And welcome to the “Get Your Remix Released On Vinyl On Kniteforce Records Competition” rules page blog post section thing! Catchy titles are my specialty you know. Anyway.

If you are on the mailing list, you will be sent links to the sample packs on Monday 1st of August. If you are reading this, and not on the mailing list, join now to get the samples. I will resend the links each Monday until the end of August. The mailing list can be joined by using the form at the top right hand corner of this page!

Okay, I’m going to give you a brief overview of the competition, and then a list of rules ?

I put NO RESTRICTIONS on what you do as an artist when remixing. But for this competition, its worth reading these guidelines…

I am restarting Kniteforce as a vinyl label. I am going to pretend that, other than better equipment and production, nothing much happened from 1997 onwards as far as music development is concerned. So the label will concentrate on the hardcore and jungle and d’n’b sound from 1991-1997. This is relevant to anyone entering the competition. I am looking for authentic sounding remixes. The rule of thumb is to ask yourself, “would this remix fit into a set of great tunes from that era?”

If the answer is yes, you are on the right track.

It is important to say that this doesn’t mean your remix has to be breakbeat – there were great tracks in various styles – 4×4, jungle, d’n’b, hardcore, heavy, dark, light, and combinations of everything. Thats why it was such a great era. As for BPM, 150 – 210 is about right lol. But if you want it to win and be on vinyl, a Trap breakdown or Dubstep remix isn’t going to do it lol.

Having said that, if you want to make a wicked modern remix, with Trap, Dubstep, Speedcore or whatever you feel like doing, thats fine too – If your remix is outside of what I am looking for to release on the vinyl, it can go on KFA perhaps as a digital release. We will see. But the bottom line is, to get on the vinyl, you need to be channelling your old skool.

Okay, on to the rules:
