Nov 2014 Production Compo Entries

Post by renegadegenius » Mon Dec 08, 2014 8:17 am

Had a great response to this production compo - 22 entries!!

May have to see if we can get a couple of EPs out of this batch due to the amount of tunes we've had come in rather than just 4 tunes.

Ok, voting as follows -

Download the pack of tunes & listen through.
Pick your favourite 5 this time (due to how many there are).

1st gets 5 points, 2nd gets 4 points, 3rd gets 3 points... etc.

I'll then add everything up and put the results up on here once voting has ended.
If you're on here & the IAAO forum, you only need to vote on one forum.
No voting by people with no posts (Unless I know you're one of the producers involved).

You have until the end of the 21st Dec to make your votes.

The tunes:

Enjoy & massive thanks to everyone that's entered!

****
Quick update-

Due to the number & quality of entries we've had, the top 12 entries after voting will be put out on forthcoming Paranoid releases (After artists consent of course) :)

So get those votes in!

Ah wished I'd entered this Comp. Just don't get enough time to churn out a track, plus I take far too long in making them. Will have a bash at the next one for sure.

So I thought the least I could do was vote. Great tracks btw.

Track 10. 5 Points - Pick of the bunch for me. Very different to the rest and has that classic 91' sound. Love the bleeps and bass. Would love to collab with this artist for sure.

Track 20. 4 Points - Best use of Breakbeats I have heard in a track for a long while. Top top job.

Track 9. 3 Points - Love that bass sound and then that hard hitting stab sound comes though. Great use with the extra hats over the breaks.

Track 8. 2 Points - Love the old dark pads in this, the bit around 2.50mins is ace. Takes me right back.

Track 6. 1 Point - Love that mid section. Dark and just twisted enough


Best of luck to everyone involved.

Hard as nails to pick 5 out of that lot!

10 = 5 Points
20 = 4 Points
03 = 3 Points
17 = 2 Points
13 = 1 Point

Who ever did number 17 that def sounds like it could have been done by 4 Hero/Manix & taken from some lost 1993 DAT tape they found in the attic!

Great comp

16 = 5 Points
20 = 4 Points
06 = 3 Points
13 = 2 Points
22 = 1 Point

Tune - 16 = 5 POINTS - Love the raw energy, few off key bits but sounds like this producer was loving it.

Tune - 20 = 4 POINTS - Slick, Fucking pukka production. Props, reminds me of Don FM and AJ Flex

Tune - 6 = 3 POINTS - Nicely done very dark. Would have made my number 2 if more unique, but 2 was better production, very very close.

Tune - 13 = 2 POINTS - I used to love this sound, this producer has worked damn hard with the crunchy beats. Proper tech. 31 records esq.

Tune - 22 = 1 POINT - Mad beats, hard tunage but I'm getting old, I would have scored it higher if made at 160bpm. Sorry mate. (pretty sure I know who that is as well)

Keep changing 2 & 3 around. Hard decision but done. LAST EDIT.

FUCK THAT WAS HARD. TOP CALIBRE OF TUNAGE

Amazing amount of entries! Frigging difficult to choose my favourites to be honest.

10 = 5 points - Proper late 90 early 91 tune, really authentic sounding. Awesome.
16 = 4 Points - Nuts. It's all over the place! Were you snorting speed when you wrote this? :) Sounds like something out of Scotland.
3 = 3 Points - Quality. Everything you expect from a hardcore tune: rave stabs and an uplifting piano section.
6 = 2 Points - DARK. That mid section reminded me of Bizzy B stuff from back then.
15 = 1 Point - The sounds chosen compliment each other nicely.

Firstly, who did what :


1 - Exit Point
2 - DJ Lien
3 - Orchid (DavidR)
4 - Bassraver
5 - Leonized
6 - RenegadeGenius
7 - Firefox Demon
8 - Pursuit
9 - Breakbeatscientist

16 - Cronin
17 - Skunk Association (Goemon)
18 - Ridegroover
19 - Christian Inichol
20 - Coldsnap
21 - DJ Paranoia
22 - Aize




THE RESULTS
-----------


1st (38) - Ruffneck - Phase Shift
2nd (36) - RenegadeGenius - Feel The Power
3rd (28) - Coldsnap - Devils
4th (25) - Orchid (DavidR) - I Want U
5th (24) - Skunk Association (Goemon) - Nightmares

11th (07) - DJ Lien - Welcome To The Future
12th (06) - Leonized - Living in Darkness
13th (06) - Aize - Music's Hypnotizing


Will get in touch with everyone in that top 13 list & we'll go from now.
Already got a few releases for Paranoid in the pipeline, so these will be out after that - probably split into a couple of releases


Again, cheers to everyone that entered & voted. Will get sample digging in the new year ready for the next one

Ok, updated the artist list & found where I'd gone wrong :)

All the votes were correct though ;)

Once I get some time, will contact all in that top list to get the wav files.

Cheers :)
