I hardly expected everyone to finish. I'm actually kind of suprised as many paople got as far as they did. A lot of people got solid WIPs and just haven't finished yet, which is nice. There was a bit of an outcry for an extension, but really I see little point to that. The idea of the challenge was to be a challenge, and I didn't want to make the work of the people that finished in the month any less valid for actually meeting that challenge.

I think it's really awesome that a lot of people are up to the idea of working on their mixes past the deadline, and I'm really glad that the competition was able to give them a solid foundation to build on. I'm open to some sort of Freshly Baked remixer Follow-Up if people deem it nessacary to make sure they actually FINISH, but only if that's the case =P

Yup, you have to have at least 1000 posts and no bans before anyone takes you seriously. Doesn't matter what you've done or how funny, smart and charming you may be.

I'm not familiar with the source tune. As you mentioned in your submission, it is repetitive. Even at its most complex there's really not a whole lot going on. So you've got a good sketch. You also transition very abruptly between a lot of things (the apeggiation, the bass humming, the different drumbeats). It's probably better to stick with one of those and really draw it out. Most of the mixes here really take one or two ideas and squeeze them til everything has been sapped. So focus this and tighten it up. You'll be an OCRemixer yet.

That's not necessarily true. I've got more than 1000 and no bans... and look how well that's doing for me. :P
