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.

Jet Set Radio - Sneakman (PRC343) Active2 days, 7 hours ago
Source: Jet Set Radio - Sneakman (SEGA)
"Okay so the song I chose is a bit of a weird one. It's Sneakman from Jet Set Radio, since I've been playing a lot of that recently.
Since Jet Set Radio's music relies heavily on samples, I decided to add a link to the samples used as well as the MIDI.
Page of the guy who originally found the samples: http://monado-speed.tumblr.com/post/91083207619/hideki-naganuma-what-a-man-once-one-of-segas
Drive folder of the original track, MIDI, samples, and information on each sample: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6AGn7vXBP2JVF8yZFE5Nmd2WXM
Deadline is Wednesday March 8th 2017, 10:59 AM ThaSauce Time (16:00 UTC, 18:00 GMT).
Check the following site for the rules:
Check the Ocremix thread for more information (you can post questions there):
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.
The winner of this round may select the source for PRC345 which is not the round after this one, but the round after the next round.
