Grindhouse Takes A Beating From The Man...
Well, be that as it may, we shall forge ahead undaunted. I have to say that I'm really liking the examples in the previous thread. The nice thing about our genre is that, even with such strict guidelines, it still allows ample room for experimentation. I think it's time we started working on our "This Is Grindhouse" album, frankly.
I think that the album should be free, to foster interest in our genre; once we have it done, you can all go forth to the other forums you're involved with and spread the word, either sub rosa, or with malice aforethought. We'll host it on the Positron! site, of course, to give it the credence of an actual label.
So, if you want to be involved with the comp, make your Grindhouse track per the rules and examples, and upload it as a 44.1/16 WAV or AIFF, and send me a link where I can get at it, and we'll take it from there.
NOTE: If you're going to create your own sub-genre of Grindhouse for the purposes of the comp, make sure that your ruleset is a sub-set of what already exists. e.g.: a dub iteration of Grindhouse should be exactly half-time of a normal Grindhouse track, 70 bpm. An ambient or minimalist version should have elements at 140 bpm. All Grindhouse tracks should be able to be easily mixed with one another, in other words.
