Contest - get featured on iTunes 2011-08-13 14:19:54


Hey everyone! Our collaboration album "ReMotion Vol. 2" is approaching quickly and Kr1z and I are proposing a remix contest! The 2 (two) best remixes will be featured on the actual album itself. The album is going to be distributed via iTunes, Bandcamp, Amazon, etc. All revenue made by your track goes to YOU!

We take care of advertising and whoring out the album, as well as getting it in the said digital stores. You do not pay for any of that! 136 copies of the first album (ReMotion Vol. 1) and over 300 single tracks were sold, so you're in for quite a bit of money and exposure!

The rules are:
1. It must be a remix of one of our songs. You can remix ANY of Kr1z' or F-777 songs. It doesn't have to be one from ReMotion Volume 1.
2. Genre can be anything (though most songs on the album are electronic).
3. Thou shalt not use copyrighted material!
4. Upload a 1 minute demo to Newgrounds and post a link to it in this topic to enter the contest. Do NOT post the full song on Newgrounds, we don't want to give away free downloads right?
5. Deadline is Octobre 20th, 2011, 23:59:59 NG time.
6. Judging is done by Kr1z and F-777 and is based on production quality (mixing and mastering), originality, catchiness and overall appeal. Try introducing new elements that make it an actual remix, avoid the use of blatant presets and samples.
7. Midi files with melodies can be provided if needed.
8. Multiple submissions per person are allowed, however, only 1 track per person can be featured on the album.

Anyone who does not win the contest will still be given a mention and some exposure for remixing our songs and you will be allowed to post your remixes on your newgrounds pages, youtubes, or other sites.

Thanks so much everyone! LET THE CONTEST BEGIN!!!

Sure midi's are ok :) We can't give out flp's though, sorry :)

(its mentioned in the first post: "Midi files with melodies can be provided if needed.")

PM me or Jesse with the song title and we'll send you back a midi file! ;)

Great stuff. My opinion on remix comps though is that if you're going to do it justice, give us some sample packs or at least some midi files to work with. That makes the process incredibly quick and leads to much sexier remixes.

We are handing out midi' to everyone who asks.
(its mentioned in the OP and a few posts later too)

But good point about samples! It's kinda impossible to make a sample pack for every song me or Jesse ever made, so lets just make them on request :)

I've asked for a MIDI of 'Glancing Back' twice now and I don't have it yet. :(

Same here, though admittedly I only asked for it yesterday...

I see Jesse sent midi's to all yuo guys :) yay!

It can take a day or two, I think Jesse is a bit overwhelmed by midi requests xD

Response to Contest - get featured on iTunes 2011-08-20 11:47:31

Indeed, paypal it is :)

If you don't own a paypal account, it's free to set up.
If you don't want paypal I guess we'll find another way to send the money ;)

Welp, this is what I have based on what I heard. The song is coming along nicely, but seeing as though there's only a minute that we can show, I couldn't show the real heart of the song :'(... but I guess that's for later lol.

Hope you like what I've come up with so far (in that one minute preview lol)

To be perfectly honest I would rather insert a hunting knife into my urethra than get featured on iTunes.

It has it advantages (exposure, more revenue) and it's disadvantages.
We put iTunes in the title because it is (one of) the biggest digital music stores, but if you read the first post you'll notice we'll use more distribution ways than just iTunes.
