Blockchain Music Challenge Season 2 - Round 3!

Blockchain Music Challenge Season 2 - Round 3!

10 Days To Enter And Earn Points!

Welcome to Season 2 Round 3!

This season will be genre specific and we are going to be spinning that genre wheel to keep you on your toes lol. :D This will be a multi-platform contest, so if you are on Steemit, Whaleshares, WeKu it's all good.

For the 3rd round genre, we are going to go with Hardstyle!

You can use this following for inspiration, to get your creative flow going:

Syren & Nadia Qualita Can Definitely Bring The Heat!

Dayummm I luv this set ahahaha :D

Go to the 10:10 Coone - Black Submarine & 34:25 Kronos - No pain no gain! :D

You will have Ten(10) days to produce your entry!

The official contest days are: August 7th 2019 to August 18th 2019 at 11:59 PM EST! That leaves us 3 days to judge the entries, and get the winners selected. Each new round will be on a 14 day schedule, so keep your eyes peeled for new information about new rounds.

Posting Your Entries

Post your entries where ever you feel comfortable, just make sure that we can hear your music! Since the "other site" is using questionable practices, I am suggesting that everyone use Soundcloud, you make it private and shoot me the link so we can use the bot to play your awesome tunes! It makes it easier to play for the shows, so let's make it happen, thanks! :D


The prize pool for each round is as follows:

FIRST PLACE WINNER: 4 SBD + 10 Steem + 40 SG + 40 Points

SECOND PLACE WINNER: 3 SBD + 5 Steem + 30 SG + 32 Points

THIRD PLACE WINNER: 2 SBD + 3 Steem + 20 SG + 26 Points

FOURTH PLACE WINNER: 1 SBD + 2 Steem + 10 SG + 20 Points

Each round's SBD prize pool is courtesy of: @enginewitty, @guiltyparties. Steem Prizes provided by @jackmiller and a mysterious unnamed benefactor.

The contest will run for 32 weeks, on a 14 day cycle. Whomever racks up the most points for the season will take home 1st place.

Judging Entries

All entries will be judged with a focus on creativity, sound quality and technicality. So bring your A Game! The judges will be @d-vine @jeffleinwand @chiefmappster and myself, plus a guest judge here and there... which will be announced when we have one for any particular round.

Live Contest Show!

There will be a live show on the SMA Discord Server every other Wednesday at 9pm utc, hosted by @d-vine @jeffleinwand and myself, where we will discuss entries and play them for the audience. Arrangements will be made in advance to make sure that we can play your songs. We are looking forward to you joining us for the show!

The Rules of the Road:

  1. Your song must be in the genre specified.
  2. Must be your song! If you are collaborating with someone we need to know.
  3. Make a post about your song/entry. Add a link from your post to the current bmc post!
  4. Add a link to your post in the contest room - blockchain-music-contest!
  5. Your entry must be posted within the Ten (10) day time period.

Everyone is welcome to enter the contest, and we are also looking forward to hearing from some more EMA artists.

Thanks, glad you will be following along. :) As for judging, if something comes about I will holler at ya to see if your still interested. :D

08.08.2019 05:11

This is awesome. I can sponsor this contest as well with SONIC tokens by voting your contest posts each round to help build up a prize pool for the contestants.

08.08.2019 04:20

Awesome, thanks my friend! :D That def sounds like a plan, and very much appreciated. Things with Choon, the prize pool took a nose dive. This is great news indeed. I am quite sure that people will be pleased for sure. :)

08.08.2019 05:10

Hardstyle hey... Another new genre... Going to have to listen in over the weekend but if it's what I think it is then I may have to dig really deep here haha! I'll drop the link in our Discord and see if we can get more EMAliens in!

Awesome, can't wait to hear! And thanks! :D

08.08.2019 17:12

Puhhh I know now why I did not know what Hardstyle is - lol - this is really not my kinda music ;) - not sure if I should take a week off or if I torture myself with those sounds - haha

08.08.2019 10:16

Where is your sense of adventure? :D You got this ;) Lolz.

08.08.2019 17:12

Haha my sense of adventure is still there BUT this music hurts my ears ;) - there are not many genres where I say : no thanks - but this unfortunately is one ;) - we will see what's happening - maybe I'll find an alter ego within me to do this - lol ;)

08.08.2019 18:00

Felt the same way, hacked it with humour. <3

18.08.2019 19:13

Haha you weren't the only one thinking that @psionic-tremors! I had a feeling it wouldn't be my cup of tea either with the actual name of it called "Hardstyle"... I need to summon a lot of help from YouTube on this one haha!

08.08.2019 20:58

Haha - again in the same boat ;) - I wish you good luck with this style!! - I guess I'm taking a break but I'm curious to hear your entry :)

09.08.2019 12:25

Yea I'll have to do some research for sure and will probably just make this genre one time to say I gave it a go... Then run away as fast as possible once I've done it 🤣

09.08.2019 13:17

I've never specifically made a hardstyle track, but have come close in some of my tracks, so I figured I'd give this a whirl.
Here is my entry:

09.08.2019 14:55

Awesome track Buf! Keeps that vibe of hardstyle nicely with the 150BPM and gnarly sounds associated with the j
genre (I've been buffing up my knowledge this week, can you tell 😂).

Hope to have mine all good to go in the next couple of days. Got to find some vocal samples, crowd noises, some massive claps and a cheesy lead synth melody to keep it fitting with the Hardstyle sounds from that Soundcloud set!

12.08.2019 13:33

Can you tag me in these so that I don't miss them? The feed gets so congested that it is all too easy to miss the very things that I'd like to prioritize. :/

Well this is just great! :D Here's my entry

Hardstyle with the vocal collaboration of @Ravenmus1c!

11.08.2019 16:45

Cool, thanks for entering. :D Nice collab!

11.08.2019 16:56

Ooopps wrong account! LMAO what a day, anyhoo killa collab.

11.08.2019 16:58

hahah i get you, it happens to me a lot with my accounts, thanks!

11.08.2019 20:40

Definitely not my cup of tea. Watched part of the video, though, because looking at the deco, I suspected it was shot at Tomorrowland. Can't find any confirmation, but I'm pretty sure it is :0)

12.08.2019 10:49

Cool, thanks for putting up an entry! Things was looking slim with just 2 so far. :D

13.08.2019 22:14

Well there's still a few days left for folks to enter! You need to give us part timers some time to get our heads around a new genre 😁 so glad it's 10 days otherwise I'd be doomed!

13.08.2019 22:24

This was a struggle and I am stuck in a love/hate relationship with this song at this point but I decided to share it anyways! haha

14.08.2019 18:37

LOL I can totally relate to that my friend! Thanks for your submission. :)

15.08.2019 14:55

Awesome :) thanks for your entry! Appreciate ya!
