After a a bit of a delay, we are proud to present our board members with the fourth installment of the Montreal Drum and Breaks Production Contest.
This time around, we have returned to our original format of providing a sample pack put together by our board administrators.
The Contest Rules are as follows:
 Must use ONLY provided samples.
 Tracks must be between 5 and 7 minutes in duration.
 Tracks must be breakbeat oriented. (Drum n Bass, Jungle, Breaks, IDM, HipHop, Trip Hop, etc...)
 Tracks must be submitted by FEBRUARY 26th
 Must be a mtldnb.com board member. If you arent, all you have to do is register. Its free.
We have decided, however, to make en exception to rule number .
At the request of board members, and just for fun, the Administration has decided that contestants may add one (and only one) vocal sample, as short or as long as they wish. After consideration, the conclusion was drawn that it would have little or no effect on the production quality and overall composition of each track, which is the main essence of how the tracks are evaluated.
The good people at www.beatport.com have been gracious enough to provide out winner with a $50 gift card to use on their website. Our first place winner will also receive the 100% Canadian Mixed CDs "The Beat Drops Here" and "Warning", complied by MC vivid and featuring artists such as Visionary, Caddy Cad amd Montreal's own Subtone.
Our second prize winner will receive a one year subscription to North America's number one resource for Breakbeat music, Rinse Magazine.
In addition, the top five tracks chosen by our judges will receive a prize pack containing:
-One MTLDNB.COM T-shirt
-The Official MTLDNB.COM Compliation, featuring the best of Montreals Breaks and DNB Producers
-CDs from Montreal Artists Hardsteppers, R Cola, Basement Wigger and Zark Behida
There is 2 judging rounds. The first one lasts about 4 weeks when board members are invited to vote for their 5 favorite remixes. We then compile the results and the TOP10 favorites move on to the next stage where they will be judged by industry professionnals.
All entries have to be submitted by FEBRUARY 26th. We will give you access to an FTP and provide you with a password on request only. Send a PM to Mayday or a staff member when you are ready to upload your track. I will be moderating the duration of the contest and will be happy to answer any questions via PM as well.
Please upload your tracks as 320 mp3 using the following example:
