Huge thanks to everyone involved in this years beat battles, Some jawdroppingly dope entries throughout. Great to see so many talented people showcase
their own style of production and aspiring beatmakers put their own knowledge and skill to the test. Each round has seen a few new names take a punt
or atleast share some interest in listening and voting.
enjoy your newyears.
we'll be back once again next month. (provided the world doesn't blow up)
I shortlisted 3 beats and decided on 6, 10, 12. i will have another listen to each one and make my decision.
I have a question though...in beat 12 just before the drums drop in is that a type of sweep pad that has been added in?? would this mean
disqualification for breaking the rules?? i stand corrected if it was made out of part of the sample.
props to everyone who entered, some really quality entries involved this round.

**RIGHTS - SOLITARY CONFINEMENT OUT NOW!!!** Feat. Paradox, Nate Deezy, Aero D, DJ Jamu and Chris Labs.
Really felt 2, 3 and 6 ending up having to choose 12 mostly because it was a little harder to hear exactly how they made the beat. When it's more
natural then it's a lot easier to just listen and enjoy it then you step back and realise how dope it is.
Mad entries though, wish I had the time for this month.
ALSO: Quick n easy marketing tips: Votes are low yet listens are high so here's a few ideas to help generate more interest and involvement.
1. Follow people from the soundcloud, doesn't matter if it's temporary or whatever people are responding to the titles.
2. The page and each beat on soundcloud should have a link to the voting, make sure to mention it will support the producers and prizes etc.
3. If there's a main soundcloud page it wouldn't hurt to put a sampler of each beat on there each month, just like 10 seconds of each beat making
little over a minute on one track in total. Surely it wouldn't take too long. Should definitely do this for the facebook as well.
Just my several cents, all that basic stuff could take just an hour and would pay off a lot. Cheers
Problems and dues I got em removed
Swallowed the truth and my tolerance grew
Thank god I did not enter,as I would have got smoked.Instead I got smoked and enjoyed all the entrys.So many good ones,I think using whole song is the
way 2 go.As 4 the beats I just voted 14 ,It's not the best mix or fattest sounding,but sample chops r as dope as fuck,it 's raw and I'm nodding hard 2
Beat 1 is my JAAAAMM! Mega fucking props to whoever crafted that, but fuck you at the same time because now I need to wear a stupid neckbrace
everywhere I go! Also, don't suppose you used "Glitch" Vst for that? Pm yo
Also, very sad I missed out on this one, an unfortunate event plus a busy month lead to me missing out on this
Would've loved to have entered the last one, but here comes a fresh start in the new year.
Merry chrissy eve and have a loose as fuck new years eve!

It\'s just whenever I try and register as that it\'s already fucking taken so I\'m constantly having to chuck in \"oner\" or
\"one\" or \"onez\" etc.. because I have no imagination.
