As promised, here we come with some big birthday news and well, the launch of the “Metalectro Vol.03 Original Track Contest”!!! The time has come once again for Metalectro to raise hell, as the final 10 winning tracks of the contest will be featured on the Metalectro Vol.03 Compilation, to be released on Jet Set Trash! This time we teamed up with 6 artists who provided us with some killer “sample packs”, out of which you will be asked to produce an original track. The final track will be released as collaboration between you and the artist(s) whose sounds you have used. In case you are wondering who are the artists we teamed up with, have a read below:

Andy’s iLL, aUtOdiDakT, Geometry, La Musique D’Ordinateur, Q.G. and WASA3I!!!

Besides providing their “sample packs”, the above artists will also be part of the judging panel as “special guest judges”. As for the rest of the judging panel, your usual suspects will be filling the gaps with Metalectro’s most destructive blogging duo Zak Electrohead Kilmister and Hannakiri Hellectro, as well as Jet Set Trash of course, who will be responsible for the release of the Metalectro Vol.03 Compilation. So, before you grab those “sample packs” and get started, check out the Contest Soundcloud Group (where you can also find the link to download the “sample packs” provided) and make sure you read the Contest Rules and Terms & Conditions and follow them!!!

That’s all from us, get creative and get LOUD!!!

Best of luck, you may now begin!!!

Hell-o all! No music coming today on the blog but i felt like taking the time to announce that Metalectro Vol.02 “Danger Zone” was at #26 in the Beatport Top 100 Electro House Releases chart yesterday. A very pleasant surprise as i was certain about the compilation’s and artist qulaity but didn’t know what to expect in terms of the Top 100 Electro House Releases chart. Setting a target now to make it to the Top 10 might be a bit too optimistic but let’s keep pushing and try to make it happen! Thank you all for your support, let’s give them hell!!!

In case you haven’t yet found out, it’s the second month in a row that Haezer is under our Spotlight page since he was once again the artist with the most views and traffic on Metalectro throughout the last month. And as you know by now i guess, this means every Haezer related information, event, news, etc that are worth mentioning will be mentioned here and of course on his Spotlight Page. Not too long ago the tourdates for Haezer‘s European tour were announced and in case you missed them, here they are! There might be a few empty dates but i’ll keep checking and try to post any new dates as soon as they are announced. In case i can’t keep up though, you can check on his facebook page for yourselves… So here we go and those of you who are near in one of those cities mentioned on this list, you better be checking Haezer out live, you know it’s going to be a monster show! Another thing that’s really worth mentioning is that if you pay close attention to these dates, you’ll see a show in London, UK, something which is really nice to see at last since i haven’t seen or heard many shows in London related to this music scene. A sign of things to come in the near future? Let’s wait and see!

Well, i have been going through all the tracks submitted in the Metalectro Vol.02 Cpmpetition Soundcloud Group over the last couple of days, trying to pick my 15 favorite tracks that will be my final picks to amke it into the Metalectro VOl.02 Compilation and i have to admit this is being a very pleasant headache! I have managed to narrow it down to around 25 tracks until now but it really seems very hard to drop 15 tracks out of these 25! So i had a little chat with Jet Set Trash and we decided to actually have 20 tracks in the final relee instead of 10! Way too many great tracks and great ideas so it feels like the right thing to do. Of course, this means that there will not be a voting process, as there is no need to to pick the 10 most popular tracks out the 15 the judges will pick anymore… So, all the 15 tracks picked by all 4 judges will all be included in the final compilation and Metralectro, meaning me, with Jet Set Trash select the 5 extra tracks to be in Metlaectro Vol02! A change of plan indeed but a good one imo that will unleash even more good tracks onto the world, so i hope that doesn’t sound bad or unfair to you either… Thank you all and have a nice evening!

Over the last month Metalectro in collaboration with Haezer, Le Castle Vania and Jet Set Trash have been running an original track competition for the Metalectro Vol.02 Compilation. All digital hell has broken loose with about 50 track submissions, making use of the guitar loops provided in every possible way you can think of! It already sounds like the Metalectro Vol.02 compilation is going to unleash some original neck-breaking and ground-shaking tracks upon the world!

As we are entering the second phase of the competition, each judge will pick his Top 15 tracks and the lists will be posted here in about a couple of weeks from today. Once the lists have been posted, a voting process will take place for a week and the 10 most popular tracks (most votes) will be released on the Metalectro Vol.02 compilation.

Besides getting their tracks released on Metalectro Vol.02 though, there are a few more prizes to be given away to the winners as they will also be considered for a release on Jet Set Trash in 2012, will be interviewed and featured on Metalectro, receive an original CD of Metalectro Vol.01 “Electrohead’s Nightmare”, plus an extra special gift (tba).

Thank you all for the track submissions, we’ll be checking out all tracks again and again in the next couple of weeks as there is a great deal of creativity and a few different ideas from disorted guitar fueled disco to killer thrash to pick from! So, stay tuned for the results and of course feel free to check out the submissions and let the judges know what you think!

 

PS. The number of tracks to be included in the release may change according to the number of entries

Oct 272011
 

Due to public demand and a pretty one sided voting process (38 YES – 0 NO) the deadline for the track submissions for the Metalectro vol.02 Original Track Competition the Metalectro blog is running in collaboration with Jet Set Trash, Haezer and Le Castle Vania will be moved one week later! So, instead of the 30th of October (this Sunday) which was the intitial deadline you can now submit your track until next Sunday the 6th of November! For more information and the rules, prizes, download link to the guitar loops provided for this competition and everything else, please check out the competition Soundcloud Group! Please make sure you check the riules before submitting your track(s)! Also, look out for more big things coming on Metalectro on that same date (6th Of November as it’s Metalectro’s first birthday so some gifts should be coming your way)! In the meanwhile, check out the track submissions we already had for the Metalectro vol.02 Original Track Competition, let us know know what you think and keep spreading the word!!!
