Electronic Music Contest?

Hey everybody,
I was cruising the site when I found the first forum about contests. The ideas were pretty nice, a contest for each music genre. But then, as time passed by, only HipHop contests took place. There are members on MakeTunes who don't make HipHop, but they don't get the chance to compete because there's no competition for their music genre. For example, I make electronic music, and I want to know if my music is "better" than X's music, but I can't because there's no Electronic music competition.
My point is to host a new competition, dedicated to electronic music, to give electronic musicians a chance to see where they stand among other musicians. If you agree with me, share your ideas with me, and maybe we'll be able to host a new competition.
Looking forward for your replies
Caesar

Good idea.. just post up a competition forum and find some judges and you good to go.

I was thinking we could rely on votes, what do you think?

there's actually been three electronic music contest on here....they were all posted by ed....his computer has been on the fritz lately....id say the best way to start a comp is just by doing it...if you want some ideas click on the previous contest link up on the left hand side of the page....in the past ed always used samples to make it a contest....thats pretty cool but it kinda limits the track in a way but makes things some what fair.....i would have to say if you want to be in the contest you might want to talk to someone else in throwing the comp for you.....the other thing that makes a comp a lot of work is the prize....in the past its been samples and programs....hope that helps....i might sit down and throw one for you myself....Ive been in the last two and i haven't made a track in forever....let me know if you want me to do the work for you or not.....your choice man...i don't want to take this from you if you want this

It seems you're excited by the idea. Well if you're up to it, maybe we can host it together, that way neither one of us will make any track! ;) About the competition's rules, I say no limits, except one, each conestant has the right to enter one track only, which means equal chance to everyone, because if someone entered 5 tracks, he'd have more chances of winning than another guy who submitted one track.
Do we really have to give a prize, I thought that the pure joy of winning would do it :), but if we do need to give some prize, I'd be happy to share my collection of VSTs and samples. (I got about 30 VSTs). So what do you say?

well sounds like you have it figured out man.....i was really just going to post it if you wanted to make a track your self.....its all you man....i will say that you wont get much of a response with out a prize....vst's and samples are the perfect prize because they're easy to send and download.....ive always liked the idea of matt chipping in and featuring the winning track on the home forum but you'll have to talk to him about that....just set a time limit man and post the contest and rules on another forum and you might be suprised at the response....there's a lot of new producers on here....i cant wait to hear what everyone comes up with....cheers!

I don't want to participate, I just want to revive the Trance/Techno/Electro spirit in here, HipHop is taking too much place (I don't like HipHop). But I prefer not to launch the competition now. I want it to be big! But now I can't do what I have in mind for the competition because my desktop is not here... I think we should wait...

Dj Caesar , man what are you talking about bro ? we can tell your a new to maketunes . you need to check out this site more, then you will see that things are not what you think thay are bro . most of the competitions have been Trance/Techno/Electro. just check it out and you will see bro . the hip-hop stuff came late in the game .

DJ Caesar's picture

Woo, relax man, Frank Marquis already told me that. Let's not think in the archives, let's think of now. Now, there no electro competitions, so why not host one? And I am new, so take it easy.

Dj Caesar, nice idea. I particularly like this cos I dont make this genre of music but it sure sounds like much fun experimenting on it. After all I'm the Jack of all Trade, Master of Most. He He.

I'm down... I've been in this electronic mood lately.... Electronica is what I started producing way back in the late 90's (Was it really way back... I'm I really getting old?) With FL 8 in my arsenal now, as well as Komplete 5 from NI, I got a electronic track brewin in me. Plus I've been listening to a helluva lot of downtempo and electronic post-rock stuff all last week. Plus some great techno from my raver child days (c. 1998) like some Leftfield. I'm down! Post a forum... make some rules and let the word be known!

Be good... or just good at it
You keep it pimp... I'm a keep it gangsta!

Check out all my stuff here
