Perhaps start a thread for people to suggest tunes for the next remix?
Could be a bad idea - I bet they'll be over 10 different ideas :lol:
Need ones where the main samples are available, otherwise it won't work.

Think maybe a sci-fi / horror film sample fest compo maybe in order. There's always good samples in films that can be ripped. Plus it gives a good opportunity for some tracks to actually get put out there properly on releases if they're good enough.
:lol: That's true, yeah.

Like the idea of writing a tune using a film as the theme though 8)

I've already got several film samples, so once I've got a load more, we'll see ;)
Plus it means more original tracks being made rather than remixes of other stuff.

Yeah anything u have would be good - just PM it over & once we have a nice big batch of stuff, then away we go :)
As long as the samples are of decent enough quality.
I have downloaded a few sci-fi samples in batches off the web, but most were really poor :(

Sounds like a plan. A sample pack similar to those Lost In Space samples I uploaded some time back would be more than enough to get the creative juices flowing. :)

Unfortunately pretty poor recording or mp3 encoding which destroys the overall impression. The "hurt you so" break sounded like a 32kbps mp3 :( Shame!. I demand an explanation from the producer after voting why the recording sounded that bad.
I recorded the whole thing onto cassette tape thinking it would do me a favour adding grit and old vibes, I know as I played it back it sounded shit but I couldn't be arsed to redo it again (a bit silly of me yet). I just hope I saved everything to disk so I can get it all up again. - will have another go minus the tape thing haha!
I thought it was the sound of the break that made it myself, proper nasty!

It's been an idea for a while really (since sampling Bladerunner for my Fear tune last year), but remembered again when I was finding a sample for my remix of Interfaces Godzilla tune & the remake of this (sample at the start from Hellraiser II) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbPeSiGyeE4
Which film did u sample by the way?? I'm more a sci-fi buff than horror.

Gonna try to compile a batch of samples which I've ripped but never used over the years & if people have anything that could be useful as well, send them over - once we've got a big batch, we can begin :)

Maybe we could compile a freebie EP download of the best ones to get a bit more interest back in the tunes.

Ahh haa - yeah that dvd ripper is a great program - for dvds with full DD, track 3 seems to be the one for the voices. Great for getting pretty clean samples.

We've already had a HC compo.
Others we've also had:

Acen, Tango, We Are IE, Hit The Decks, Edge1, Yolk, Predator, Charly & another I remember was where Fav was the only entrant (some hiphop samples I think that one was).
