    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 view this month's theme below.


    Our official theme for the month of May 2015 is:

    TWO MINUTE WARNING FREE FOR ALL

    Thanks to our MMU Suggestion Thread, VIP user Erica brought up the great idea to turn an intro/outro/interlude into a whole song. That is the whole premise of this month's MMU theme. Take a short, 2 minutes or less, track and turn it into a whole song. For this theme to work, please understand that the 2 minute or less track MUST BE THE FOUNDATION ON WHICH YOUR WHOLE REMIX IS BUILT OFF OF. Yes, we are allowing mash-ups, however, the 2 minute or less track must be the main attraction. Your remixes should be longer than the original piece with this challenge since to goal is to make a full song. To clarify, we are welcoming submissions longer than two minutes. The two minute stipulation is for the original piece in which you are going to base your submission on. LPU songs that fit the two minute stipulation will also be allowed as a foundation piece. Also allowed are solo pieces that a band member has done that fits the two minute stipulation. Since we've already had it as a theme month before, VICTIMIZED is considered to be a full song and therefore will not be allowed to be used for a foundation piece for this month's competition. Please let us know what your foundation piece is when you submit your entry. We want to see how creative you guys and girls can get with this. SHOW US!

    Deadline is May 31st 2015 11:59 PM PST.

    Good luck. Please note that since this is a free-for-all month, mashups will be allowed this round.

    Also, since Soundcloud embeds don't work on all mobile phones, please be sure to include a link to your submission's soundcloud page!

    I might try this month.

    Also, can we remix Drawbar, or since it's over two minutes it doesn't count?

    You don't get to the top of the leaderboard on an arcade game by picking the easy difficulty. Hell, even Xbox doesn't give achievements on some game's easy difficulties. By the way, I'm not saying don't do a Tinfoil remix, I just hope we don't see an army of tinfoil entries.

    Just do what you want. You can't control what other entrants pick anyway.

    :awesome:

    I think you have plenty of ideas on how to expand this over even two minutes, do you? :D


    @ the contest: Nice idea, I am looking forward to all the entries! It's cool to see what an interlude/outro/intro might sound like as a full song!
    Can you also do the bridge of KTTK? If so, someone pls choose this one! :D

    I've submitted this track before, however, it meets the requirements perfectly.
    The entire instrumental was made from elements that all take place within the first two minutes of the song, Skin To Bone. Including the outro percussion throughout the song.
    Even the 'Bring Me To Kingdom Come' vocal happens before the 2 minute mark in 'Until It Breaks'.
    Hopefully I wont be disqualified, seeing as the track didn't actually win last time it was entered. I only made runner up.
    Thank you for your consideration. Please enjoy.
