my understanding of rule #4 is that we create an entirely new music track which incorporates the vocals from Mission Control, and the rights to the winning mix are wholly owned by Eskimo Disco.

now let's say that the winner wanted to commercially release a version of their remix which does not have Eskimo Disco's vocals. doesn't the remixer retain the copyright to the music s/he produced?

Hehe, I was thinking of being cruel and asking that if Mikeys mix wins using the royalty free samples, would the samples then be owned by 54Rec and thus no longer royalty free, :lol:

(and before anyone joins the debate, this IS meant as a joke!)

ha ha very funny. It's actually a good question though?? I have used SOME royalty free samples and I have manipulated them so they sound different as well as making the beat myself.

One question I had was this rule:

If you intend to use samples, they MUST be all royalty free. (The winner will be required to sign an agreement stating that no Copyright Protected material has been used. Please note; you will be legally responsible if any Copyrighted samples are discovered).

When and where would the winner have to sign an agreement?

C'mon guys n gals, all this has been answered.
The rules a pretty fair and simple and I think you will find that they are gonna be
similar in most competitions of this nature.
What about the competition beatport just hosted, you actually had to BUY the
samples!!!

If someone comes up with a slammin riff that they feel is good enough to stand
alone as a track, you got a contact at a record label right here who may be able
to give you a yes or no to signing it as its own track.
If that killer hook wins the comp, why would you want to use it again in another track?
Even the Venga Boys changed one chord in each of their tracks!

The way I see it, (feel free to correct me as im no lawyer)
If you love the sound of an instrument you created, that is still yours to use as freely
as you like with another score.
As long as you dont sample your winning mix, you are simply creating a sound
with your software. It would be like a session drummer having to buy a new drum
kit after every signed recording otherwise.
Or even a voice over only being able to make one recording as their voice is
now copyrighted and owned by someone else!

The prize on offer is rather nice if your a bedroom producer like myself and thats
getting your name out in the wide world.

Please dont think im having a go at anyone here, I mention this as the same
questions seem to be getting asked in one way or another and it sounds like
some people need a little re-assurance that their not selling their soul to the devil.
(Can you just confirm the bit about our souls lovegravy....?) :hum:

Anyways, best of luck to all the entrants :smt038
The deadline is nearly up!!!!

I really really wasn't, I promise - I read and re-read and re-re-read all the other posts over and over and I genuinely didn't understand the answer to this. I've never entered any of these competitions before, so I don't have the experience to know any of this stuff. I was only looking for help.

Is there any answer to the questions about the length and the vocals?


Absolutely no apology needed my friend, if you read it all and are still unsure all you can do is ask.
My 'observation' certainly wasnt aimed specifically at you, I would have quoted you
and given a :smt064 if it was :lol:

As I understand, "let the creative flow loose…any genre; any style" means do what
ever you please.
Those poor guys from ED may feel like someones made voodoo dolls of them
when they hear my masacre, and Ill guess mine wont be the only one.
Forget the scissors and go at it with a real tool! :smt067 :smt072

Just thought I'd drop by and leave a little message...

Now that I've fired my entry off to 54 Records! :D

I kept quiet about it on purpose, even after Chunky had asked me if I was entering, 'cuz I didn't want you all raising your game! LOL (Not that anyone would probably need to of course! :cheesy:)

Anyways... The cut-off point approaches rapidly... Good luck to all!

Why do you think I didn't tell you (or anyone else) about it!! LOL :D

Actually, if (and thats a very, very big if) my remix makes it into the top 10 (so gets previewed here) then, once compared to everyone elses, I have no doubt I am going to be very embarrased indeed! :oops:

Still, I'm looking forwards to hearing yours too! :D :D

As I said before... Good luck to everybody... Deadline is getting closer, only 4 hours to go so make sure you get your entries in....

I'm off out for a 'few' hard earned beers!! (Play nicely while I'm gone!)

I hope you sent it in RT because rule 6 doesn't state the time at which 1st April 2008 commences. It doesn't appear to have been restricted to a certain time zone.

Never mind the winner, I want to hear the top 10 tracks! Weren't we supposed to get a listen to them before the winner is announced? As the winner is announced in 3 days shouldn't they be appearing soon? Or were the words 'working days' missed out after the 10? :cheesy:
