The Winners Have Been Chosen
The jury listened to, analyzed and compared more than 1250 contest entries (anonymously, of course) until it was finally settled who would win this year’s prizes for the best mix and the best remix of the contest song “Christmas Blind”.
Terms and Conditions
Participation in the HOFA XMAS MIX CONTEST is free of charge. All you need is a DAW and fun mixing and remixing.
You are allowed to master, reamp, trigger the drums, copy & paste and pitch or even remove individual elements. For the sake of fairness it’s not allowed to add new tracks or to change tempo, pitch or structure of the song.
The jury is looking for harmonious sound characteristics with balanced levels that fits in the genre, a well-defined spatial depth and a natural overall sound.
Your options for the remix are endless: use those tracks of the download you want and add whatever you like. Nothing’s forbidden – but of course the song should still be recognisable and “radio-compatible” :) Let your creativity run wild!
When rating the remix, the jury pays attention to sound quality, sound design, arrangement and balanced proportions.
