Swoppers – it’s your last chance to post your blind reviews. Convinced that bleeptronica track must be Elton John’s alter-ego? It’s oooh the missing link between Whitesnake and The White Stripes – yes must be White Lines. Get posting as @kid-dynamite is going to drop all the track listings at the end of the month. Those where all reviews are in he’s been doing as we go, but the gate comes down on 31 Aug! Been fun eh.
Here’s a gentle reminder that the deadline for posting your CDs is fast approaching. So if you have been umming and ahhing between Start or Start Me Up then make your mind up and get burning!
What happens next? We’ll post a series of blog posts – one per group next week with you tagged in them. Then it’s over to the three/four of you to post your blind reviews and exchange pleasantries. End of August we’ll post the tracklistings to the same group posts and you can go dohh or get in!
A quick reminder your CD is a single CD, standard audio rip, 12 tracks without titles and artists. Theme of Beginnings. We have had a discussion on a previous blog post about how to anonymise your tracks, mp3tag appears to do a stand-up job on this, including artwork.
Any questions here or to me or @kid-dynamite.
Ok it looks like from various postings that the swaps are starting. Please do send yours out by the end of July, to give everyone plenty of time to listen to your mastermix and formulate their thoughts before the listings go up at the end of August.
The admins are working on a sensible way to group all the tracklistings.
Please DM us your tracklistings – I have one already. By all means add a few comments either per track or about the CD as a whole, but remember to keep it relatively brief for the OP. You can expand in the comments to your hearts desire.
Finally a request: I have a fairly standard windows 10 machine, with itunes and Mediaplayer. Can someone post an easy guide to making your mp3’s anonymous (ie with no info) bar Track 1, Artist 1. I have a lot from emusic and though I rename the file and can drag it into Windows mediaplayer the cover art that will not disappear. Would it reappear if someone listened to the CD through itunes?
