CONCEPT OF THIS COMPETITION: WATER. Your tune must have some connection with water, whatever that means to you. Ambient seascape, musical metaphor for anything liquid or a remake of 'It's Raining Men' THE SAMPLE PACK: http://www.sendspace.com/file/kz6uo8 Sample pack provided by Elmaruk and dirty breaks, big ups guys. Rules: - One tune per member. Non members are welcome to join the board and take part. - Tunes must somehow be drum n bass. From Bossa Nova to Skullstep, any style is welcome just as long as it feels like dnb and is water related. Whatever that means to you, this is up to you to decide. - Only sounds from the sample pack. Go crazy with any processing that you can think of, but no additional samples, synths, or recordings you are however allowed to record vocals, singing, rapping, spoken word and also water. but no funny business with beat boxing or making synths out of it, it has to be vocals. you can record whom ever you like. - Remember to keep notes of your processing, as you may be asked to prove how you came up with any sounds in your tune. this has never happened but it could.
