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.

@Elizalde: Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna push that date back too. I'm thinking about early JANUARY, so that people can pick out their prizes without having to worry about being away for the holidays.

Nice work guys! @Fizik: A lot of electronica tracks kinda fit the Epic Hop definition already since they pull from all kinds of other influences, but I'd say that submission works. I'm mainly looking for stuff that's the most challenging genres to put together, but if someone slays a track with closely related genres, they may end up winning. Epic Hop basically is what it isn't.... if you follow me. It's not pure rock, or pure hip hop, or pure trance etc... the more you can tell the different genres in it, the more it is Epic Hop. ;-)

It's all good peeps! I'm voting for everyone who enters to get things rolling. @Tac 9: It's currently DECEMBER 20, but I may push that back past the holidays so people can pick their prizes without worrying about being away. @Elizalde: Alrighty. Well, I hope you change your mind, but if you're too busy no worries man.
