Sounds like a fair idea. I mean, the people who make dnb arent just influenced by their own country's music (we've moved past the 90's now its the age of the internets.)

Well I never said anything about being influenced by people's countries' music, but EU vs. US is a great idea. However, Russia's not in the EU, and it wouldn't hurt to open it up more, so how about Europe vs. North America?

Ok, I won't set up the rules until after I get a definite list of participants. Here's the updated list:

North America

Ackute
IZK
DJ-Chilvan

Europe

Para
Skela
la-yinn
AlexCo
MrSaint
Stan-SB

and Alchemist94 is left over... so if you could tell me what team you're on, that would help. As you can see, we need more people on the North America side now... go tell people!
Also, since there are 6 people on the Europe team we could do it this way - 2 songs per team, 3 people per song. So we need 2 or 3 more people for North America to get this started!

Well yeah, but not too much since it's a collab, and anyway both teams make two songs if we get 6 people per team. Just make sure they don't take over the song lol

this is getting interesting :D

just one thing, how does the team collaboration work? because we dont all have the same software its gonna get complicated, prersonally i think a mix of all the tracks from one team and a mix from the other would be better, then there's no artistic differences to sort out, a collaboration of a team that size is just gonna get very territorial and people are gonna feel like they didnt have enough to do with it. either that or make it a monthly knock out king of dnb competition, just think that would be easier to manage and very fun for all and would be interesting to see what people come out with when pressured into finishing a song each month (or face disqualification).

if not...

UK DNB FTW XD

I was thinking about that actually. A mix is the most appropriate way to attack it but I digress a bit. Maybe it would be interesting to see how the different hemispheres handle the collab situation. I think once teams are settled it might be a good idea to take this to two separate threads like they did a while back with the aura collabs.

Yess... I was beginning to think this wouldn't take off. Thanks for the interest guys. To address some concerns first:
Stan, I don't think it matters that we don't all have the same software... you could always send wavs or ideas back and forth. For example, let's say you have 3 people, one with Reason, one with Cubase, and one with FL. you guys could all make parts and then send it to somebody to put together into a final track. Personally I think it'd be cooler to see everybody's ideas go into 1 track, rather than making a mix. And I know the teams are pretty big, so you guys could split up into two sub-teams, and make 2 tracks total, with 3 people per track. It would be cool to make this monthly lol... maybe :D
And Quarl, yeah I think it'd be cool to see such long-distance collabs with so many people. Also, I think making a thread for each team once we get it sorted out would be a good idea - as long as those Europeans don't look at our thread for ideas >:( lol

So now that I've addressed that, here's the updated list of participants:

North America

Ackute
IZK
DJ-Chilvan
Cornandbeans
Quarl
Rig

Europe

Para
Skela
la-yinn
AlexCo
MrSaint
Stan-SB

I guess I'm leaving out Alchemist94 because he hasn't gotten back to me... and I also hate to leave out Mid-Night and astheashesdecay, but if we do another one of these, which we definitely should in the future, we'll definitely include you guys. However, some people might drop out, so keep watching, because you could take their place. MrSaint hasn't been here in a while, so if he isn't coming back, you could take his place, astheashesdecay.

Can we get this going now? :D

Mister rig. If'n you're sure about jumping on, want to start things off with a NA hemisphere DNB thread? I'd do it myself but I feel like your better at breaking the ice. Besides, ctsg? I remember that shit. You did a really good job at sticking through that one.

I nominate you American Hemisphere thread captain.

I quoted you in response to the idea of getting things started, but that post was directed at rig. And yeah, the sooner we get things started the better... I'd hate to jump into thread making before both teams have a designated thread starter. This way we can all start on the same day... also, since it's a comp, and end date should be proposed relative to the start date.

ok, can we make the starting date officially the 20th? I've got some work I need to finish up tomorrow... but I should be good after that. so that gives everyone a day to get all their ideas together before we start this.

do you think a month is long enough for the whole thing?

Too many electronic innovators came from the UK.

I'm sure the US has something, but I still haven't found our own innovations.

For some reason I thought this was about real signed artists, which would then be against the rules.

In that case I have no idea what the hell I'm talking about.
