Deadline: Sunday April 29 11:59 M.S.T.
The sample competition, where everything but the bass must be sampled! Below you will find drums that you must sample, you must synthesize your own bass, and you must hunt the rest of your samples down on Newgrounds and SoundCloud. You may not synthesize anything other than the bass.
Producers sign up for the scavenger hunt, and you are in charge of bringing people together to work on this track. Below I am going to present to you a long list of items that you may or may not be able to complete. You will be judged on how effectively you do each item and how many you are able to complete. The wub wub bass, for instance, does not need to go through the whole track. You just have to use it long enough to check it off then you can change things up. You also need to obtain the rights for everything on your track. You may not sample anything without having permission to put it on the 2012 CLABTRAP album. When you are ready to upload your track make sure you list which items you checked off and explain where in your track it is.
1. Shout Outs from local Celebrities
2. Live instruments
4. Wub Wub bass
5. Self recorded percussion (door slams, knock on wood, etc)
6. Tuvan Throat Singing
7. Emotions to include: Prozak Happy, Wrath of God Angry, Chill Swag, 70s Sex Mode
8. 8 bars of Rap from a Newgrounds MC
9. 8 bars of Rap from a SoundCloud MC
10. 8 bars of Rap from an MC not on NG or SC
11. Most Clever rhyme with CLABTRAP
12. Words to Rhyme: scientologist, autoerotic asphyxiation, 01010011010101110100000101000111, Muammar al-Gaddafi, Honorificabilitudinitatibus, "I got in one little fight and my mom got scared"
13. Find out Emergency's middle name and include it somewhere in your track
14. Use self-recorded sound effects (ketchup squirt, musical saw, cat meow)
15. Get someone to do Scat Singing on your track
16. Find a female vocalist and get her to sing!
In the coming weeks 46 MCs will be whittled down to one sole survivor. Welcome to the 2012 MC Knock Out. If you have never battled before make sure you read the BATTLE RULES carefully.
-four verses, 16 bars each (around 40 seconds)
-underlined MC goes first and chooses beat from CLABTRAP's beats
-3 days per verse unless you get an extension before the battle starts
-Read the BATTLE RULES closely or you might be kicked out
For a smaller version see the bottom of this post.
Due to the large number of MCs some will be battling in a "Pre-Round". This will occur at the same time as Round 1. We will wait for all the battles in Pre-Round and Round 1 to finish before moving on to Round 2, then it's business as usual.
There are plenty of dope MCs in the Pre-Round and MC placement in general was relatively random. MCs were divided into groups to spread the skill around evenly. From these groups battles were randomly selected, allowing for a few tweaks here and there. There are a lot of strong MCs this year, both the Pre-Round and Round 1 have some strong battles. After that it gets insane.
Underlined MCs! You must now choose a beat from the battle beat list, research your opponent, and record the first 16. You have three days from now, and if you're in the Pre-Round please go as fast as you can because you have two battles before Round 2.
Check the hype tracks for research. PM Red if you need help.
MC1 tell me what beat you choose, I will add your name here so everyone doesn't jump on the same beat.
