    JANUARY 2013


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



    What Is the LPA Monthly Mix-Up?
    LPA Monthly Mix-Up is a new and ambitious concept intended to showcase the massive amount of musical talent currently unheard among the Linkin Park fan community. Every month, we here at the LPA 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" with the next round of competition starting the moment the winner from the previous month is chosen. To promote fairness, runner ups will also be shown, but only one Linkin Park fan will walk away with the honor of being featured as the "Monthly Winner"

    So, How Does It Work? (Official Rules)
    In order to make the contest more interesting and more challenging for those who enter, every month we will be posting a theme that all entrants are required to abide by to be considered for feature on the site. There will be no limitations on key, BPM or length (so go ahead and make a 10 minute entry!), but each submission MUST adhere to the genre (or genres) provided by us to be eligible for the competition.

    Users must submit their entry as a reply to the this thread, and may use SoundCloud or YouTube to host their works. All SoundCloud submissions must feature THIS GRAPHIC as the album art, and likewise all YouTube videos must contain the aforementioned graphic in some format with the words "LPASSOCIATION.COM Monthly Mix-Up Entry:" appearing somewhere within the video/soundcloud upload title. This is done to help spread word about the monthly competitions so that more submissions can be made possible.

    [Note: Including the above graphic in your submission (as either soundcloud album art, or somewhere in your youtube video) is a requirement. Failure to do so will make your entry unable to be considered in the competition. ALSO IF YOU USE SOUNDCLOUD, PLEASE ENABLE DOWNLOADS OF YOUR TRACK AS WELL AS EMBEDDING.]

    ALSO ALL ENTRIES MUST BE COMPLETELY ORIGINAL, AND MAY NOT CONTAIN BACKGROUND MUSIC FROM ANOTHER ARTIST. THIS IS YOUR OWN WORK, APART FROM THE LINKIN PARK TRACKS.


    To keep in good standing with Warner Bros Records, The Linkin Park Association will NOT be providing links to legit instrumentals/multitracks at this time (due to licensing/copyright restrictions), so it is the sole responsibility of the entrants to obtain the files needed to create their entries. It is possible (and very easy) to find these tracks via a search in Google, however; to protect ourselves we will not be hosting these files until we one day hopefully receive permission from Warner Brothers to do so.


    How Can I Enter?
    Easy! Just upload your submission to Soundcloud/YouTube following the rules above, and submit it via a reply to this thread. At the end of this month (January 2013) we will go through every submission and pick our favorite(s) for feature on the front page of the LPA. We encourage everyone to submit their entries (regardless of technical/musical/vocal proficiency) as we really would like this project to become something that every fan feels welcome to become involved in. The staff here all agree that the music community for Linkin Park has for the most part (apart from official competitions) gone completely unnoticed, and this is our way of giving attention to fans out there looking to get their talents heard!


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


    Our official theme for the month of JANUARY 2013 is:

    DRUM 'N BASS

    Following the success of MMU contests from the past year, we are proud to introduce to the LPA community the first contest of the new year! For the month of January we will be remixing Drum 'n Bass for any one or combination of Linkin Park songs. This is a genre driven Monthly Theme, and there will be no other factors or rules. We are excited to hear the various creations out there and we wish you all good luck on your entries! Let's kick off this year with some genre-bending remixes!

    This sounds fun. Might do Powerless. Next month's theme should be classical music or 80's style pop

    It's too difficult to do pure classical since the software isn't always up to par and it's difficult to incorporate vocals

    I have no idea what the restrictions are, but here is one I made a while ago. Audacity was fun

    *non-working link*

    Ps. Soundcloud says this is blocked, but I can still access it. If that's the case, I'll put it on YouTube.

    Great to see MMU kicking off for the New Year, looking forward to a year of great remixes.

    Great remix Patrick, awesome stuff! 2:41 to the end is my favourite part. Great job dude, this could be a winner already, and the month has barely started!

    Hey! Can't seem to access this link, Soundcloud says it "can't find it". Upload it again so we can have a listen :D


    Would be cool to see Glen this month too. Calling Glen! Are you out there? :p
