Tips and Guidelines
Genres - This remix competition is not genre specific, remix the track in any style you want.
Samples - We will be looking for clever usage of the samples given. What we don't want is to hear a completly different track that barely uses any of the original samples. Remember you are remixing this track so it needs to somewhat resemble the original.
Vocals - Although not completely compulsory to the remix we will be looking favourably at tracks that incorporate a vocal element and/or a variation of the original vocal samples, so get creative.
Length - Try to keep the track between 3 - 6 minutes.
Usage - Usage of these samples and of your completed track are for this competition and this competition only. You are not allowed to use the sound samples in your own productions. You are not allowed to license your remix in any way (label, movie, online site etc.) You are not allowed to publish your remix on any sound carrier (CD, vinyl, website, tape etc.) You are not allowed to sell the sound samples of this remix kit. You are not allowed to distribute the sound samples of this remix kit. And finally you are not allowed to publish this remix to the internet anywhere other than the remix submission page on that includes posting it to your artist profile page, such uploads will be rejected.

Special Thanks...
