Going with "Cloud 42" for being so diverse, but the bass is a bit too high in the mix for my preference. "One Step" coming in close second. Those vocals are amazing as is the instrumentation; they work so well with one another. I wish I could vote twice.

The rest are all also really well done.

It's weird listening to the collaborations because there are instruments in the song that sound beautifully produced and others that sound like they were recorded with a phone.

Who's Harry was good, although I think the production let it down a bit- the programmed hi hats were a bit annoying, and it descended into fuzz near the end, but the first half was beautiful.

Push was good, dat 80s snare though

I liked Death Hop, guitars sounded great, although I was expecting some vocals after the LET'S GOOOO.

I always thought that with instrumental music, the verse-chorus-verse-chorus structure doesn't work because it just sounds like a track that's missing its vocals.

Really Final is awesome.

So is Cloud 42.

It's all academic though because my favourite is One Step. It sounds properly together, not like everyone involved has had conflicted ideas. I don't know if the drums are programmed in this one, because they sound real, but too well recorded for a project like this.

Production is not a factor in my vote. It's all about the songwriting. Giving my vote to One Step, dayum.

EDIT: Something up with Harry's plays? I see only 1 play.

it was the same for me a few days ago but I definitely played it as well so it's just some kind of error

Tough choice for me, guys. It was a toss-up between Death Hop, Cloud 42, and One Step but I think Cloud 42 takes my vote.

To be honest, I think we all know who the winner is going to be It's just a case of when entity realises and decides to close the poll.

I feel bad closing the poll when Push has no votes

I can't even close the poll anyway, but it seems we have a clear winner! Congratulations to ChucklesMginty and captaincrunk for their winning submission. Go out and treat yourselves to a pat on the back.

The other pairs are as follows:

One Step: Spoony_Bard + TheTee56
Really Final/Dunnow: HailFire5150 + Spambot_2
Push: Mathedes + damian_91
Who's Harry? I Don't Have A Boat!: AtaBorMan + loose bowels aka Beard Seeking Missile
Death Hop: DisarmGoliath + whoomit

That's all folks. Congratulations to the winners, but also congratulations to all the other participants. Take pride in your ability to work with random people to an ever-changing deadline. Put dis shit on your CV or something.

I couldn't say this before because it would reveal which song I did, but Harlot Hero's, Rabidguitarist's, and Mathedes's comments made me very happy.

Wish more people had listened/voted.

Push has a vote now, happier?

I think all entries were really high standard, and well done to everybody.



Now that we can break anonymity, I'd like to continue from what entity said earlier about 'Death Hop' only having short notice etc. Basically, no fault of whoomit's but I completely forgot about the competition after an initial discussion as I didn't check my PM's or come on here much other than to do basic mod stuff. In the end, I saw this thread in my User CP and we had just under 48 hours until the final deadline/last extension.

As rabidguitarist correctly presumed, the idea was originally for the song to have vocals but I just ran out of time trying to come up with lyrics that didn't sound crap - kept the 'Let's Go!' in because it added to the weight of the hit when everything came in.


Thanks for the compliments about the guitars/competence and creativity etc. - whoomit was responsible for all the synth parts, and as they spawned my initial ideas for the rest of the track, you can thank him for the creativity there


Edit: Oh, and congrats to the winners by the way! You won by a clear mile, and congrats to 2nd place who also had a lot of votes!

I played/recorded everything. My partner wrote the bass tabs, which were the starting points for each section so he definitely helped. He wrote the bass riff which we built the whole song on.l

For 'Death Hop', we had an initial discussion and agreed originally to settle on an idea for a project I'd had for ages but never got around to ('Death Hop' = death metal and hip hop ) and then whoomit showed me some examples of electronica stuff he had done. I said what I liked and thought could become a song, he then made new ideas like that stuff, and then I forgot about everything.

Eventually, I remembered and used his ideas, to start creating a song. Showed him where I as going and what ideas I had left, and he created some extra synth parts and then I finished the track off and mixed it.

Thank you! They could have been better, had I not been an idiot and remembered about the competition sooner but I'm glad people didn't think they sounded rushed haha. Yours was awesome, and the vocals are beyond what my vocals would/could have been!

Realistically, if whoomit's and mine had won, it would have been a little unfair as you guys all spent much more time on the entries by the sounds of it, as bad as that sounds for whoomit as it wasn't his fault that our entry was so rushed.

I like.

There's no way I could have done something like this. I can't really work with someone else, especially someone I don't know on the internet. That's why I'm so impressed with these songs and wanted to know how each person contributed.

I put more effort into that track in a week than most of my tracks see in a month. Deadlines are effective!
