I'll assume it's 30 minutes minimum until further notice then. I think exercyst said this genre is not that easy to launch into and he's right.

Oh Dang, Exits' not even here to defend his thread...
I forgot He's on holiday.

Well, The rules should be his alone to define.
Yet, there still is no decent way to define "house".

as far as an "incentive" goes. im really not sure. i would like to keep things as Exit proposed. as it seems atleast 12 other people are fine with it also. now this is strictly my opinion and i could be way off base here. but i also think a simpler comp may be inviting to newbies. it may seem to the newbies that the comps are some elitest club and scared to even take part. just my two cents, i could be wrong, i could be right. who knows.

do you really need to have "rules" like 10 tracks in 30 minutes or you must have a mashup? though i do like the idea of them and wouldnt mind establishing them. there is nothing stopping anyone from doing that in their mix. why must it be defined in the rules to do so, wouldnt that seperate your mix from the heard? because bottom line here is majority of the voters are gonna vote purely on track selection anyways. i think atleast one comp out of the 6+ we're gonna have this year be able to slide on the usuall rules. thats just my opinion.

free for all house competition sounds great. I prefer 1 hour time limit or at least 45mins... after all this is a house comp... the 3 genre thing will be quite difficult because house genres are redundant... soulful house can be deep and funky. Now you have new deep and tech house tunes coming out with electro bassline. does 1 track satisfy the 3 sub-genre rule...

also i think you misunderstood 90. he wasn't looking for more rules per say, just something that gives all participating djs some direction or something that unites all the mixes, this isnt a true free for all competition though since we're obviously limited by genre here.

I thought that we had agreed that this comp was a house comp not just an Electro, prog house comp....

If we're gona have a house comp then lets leave it at that rather than setting a particular type of house......

we can have a regional/worldwide house camp. I think that defines house music more than anything. Chicago and East Coast sounds, San Fran and California, Miami and most of the South, Brazil and Latin countries, UK has a very distinct sound. Germany has a huge tech and deep house scene. French house, etc... sort of like the House Olympics

otherwise we just have to many weird spin off genres like progressive psy, hip house & Baltimore club, hard house which is jumpstyle now or whatever...

Why don't we just keep it mainly House/Electro/Progressive/Tech House,
but not limit it to that.

There's nothing wrong with throwing in a little something different if you can fit it in with your House/Electro/Progressive/Tech House mix...

i know alot of tunes seem to be mislabeled. like xyz gave me reference as what he thought was prog house, but most certainly should've been deep house.

i was thinking along the lines of 50 minute max, 30 minute min. for the time length.

well i know german, new york, and miami house. the others im alittle unsure of. now to say if we did a true olympic style comp were each contestant is put under his or her own country and the listeners vote purely on the collective mixes of the country vs voting for individual mixes, may be alittle uneven.

for example there could be 10 mixes from the united states, 3 mixes from england, 1 mix from australia. the chances of the united states winning is much higher then england or australia. which i also think would prompt people not to listen to all the mixes since their voting for a country and the not the individual mix.

i'm fine with what exercysts stated as four to the floor.

so.....

"My House is your House"
Must conform to four to the floor
50 minute max 30 minute minimum
Any medium
No intro's or outro's

No it was the same as before, just had to take care of all the legal work. Whatever you were going to do before still stays the same.

I'm having troubles with this set...
everytime I start mixing with a particular set of house songs it always comes out decisively Techno...

or what about old skool house,
Can LA Style really be considered house by todays definitions?
Even my definition is becoming difficult.

I'm finding that 4 to the floor is hard to blend. Need more practice and I don't know if I have the time. e-sigh
Are smaples and mash-ups permitted for those who like that stuff?

No submission date has been selected yet since its-exit is still on vacation. I am using August 1st as a focal point. I can't speak for the other alleged contenders.
