CAPTAINS

What is the purpose of having a captain? Our panel of captains have been carefully selected based on their real world experience in the music industry i.e. music production, DJ-ing, etc. Contestants who have made it onto a team are encouraged to share their mix drafts with their respective team captains for feedback on how to possibly improve their mixes before submitting the final cut to MrsSpitFire for the Top 16 Battle Show. Captains will meet up with their team to discuss strategy and/or what theme (or no theme if that is your preferred route) to go with before contestants begin working on their mixes.

TEAM DRAFT SHOW

ENTRY AND SELECTION PROCESS

  1. The submission period will close at 4pm PST / 7pm EST on June 19, 2021 (Saturday). Refer to the ‘How to Enter’ section below for further instructions.
  2. All submissions will make it onto the draft show (organizers reserve the right to change this depending on the final number of submissions).
  3. There will be 4 captains on the show. Each captain will get to choose 4 contestants each from the pool of submissions to be on their team (16 contestants in total will make it into the Top 16 Battle Show).
  4. All mixes submitted by contestants will be treated on the draft show as a blind audition. Captains will not know who the mix belongs to.
  5. During the Draft Show, each captain is allowed to use the *Wild Card once to automatically put a contestant on his team. If two or more captains use their Wild Card on the same contestant, the power then shifts to the contestant (this is when the contestant who created the mix is revealed) to choose which captain they want to work with. If no captain uses their Wild Card, the contestant will be put into the waiting pool. The Wild Card is deemed as unused if the contestant does not end up on the captain’s team, which means the captain can continue using his Wild Card until he manages to get a chosen contestant onto his team.
  6. After all submission mixes have been played, the captains will take a short break and decide which of the mixes they heard (contestants that are currently in the waiting pool) that they want to have on their team. Contestant names will only be revealed to both captains and audience AFTER the captains have selected their chosen mixes. This will be done live at the end of the Draft Show.
  7. You can (and are encouraged) to post on social media if you have made it onto the Top 16. 

*Captains are not required to use their Wild Card.

HOW TO ENTER THE DRAFT SHOW

  1. Complete a 32-bar mix on Fuser and save it with the title “[your Fuser or Twitch username] – dtbdraft”. There are no required tracks for this mix and it can be any theme of your choosing. Mixes MUST be made on or after June 6.

2. Fill out the submission form accordingly. (https://forms.gle/jrnXe7aLR8RFCWYu6).
3. On the day of the Draft Show, Apleb4life will DM each contestant with a random word that has been specially assigned to them. This will be the on-screen name attached to their mix during the blind auditions. For example, if contestant A is assigned the word “button”, we will label and introduce contestant’s A mix as button. Please do not share this with any of the other contestants and captains (or share at your own risk).
4. These random words will be added to a random name picker/wheel which will be used to determine the order of when each mix will be played.
5. Remember, to continue as an eligible contestant, you will need to join the Discord server and be in the voice chat channel throughout the duration of the Draft Show. If you have issues with this, please DM Aphoticphoton or MrsSpitFire.




 

TOP 16 BATTLE SHOW

1. Each contestant will need to prepare the following mixes: 1×16-bar mix, 1×32-bar mix and 1×64-bar mix (the mix submitted for the Draft Show will not be used in the Top 16 Battle Show).
2. Export all your mixes from Fuser and save it into a Google Drive or Dropbox folder. Submit the link to MrsSpitFire on Discord by July 7 (Wednesday) 6pm PST / 9pm EST (if you have issues with exporting, please DM MrsSpitFire on this).

SHOW FORMAT

Round 1 (4 teams with 4 contestants each)

  • Your 16 bar mix will be played during Round 1 in order of teams.
  • Team 1 – after all 16 bar mixes have been played from Team 1, voting begins. Captains and contestants from Team 2, 3 and 4 will need to DM apleb4life with their votes (only 1 vote each). **Audience will vote via the Google Forms link that will be provided (more info on audience voting below). Voting period ends.
  • Team 2 – the 16 bar mixes from Team 2 will now be played. Once all mixes have been played, voting begins. Captains and contestants from Team 1, 3 and 4 will need to DM apleb4life with their votes (only 1 vote each). Audience will vote via the Google Forms link that will be provided. Voting period ends.
  • Team 3 – the 16 bar mixes from Team 3 will now be played. Once all mixes have been played, voting begins. Captains and contestants from Team 1, 2 and 4 will need to DM apleb4life with their votes (only 1 vote each). Audience will vote via the Google Forms link that will be provided. Voting period ends.
  • Team 4 – the 16 bar mixes from Team 4 will now be played. Once all mixes have been played, voting begins. Captains and contestants from Team 1, 2 and 3 will need to DM apleb4life with their votes (only 1 vote each). Audience will vote via the Google Forms link that will be provided. Voting period ends.
  • At the end of Round 1, the two (2) contestants with the least amount of votes from each team will be revealed and immediately eliminated from the show.
  • GAME CHANGER! Each captain will be able to use one (1) ***steal throughout the entire duration of the Top 16 Battle Show. Captains can only steal an eliminated contestant who isn’t currently on their team. If two or more captains use their steal on the same eliminated contestant, the power then shifts to the contestant to choose which captain’s team they want to join.
  • Note that if a captain has used his steal in Round 1, he will no longer be able to use it in the semi-finals. The steal is deemed as unused if the eliminated contestant does not end up on the captain’s team, which means the captain can continue using his steal until he manages to eventually steal a contestant.

**Audience will need a Google account to vote on Google Forms (link will be provided during the voting period). Audience votes will account for 20% of a contestant’s votes. E.g. if Contestant A receives 10 votes from the audience, 20% of 10 votes will be 2 points.

***Captains are not required to use their steal.
