Epic Hop Challenge!

Welcome, everyone, to the Epic Hop Contest, a fun contest with PRIZES for all Soundation users. If you are confused by ‘epic hop’ it is an evolving all-inclusive genre of music focused on storytelling without traditional song and the hybrid use of genres.

Why Epic Hop?
1. Epic Hop is a new genre created specifically and exclusively on Soundation.
2. Epic Hop is a challenging test of your creativity and your ability to bring genres, sounds, and themes together in new ways.
3. Epic Hop is an all-inclusive genre (you can draw from any themes, genres, and experimentation to make the best tracks you can).

You have until

(January 7, 2015) to create your best Epic Hop track. I will pick my favorite tracks, but feedback from other users will play into the outcome of the contest. The final winner will be chosen by the following: creativity, composition, and general mixing and mastering.
1. Creativity: How different are the genres you used? Is the theme of the track creative and creatively executed? How creatively have you experimented with sounds, themes, and music genres? etc.
2. Composition: How well does your track evolve? How much work have you put into making new or original sounds? etc.
3. Mixing and Mastering: How well is your track mixed? How smooth is your track? How well is your track mastered? etc.

1. Criticism is allowed, but no putting anybody down!
2. Swearing is not banned, but please don’t overdo it or bully anyone in anyway with them.
3. No WIPs posted to this group please.
4. Please only post ONE FINAL track.
5. Creating your own sounds is EXTREMELY recommended. Please don’t just drag and drop sounds for your entry. Does not matter if you use MIDI’s or LOOPS here, but please put an effort into changing the original sound patterns in some way. You may use any studio, but preferably Soundation.
6. Tracks can be any length, but the recommended length is between 3 to 5 minutes.
7. Please only submit a NEW track made specifically for this contest. An old track that fits the description likely will not win.
8. Do not upload any copyrighted material that you do not own or do not have permission to use.

1st Place – Any music t-shirt from my store (or any product from my store of your choice at equal or lesser value). Plus ONE PRODUCT from the Sound Shop.
2nd Place – 2 products from the Sound Shop.
3rd Place – 1 product from the Sound Shop.

@EZ: Yeah, that's fine. I don't think it's gonna be an issue for collabs. We'll figure it out!

If I can get my song released on Unreal Sound in time for this contest, my song I'm entering is a collab. We'd figure out prizes together I doubt it would be too big of a deal.

Alright, but seems to me that there are people that have many votes that are probably gona beat us anyway :) And very talented people too, probably people like Sean Foxx, Cyclosa, and Crescendo... But who knows anything can happen. If we win, Tom and I will discuss over it.

Wazzup peoples!? Thanks for the entries peeps. @HeadBandz: Yup, that works. Glad to have you here! @Fizik: hmmm... I guess that's ok unless a bunch of people object. I didn't really refer to that in the rules, so I I can't fault anyone for it, but not sure how prizes will work in the event that you guys win. Could make things a little more interesting... :)

@Fizik the Dubstep King Except for if you make it in the top three, you'll have to split the profits. So, if you were to make it in third place, I guess that you each would get a half of a product from the Sound Shop? And half a t-shirt if you make it in first? This would just complicate things for everybody, so you probably have to do this solo.
