Learn. Create. Compete.

Compo is a slang word for "composition competition" commonly used by the arrangement community. It is derrived from the demoscene competitions by the same name.

Contrary to this, compos are less of a competition and more of an excerise in composition abilites. Each compo has it's own unique format and guidelines and while some are as short as 1 hour, others can last anywhere from a month, to a few months.

It's important to remember that the primary purpose of compos are to hone your skills and abilites by working within, sometimes very constricting, guidelines. These techiniques have proven essential to the growth of countless musicians.

Remember: the only way to lose a compo, is to not participate.

SLW-Tropical Coast Zone Act 1 (MnP104)  Active Meat and Potatoes VGM Remix Competition
5 days, 20 hours ago

Yoooo....(You can tell how stoked i am in winning my first real MnP...)

Since the last MnP, i got major summer vibes. So let's continue the summery tradition with some seriously underrated Sonic music. (Sonic seems to be getting some love lately lol). The game is Sonic Lost World, and the track name is Tropical Coast Act 1. Self Explanatory, plays in the stage (Other stages however, have real composition names. This one oddly doesn't. Oh well)

Think of Bob Marley Meets Goldie. (Look both of them up)

Let's hope ya gimme de Jamaican vibes mon. (Yeah i might have ruined that joke...) Ehem...Good luck to you all!

After uploading, please check if your song plays and can be downloaded and played without problems.
Only upload MP3 Files.

It is not necessary to use ThaSauce. You can upload the song anywhere you want, but I must have a download link. So if you use SoundCloud, don't forget to allow downloads, otherwise your song does not count as an entry or bonus mix. I will still use ThaSauce as a possible place to submit songs and upload all the songs to the ThaSauce page to have the songs at one central place.

If ThaSauce is down, please also submit the song somewhere else with a download link and post the link in the Ocremix Thread.
