No, prizes can not be passed on outside of the Winners Podium. I did exceptions ever so often - but there are rules, and we can't bend them all the time. Even though this was a "tied vote".

Technically, we're also not doing a "please select first, then I see what's left" (reverse order). But if TrojakEW is cool with JILLIAM's selection (as in - please sort this out either on the forum or via PM), then we can go with the usual route (PM me with your full name and email address). Ultimately you decide if you want to pick up anything or not.

Well done, y'all!
Hope to see some of you again next month; I know the theme may not be everyone's favorite but The Prodigy is really growing on me the more I listen.
Doesn't necessarily have to be something "The Prodigy" would have made. Just something that would make these pioneers of the Big Beat genre proud. (also see Chemical Brothers, The Crystal Method, Junkie XL, etc). Please check the premise again

I know, but I've been mostly listening to The Prodigy, and it's some really neat music. "Light Up the Sky" really caught me. I'm experienceing the genre mostly through them; it's quite exciting, if drenched in testosterone.

I’d like to formally apologize for my absence during the voting process and I humbly accept my disqualification. I am a coast to coast truck driver and do not always have time or access to the internet, I was also unaware that the votes had to come from we the contestants, I’ll remember that next time. I feel just awful that my participation lacked an online presence as I am very new to this forum and extremely green to creating electronic music period.. however, having a chance to read the various reactions to my track “NDE” I was thrilled to hear such fair and astute reviews, I found the constructive criticisms very agreeable and will carry them with me to my next project. I thank you from the bottom of my heart, all those who took the time to listen to my submission, and plan to do the same in return for next round. Although it’s too late, I would still like to go back and listen to the other submissions, and personally offer my praise to each contestant as I’m sure there is an insane amount of talent among you!

ANTHEMIC brother, there is nothing to apologize about! We can totally understand. To be very honest with you, you had one of the highest quality production this round in my opinion. It's just that the alignment to the theme kind of faltered for me. But you have amazing talent and aesthetics and I'm sure you'd be making such great music in the future. Looking forward to it! :hug: I honestly really enjoyed your track and if it was a theme-less competition, you'd be in my top 3 :smile:

Thank you for the kind words my friend! I too look forward to the next round, although it’s true I do tend to slip off theme, it’s tough to maintain a simple standard like theme when I hear something that’s too good to shelf. I’ll try to restrain myself next time around LOL, also maybe I don’t quite understand this genre of music as well as I thought I did, about 90% of my influences come from the mau5trap label. I could use some suggestions like artists to check out or sub-genres to sample...

ok than, thanks Trojak for lettin me to pick first - i'd go with MODO BASS

Did you two figure out how this should go? Are you okay with the selection, TrojakEW?


IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR EVERY PARTICIPANT:
It pains me to see another license sponsor go, but this month is the last time (for the time being) that Bjulin Waves/audile donates sound packs. Bjulin Waves/audile has stayed with us from June 2016 until April 2019. I can't thank him enough for his generosity.

If you're interested in one of his "Inspire Me" sound sets, please mention than into your PM's

Almost true. I got small accident I'm quite beat up. Can't properly walk, right leg damaged and even writing and using mouse is not painless (right hand palm). Standing up and going to my PC in my small room takes me 5 minutes. Hope treatment will go smooth so I can train again soon :grin: .

So sorry for delay It. I'm completely ok with J I L L I A M choice. So if I can I want to try Luftrum Lunaris. I'm heavy kontakt user so lets see how it sounds.
