awesome song called Lyrical Rundown, which is less hip-house and more hip-hop.
