Talking 420 Competition

Hey folks,

It's that time to come up with a set that you would hear while you are celebrating 4/20 (Official Smoke Out Day). So get ready to come up with a psychedelic drug set to share with all the other peeps here on DI. I'm not going to make up any rules yet other than the fact that your set has to be psychedelic aka trippy. Drug Music!!! I am not encouraging anyone to do drugs. I am encouraging everyone to come out of their regular state of mind and come up with a trippy set. This thread is for ideas from the DJs, the listeners and everyone else so I want EVERYONE to share their ideas. Now remember, this is the thread to shoot ideas and input. When I open the official thread on April 1st, I do not want to hear complaining from anyone. You share what you want here and if you don't, when I open the new thread, shut the f*ck up with the BS. So without further a due, get those ideas out everyone (DJs, Listeners, and Anyone Else from DI), what does 420 mean to you and post it here so we can all learn together and tailer the rules.

Have fun everyone!!!

Because 4/20 is the great smoke out and when you blaze, you get high, when you get high, things are all trippy such as music.

release the hate child

My thoughts about this are

1.) Psychdelic themed
2.) 45 minutes
3.) Any medium i.e. vinyl, cds, software
4.) Smaples of course
5.) Are we going anonymous? If so no intro's or outro's i.e. dont introduce yourself...
6.) And finally,,,um no thats it nothing more

Cool

I'm with ominae here, maybe I smoke for too long now but that psychedelic aspect very rarely occurs - and that's nothing to do with the quality of substance.
Also the psychedelic thing suits some genres more than others so it is a lil limiting maybe?!
To me it would be mission success if I can make out the bong in the background or the whiff of a nice spliff.
Blazing is more hammock than jump around to me.

quite happy with Jeremy's suggestions (really anonymous again??)
and of course we don't encourage drug taking but I think we all should be really heavenly heavily stoned when putting the set together.


what about inclusion of one mash-up? (one of the stoned variety of course)

Yeah getting all trippy is pretty rare for me too...it happens but not often. Usually it's just pure chillness

the anonymous is only a suggestion. personally i prefer it that way cause it keeps me from flaming mods....jk... i like not knowing who the dj was until the end. imo it also makes people listen to all the mixes as opposed to just listening to mixes of dj's you know who spin that genere. but it is only a suggestion.

i would say if you wanna do mashups, go for it. i think we should keep the rules to a minmum for this one. i dont think we should make a mashup a part of the rules, however people should be inclined to bring out they're creativity to seperate their mixes from the rest. since its a general no holds bared your gonna need that "wow" factor.

since theres a mixed feeling on the pyschedelic theme and chillout keeps coming up. how about you get your choice. you can do one or both.

themes

1.) Pyschedelic
2.) Chillout

I think that can be pretty broad on the choices of generes.

Pyschedelic could fall under not only pys or goa, but acid, trippy, trip hop, progressive trance..etc..
Chillout could fall under lounge, a state of trance, hip hop, reggae, breakbeats, minimal..etc..

You could even use smaples or remixes of songs but like Jimi Hendrix, Led Zepplin, The Who, Pink Flyod, Bob Marely, hell even George Clinton. Smaples from movies like How High, Half Baked, Cheech and Chong...i think i just gave away alot of ideas there

It's definitely going to be anonymous. I like the suggestions so far and yes, psychedelic or chilled is good so far.

I think a range, perhaps 40 - 50 minutes or 45 - 60 minutes (longer especially for those trying to mix chillout since those tracks can be 15-20 min each)would be more appropriate than a specific 45 minutes.

As for being anonymous, most definatley. I have much prefered the anonymous comps to the non-anonymous.

Just my thoughts I can't wait to hear what everyone comes up with

If the music isn't psychedelic its not really music.

I always found chillout to be psychedelic.

i think time may be dependant on number of entries. the number of entries has doubled since the original comps. however looking at tracklist when mixes have been held to around 45 minutes varies significantly. some people have tracklist around 5-7 tunes, while others have had track list in the high teens. so its really up to the dj not the length of the tracks. so if someone who is spinning chillout and only plays 3 tracks most likely wont have as many votes cause all they did was just play 3 tracks. not to say that they couldnt add smaples or remix those tracks. its really just gonna come down to how creative you are and of course track selection.

Ghozt- true and yet i can find it to be trance like also. so i think with those two themes theres such a broad range to choose from. As everyone percieves things differently.

Glad we agree on those choices hehehe. And yes, I agree with th 45 min rule. Like JM said it's all up to the DJ to spin the number of track they want. If tracks are long well then it's your job to make the mix and cut out the stuff you want to hear.

^not all genres can be spun as fast as others. with drum n bass for example you can rock 20 tracks in an hour no problem, but with goa you can't do that without taking away a lot of the essences of individual tracks.

i favor 60 minute sets

Thumbs up a lot more "heavy-hitters" joining in this time. hmm

Just my 2 cents and a bag of Hershey's kisses

1- I think the overall theme should be inclusive of the type of music one would listen to, with/without friends while toking the e-hookah, with/without "special herbs", or having a brew or 2, etc. Visualizations encouraged or included.
a) each participant will, of course, be submitting music they would like to listen to (under those conditions )
2- psychedelic is defined as: Of, characterized by, or generating hallucinations, distortions of perception, altered states of awareness, and occasionally states resembling psychosis.
a) so your mix can be psychedelic in nature and/or chilled or some new level of warp
3- a chilled mix, energetic mix, or a blending of the 2 dimensions can be used
4- any and all genres of music allowed, including non-edm
5- tag teams allowed - time limit to be determined (60 minutes perhaps)
6- smaples optional
7- mash-ups optional
8- definitely anonymous
9- original tracks by participants encouraged and allowed (i.e. the participating deejay created one or more tracks used in their mix)
10- listeners/participants should be in an "appropriate" state of mind when listening to mixes
11- can't vote for your own mix (tackiness at its best)
12- have fun with it
13- preferably 45 minutes (dependent on number of entrants)
