    FEBRUARY 2013


    But first, for those who don't know...



    What Is the LPA Monthly Mix-Up?
    LPA Monthly Mix-Up is an ambitious concept intended to showcase the massive amount of musical talent currently unheard among the Linkin Park fan community. Every month, we will be challenging fans to compete and show off their musical skills, using any and all tools available to them to create their entry. At the conclusion of each competition period, our staff will then go through each entry submitted, and pick our absolute favorite to be featured on the site as the "Winner Of The Month". To promote fairness, runner ups will also be shown, but only one lucky Linkin Park fan will walk away with the honor of being featured as the "Monthly Winner"

    Now That We Have That Out Of The Way...


    Our official theme for the month of FEBRUARY 2013 is:


    STAGELIGHT: BRUISER/SPACE STATION/COMPLIMENTARY


    For the month of February, we are going to really try and push the envelope! Remixers are required to use any or all of the recently released Stagelight demos (Bruiser, Space Station, and/or Complimentary) in their entry. We would love to see musicians take the extra step in using any of the included Linkin Park sounds, stems, or samples that come with the software. Excluding these rules, remixers are encouraged to do whatever else is necessary to finish the demos! Good Luck!

    IN ADDITION, FOR THIS SPECIAL MONTH, REMEMBER TO POST YOUR ENTRY TO SOUNDCLOUD AND TAG IT WITH #LPStageLight



    OFFICIAL RULES

    as Mike tweeted, tag it with #LPStageLight and post it on soundcloud so it submits to lpstagelight.com

    Yeah, if you're using StageLight, you can showcase your work alongside other StageLight tracks. :)

    We are supposed to use StageLight to submit tracks to lpstagelight.com right?

    good track, Patrick! I like how you incorporated the bruiser riff

    Just my thoughts about future MMU themes:
    - Linkin Park x Movie Scores Month (like with 'The Raid' but this time we choose the score)?
    like Zak said in the January MMU thread: - Nu-Disco / Indie Dance (Example: http://youtu.be/s8EZFMKxtjI)
    - Chillstep / Trip-Hop
    - Funk / Soul / Jazz / Blues themed music
    - Moombahton / Chiptune (8-bit music) / Reggaeton
    I also think repeating months like 'Mash-Ups' or 'Acoustic' (and even other past styles) could showcase the progress we made & give those a chance to prove themselves who weren't around the time a theme was on...

    For our competition, you can submit your remix onto Soundcloud or YouTube. In order to place your remix onto lpstagelight.com, you will need to upload your remix to SoundCloud and tag it with #LPStageLight! Good Luck!

    And thank you for your MMU theme ideas! We will take them into consideration.


    We do not require you to purchase the software to enter. We only require you to use the demos and sounds that come with SoundCloud. How you find it is up to you. But, yes, we do suggest that you purchase the software.


    Fun remix! Remember to submit it to SoundCloud and tag it with #LPStageLight so Mike can hear it!
    I'm liking the track right now but I feel like you can definitely take it to the next level and really add more to it!

    Although we should make it clear we HIGHLY SUGGEST you purchase Stagelight, as it's only 9.99 and quite an awesome program. :)

    And Nu-Disco/Indie Dance could be interesting! Good suggestion!

    The band that comes immediately to mind with the genre is of Verona. Definitely should check them out.

    ...I actually have a REALLY cool idea for this one. I know I've said that a couple times before and it's pretty sad that I still haven't entered one of these, so hopefully I have time to get a remix done this time around.

    Listened to them and I really like their sound, kinda ATS-esque sometimes. Thanks for sharing!

    One thing though, they are in no way Nu-Disco/Indie Dance :lol: Maybe a bit Indie Dance but honestly, they're more Indie Rock than anything else (certainly not Nu-Disco). Nu-Disco/Indie-Dance is music like Daft Punk, Justice, SebestiAn, Danger, DatA and §possibly the perfect example for both genres) Oliver.

    On-Topic: seeing how this month seems to be more focused on Stagelight users, I'm probably gonna pass on this one.

    Well, in any case, this comp isn't restricting you to any particular DAW.

    Glad you like the band. They're currently writing their second album and I'm pretty excited. Love them!

    Like I said, there's slight influences off the genre but it is definitely not a full blown style. The electronic elements are definitely there and the disco (probably not nu-disco) sound can be found in the instrumentals. Anyhow, the ATS element can definitely be heard! If you ever listened to They Will Fall Like Roses, the structure definitely is similar to The Catalyst. And the second half is definitely reminiscent of IN MY REMAINS' second half.

    You can probably find the primary demo tracks (Complimentary/Space Station/Bruiser) online somewhere. Or rather, there might be a giant download on this page above somewhere. I'm going to have to remove that soon you know.
