“FROM DUST TO GOLD” is the first international, online beatmaking competition introduced by THE MPC BOX, starting in May 1 until June 8, 2019.
Signing up is simple: just download the samples kit from the link below, at the cost of 15€. Following the download, possible from 00:00 CEST of May 1 until 00:00 of May 31 2019, the registration will be confirmed automatically on the email address used for the purchase via Paypal.
Using the provided samples, rigorously “untreated”, participants must compose their work, that must be no longer than 60 seconds. The final product can contain all or just some of the samples available in the kit, as long as the utilized samples are “recognizable”.
It is allowed for the participants to arrange to exalt the sample, layering, the insertion of scratches, vocals, tag or other sound effects and the use of bass from an external source. Adding such elements can, therefore, affect the final evaluation.
The completed works must be uploaded through the specific form, in .mp3 320kbps format, by June 8th, 2019. It is necessary for the participants to insert their personal Paypal email address to verify the regularity of the purchase. In case the information of their registration do not correspond to the purchase ones, it is very important to notify the email address through which their work will be uploaded in the moment of payment (notes for the seller): not doing so will lead to exclusion from the contest. Participants must upload their work no later than June 8, 2019. Uploading beyond this date will be considered a retirement from the competition and the personal data of the absents will be deleted from the database, without possibility of refunds or re-entering in the competition.
All the received works will be evaluated by our judge dj honda
The evaluation will concern:
• Consideration in the product of the kit’s samples
• Manipulation of the samples
• Personality, character and uniqueness
• Mix and master
Once the registration date expires, the date in which the winner will be proclaimed is going to be announced.
THE MPC BOX points out that all works acquired during the competition “FROM DUST TO GOLD” are properties of the relative participants. No work is going to be published in any way outside of the limits of the competition, or else uploaded on free access media players. Potential other initiatives are going to be communicated to the involved individuals.
