I'd say give us what you've got. It'll be fun. I'm not sure how well my contribution will fit, but I submitted. My compositions always have a tendency to stray from what I originally intended. Outside of mainstream disco classics, I'm not too familiar with disco, so my song may have deviated as well. I think the fun thing about this competition is that disco is probably NOT what most of us normally write. Can't wait to see what everyone submits.

I think you actually nailed the vintage disco vibe quite well with your track. Mine is definitely more italo disco/HI NRG/borderline synth pop, but again, this was why I made the rules so loose. The whole idea is to have fun and step outside your normal style and see what comes of it. I think for the next comp we should so a #Selfie cover competition, haha.

Y'know, it just occurred to me how little thought was put into the current contest. Looks like you just took the last one and added a couple of letters.

DCO ---> DisCO :lol:

Lame, I know. Sorry. :roll: :P

So how is everybody looking? Only had 4 people ask for the login info so far. If people need another couple days that fine but please post so I know.

I should have mine done by the end of the day, got drunk in a park yesterday instead of finishing it, lol.

If there was another a couple of days I probably can put sth together - unfortunately didn't managed for today, as I got sidetracked into redesigning schematics and PCBs again ;-).

I can probably get mine together by tomorrow.
I was almost done, but I screwed up the arrangement with a selection error that I didn't catch until I had made a dozen edits.
So now I have to go back to the safety copy and try and fix the part I goofed up.
It would be an easy fix, but the part that I botched was kind of an odd syncopation, so it isn't an obvious 'just move the clip to the downbeat' kind of thing.
Oh yeah, wish I had a Streichfett for this.

Just uploaded my tune. It's something I started last year and never finished because it started sounding like a disco song :lol: . Dusted it off, touched it up and I think it sounds ok. Not exactly synth driven like the other two but I think it has a disco vibe nonetheless. Hope to see some more submissions!

I could have mine in by Monday night if you guys don't mind waiting that long. I work long days on the weekends and the last thing I wanna do when I get home is record. I was hoping more people would submit songs for this and maybe that extra day or two could make it happen.

No problem. Take an extra couple days if you need it.

Mine's done, although I want to give it one more listen before I submit it. Did the whole thing Thursday, Friday and Saturday since there was no construction going on next to the synth room. Went for an italo disco meets silver convention vibe. Also, I played the Djembe on it. Can't wait to hear what people came up with!

Hey Infinity...

I got the password in your PM. However...there was no SC page to use it on. I tried your page; it didn't work. So I sent my sub to the gmail address in the PM with only a minute to spare! Yeah...there wasn't a lot of time to hit the keys this week.

I got it done even though I broke the ring finger on my left hand last Sunday :o Lemmetellya...playing with a splint sucks.

Please let me know if you received the mp3. It's not very good (can't honestly blame the splint for that)...but its all mine :mrgreen:

Weird that it wouldn't let you login. I got your track and have uploaded it to the soundcloud page. My track will be done this evening, was far too nice out to be inside this weekend.

Ha...I see what happend ! You didn't send me the link to the SC page :o So I instead followed the link to your SC page, and tried the password there :lol:

When I didn't see my entry on your SC just now, I ran a search and found the correct page. My track was there along with all the others 8-) Thanks for uploading it.

Anyhoo...I hope it's "Disco" enough for the contest...
