Yeah, me too. Oh well.

I've had a lot of fun, a lot of frustration, a lot of false starts, and a lot of tea (some of which went cold) but at last, it's done and submitted. Along the way it was rocking out with loads of heavy metal guitars, at times it was up to 27 minutes long and mostly beatless, and once it resembled born slippy.nuxx too closely, but finally it's ended up as a downbeat bass-heavy semi-ambient excursion with a bit of rock, a bit of sax(!), a bit of experimentation, and a lot of underworld. I did have to chop 6 of the 14 and a half minutes out to get under beatport's file size limit though :-/

You can hear the 2nd remastering of the 7th mixdown of the 8th version of my 3rd attempt at remixing Bird 1 here:

Several of these mixes are better than anything on the official remix package.

10 most spinned
10 beatport team picks

so really what we should be aiming for is to get as many of us as possible into the top 10 spins wise!

Is there anyone else who has done a mix?
I meant persistence in a way that the fans still have to be anxious for their act making no. 1 weeks after they first heard about the remix contest. In the age of the proverbial fast-paced media landscape, this might be rather demanding on some people's attentiveness.

Also, as is often the case in Internet contests, fraud will probably tip the scales to a certain extent in favour of a fanbase with a certain media literacy: Double-voting and swaying the play count don't seem too much of a problem, what with multiple Beatport accounts and multiple IP addresses.

Anyway, I agree with your pledge to spread the word (and IP addresses) and not stop spinning the dirty contributions. Will comply now from work...

Beatport seem well aware of this. Spin count is used as a way of filtering down the submissions to help build a shortlist that the band will judge. In this case it's the ten with most spins, and a further 10 chosen by beatportal's staff. There are 4 prizes, with a total value of $5550, of which just $50 goes to the one with most spins.

Basically, spins are good, and if the dirties can get ours into the top 10 then they will definitely get heard by the band (which is a prize in itself, imho), but there is also a safety net for mixes that are good, but don't have a fanbase.

Btw, voting hasn't started yet - the voting period is 2nd to 16th November.

Hello All.
I've been lurking on the dirty forums since, oh, around '98, I guess. It was a much different beast back then. Good times.
I had to finally sign-up and post something when the remixes started rolling in. There is massive talent in this community. Congratulations to everyone that submitted. I'll be spinning them all throughout the week.

I've been writing and recording short loops and phrases of this and that for the last ten years and for this contest have finally completed my first ever track. Recording is easy, mixing and do-it-yourself 'mastering' are the tricky parts.
Please check out my mix and share your thoughts. It's a sparse mix completely rebuilt around the vocal and a bubbling nord lead or two. I'd love to hear suggestions/feedback from the dirty crew.

Thanks all!
