T O P 3 W I N N E R S !
🥇 1st: “Merry” by Aikue
“…so, I go to College, and at College we had a competition to make a Christmas song, so I came up with some chords but it was on logic, so I went home and just worked on that track all night on Soundation.”
🥈 2nd: “Collapse” by ACAER
(Due to reasons I was not able to file a mini-interview with him) But I really loved the intro as well as the main lead, and also capturing that Christmas vibe! (:
🥉 3rd: “snow. VIP” by Shards
“I remember creating Snow after formulating a nice chord progression, and the lack of Christmas competition didn’t stop me from finishing the track then. I made snow vip mainly for one reason: the kick was too loud. Apart from that, I took the basic structure of snow and altered it, creating a more faster and powerful drop using fakies as well as a different drum beat.”
8th Place: “Snowdrift” (by ViciousV53)
A show-stopper infused with smooooth dreamy synths as well as some choppy house beats and awesome melodies that just screamed Christmas. So well done VV53.
7th Place: “Vibing with a snowman” (by rvmor & little hollow)
Such a beautiful little piece from soundation’s most beloved ambient producer and his pal rvmor – effortlessly combining little hollow’s signature ambient formula with some chilly lo-fi beats, as well as a great choice of chords, this song has Christmas written all over, good job fellas!
6th Place: “A forgotten land of Ice and Snow” (by Galaxian)
Something a little more unusual that just works so well! Recently known for his top 3 finalist remix of Jacknife Lee’s “Hit the Bell”, Galaxian comes back with another Drum n Bass hit with a subtle kick of Christmas vibe! Great Job!
5th Place: “Have yourself a Merry Christmas (Lofi Remix)” (by Hex)
Typically known for his melodic trap beats, Hex takes a different approach to this contest with a lo-fi spin with delicate chromatic percussions and a frick ton of sidechain! Awesome stuff Hex! <3
4th Place: “Carol of the Bells (Remix)” (by Moon & XWolf)
Awesome stuff guys, love all the sound effects and the fearsome drops, another unusual spin on a Christmas song!
Well done to all participants, and to the winners! :) Please message me via PM or Discord to secure your prizes! (:
