Used to enter the competition years ago. Still listen in most months, though rarely comment.
Thinking of entering again this month. (Music is 95% written, need lyrics).
Noticed lots of people are using Soundcloud, just seen a post on hyperbot, about using Dropify to extend the download limit to over 100.
In two minds with this personally, like that over 100 can download, but since this is a competition, don't like the idea of having people like my facebook to get it. (though this is useful for non competition tunage).

I've never used Dropify, but it seems that by leaving it on Optional you won't be forcing anyone to 'like' you.hyperbot wrote:4. By activating Forced Like Gating (Optional vs. Forced Like Gating), people are required to Like the artist's Facebook Page in order to download the Drop.
Seems the only issue is that you can only download the Dropify file from the soundcloud widget (?), and I think it's encouraged to provide a direct download link for this contest.

This month you are asked to submit an entry in the genre of funk (as you understand it).
This Wikipedia article might be helpful, but it is not an official definition. I'll leave defining funk up to you and the voters.

Thanks for the review and vote. Y'know, the first half actually started as an improv over the second half, but I couldn't get it to sound convincing, so I pulled them apart....

Those are those things people filth up music with to keep idiots entertained, aren't they?
This ain't rap.
Nobody ever asks an oboist what the lyrics are.
Just look at it as a synth...one oscillator with some formant generation.
