1.Take an Engine sound, or machinery sample or drying machine recording.
2.Put it in RAW at the beginning of the song.
3.Turn it into a bassline over the course of the song.
4.Make the song into a DNB Dubstep Dumbstep Glitch-hop moombahcore etc track with that bassline; Bonus points if it's crossbred with industrial.
5.???
6.PROFIT!

Really, the industrial thing is just so the bass "fits" the track better, I think.

I could be WAY wrong though.

correct. He nailed it right on the head.

Please do this.. imo it wasn't really that hard to figure out but everyone is at different levels of comprehension I suppose.

Used a tractor engine to make parts of the bass, aswell as rythm stabs.
its in its raw form in the intro.
i decided to take it to a diffrent direction than what i guess most of the submitions will be,
and i added some more melodic parts to it :D good luck everyone ~

I guess I had no luck with last month :c Oh well here we go again! here's my submission for this month.

This was challenging and rather confusing in some cases... but fun nonetheless! I tried to follow the rules as best I could.

-I infused a car engine sound into a dubstep track
-I used it in it's raw form at the start then changed it up and wubbed it from there
-I included industrial percussion in a dubsteppy fashion
-I made it as FILTHY as I possibly could

So hopefully that gets it close enough to qualify.

that was fucking awesome!

I'm blown away by the talent coming out of the woodwork for this one! And yes this definitely qualifies - I love how you showed the entire sample at the beginning and then altered a bit of it throughout the song.. brilliant! :)

the other songs I've listened to are crazy awesome too so far :)

thought I'd link this.. this is a cute example of what you can do with a bunch of industrial sounds in a song:

Oh awesome! thank you! tbh I was a little worried I'd misunderstood the rules. But I'm glad I got it and I'm even more happy that you liked it so much :D

Still looking forward to more submissions, this month has such an interesting concept!

sadly it doesn't qualify due to not following contest criteria. So far we only have about 2 songs that qualify atm.. a testiment to people not reading the rules..

wait what? Only two songs actually qualified?

Err, if no not enough people join, the deadline gets a extended a bit, right?

yes there is always a 2 day sweep period after the deadline.. if not enough people qualify then this is nulled and the submission deadline is extended to the end of the sweep time.. so you can see that there are several safeguards built into the system. At long as we have 3 though the contest is still a success.. as that is all that is needed to place.. we had that happen.. once before I think in NAC history.. where only 3 people made it.

the songs that HAVE qualified however from the scores they are getting are proving to be some very solid pieces with some very good reception of the site as a whole.. this could qualify as a valid cross genre breed which would be interesting to see many more songs like that in future :)

well regrettably only 3 people qualified in the end as the others were disqualified for MAINLY NOT READING THE VERY SIMPLE RULES. And one rule I stated very clearly this time was that those that did not adhere strictly to the contest criteria would indeed be disqualified.. so no complaining!
