Your final mix will need to be returned to us no later than the 13th of June – delivery instructions will be given
TIPS & CONSIDERATION
Before entering please consider the outline and criteria of the mix standard. We would like you to see this as a great opportunity to showcase a produced mix to a high standard equal to a commercially released mix album. The mix doesn’t have to be recorded live and can be produced using software if preferable and using software FX.
You can edit the tracks down to smaller lengths, mix/mash between them, edit or cut between mixes/versions in a creative way, loop sections, or smoothly mix them together.
A lot of the tracks and remixes carry a longer playing length and creating edits or hot cue style mixing will be appreciated as much as a smoother transition.
You have your creative freedom
