Boozedrome 2018 - The Ultimate Gabber Compo of 2018

category: music [glöplog]
To compete, make a gabber tune with the following specs:

- 4 channel MOD, playable in Protracker v2.3D
- Maximum size: 350kB
- Maximum length: 3 minutes

Ten tunes will be presented and voted for at Boozembly on Saturday 4.8.2018. If we receive more than 10 tunes, we will hold a preselection. Maximum of two entries per artist.

The Top 10 tunes will be included on a special Boozedrome compilation cassette, with all top 10 artists receiving a hand-numbered premium edition. Regular editions will be handed out for free at Boozembly among voters, while supplies last. The tapes will also not be for sale, so better show up at Boozembly.

Tunes will be in mono both in compo and on the cassette.

Deadline for entries is July 15th 2018.

I'd love to record myself crying out loud, reduce the samplerate, and then layer some serious 240bpm kickz to that.

That would not give you gabber, sorry.

make it slower than 240 bpms :D Let's get in to a ridiculous fight over what gabber is, but imo it's the 175/190 bpm early 1990s protracker music made by dutch guys from rotterdam on amigas.

like this

@Okkie: To be fair, I do own one 240 BPM gabber track. Specifically this one from 1993.

Tempo-wise, from my brief research, modern Gabber is still in the 175-190 range. Definite evolution of the bass drum distortion though.

personally i don't think making carbon copies of early 90s stuff is the point of this whole shebang, although it's likely that whatever i make is going to be pretty much that :)
Sure, but well... its ProTracker :D

I started btw

First there was Thunderdome...around 150-170 bpm!
Then there was Terrordrome with about about 170-190bpm!
Once Gabber appeared it was like all above the 190 !
Just my 2 cents, but that´s how it felt while living through dutch highBPMTechno back then! ;)
And i love(d) all of it! :D

I´ll submit my 1-2 tunes, be assured of it! :)

HARDyCORE will never die!!!
