If a listener identifies the DJ correctly 1 point is awarded to the DJ/mix. At the end of the month or however long... mix with the least amount of points (people were clueless as to who was the DJ) wins.

I know this sort of alienates new people on these boards, since we're not exactly familiar with their styles but I think its a wonderful exercise for people that have been around long enough who's mixes we can almost always recognize. Like me for example.
I was thinking of 30 minutes because if everybody will try something new, they might not have enough tunes or experience playing with new style.

Anonymous
30 minute mix
~192kbs mp3
Free For All : any genre, any medium, no themes (unless you choose to have one)

Again the point is to try something new so that your fellow DIers wont be able to recognize your mix.
This contest wont be scored in the same way all the previous comps were, because this particular contest is not about who made a better mix. It's about who can convince everyone that someone else made this mix. During the official thread I will give out a list of participating DJs.
All the listeners/DJs will vore on who they think made the mix in the following fashion:
dj1 - dj name
dj2 - dj name
dj3 - dj name
dj4 - dj name
etc...

Every time someone guesses the dj correctly, that particular mix will be given a point, mix with the least amount of points wins.

All participats, DJs and any people tuning in, will vote via PM to me as to not give any hints about the mixes. I will post those in the thread at the end of the competition.


Is this clear or does it sound like gibberish?

btw as you can see in my signature, my birthday bash mix will air today at 3 (eastern) on the minimal channel. If you choose to tune in, pardon my half assed mixing, I wasnt exactly sober when it was recorded. Also it wont be minimal by any standards, mostly deep tech house.

Well played.

Nah.

I want to take part in these, but I have quite a way to go with getting better with my flow/transitions. So I'm honestly not sure if I'll join in or not.

Haha, Pin the Mix on the DJ...I probably will have time to "vote" on this one, and I'm going to have a good laugh at myself by being wrong about all of you...as long as all the really experienced people don't make us listen to too many train wrecks in an attempt to fool us

What if I made a mix that totally sounds like me. People will think, "well this sounds like him, so it can't be" And then vote wrong

I cant vote, but I dont see why i cant participate. I dont think one less vote will impact this comp much.
