    MTLDNB.COM PRODUCTION CONTEST V4.0

    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. Enjoy.





    CONTEST RULES

    [01] Must use ONLY provided samples.
    [02] Tracks must be between 5 and 7 minutes in duration.
    [03] Tracks must be breakbeat oriented. (Drum n Bass, Jungle, Breaks, IDM, HipHop, Trip Hop, etc...)
    [04] Tracks must be submitted by FEBRUARY 26th.
    [05] 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 [01].

    At the request of board members, and just for fun, the Administration has decided that contestants may add ANY vocal sample of their choice, 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.





    PRIZES

    We are pleased that we have rounded up some great prizes courtesy of Beatport.com, Rinse Magazine, MTLDNB.COM, as well as some of our local artists.
