HOPE for the Holidays Remix Event

Hope lies in dreams, in imagination, and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality. ~Jonas Salk

As the winter holidays approach, much of the world prepares for traditional celebrations. ccMixter has an annual winter tradition of its own: our holiday remix event.

As always, you are invited to share original and traditional, holiday and seasonal pells, samples, and remixes. With so much heart-wrenching turmoil and conflict all around us, we encourage a focus on HOPE for this year’s holiday event.

Our musical community of collaboration and sharing is built upon unity, harmony, inclusivity, and generosity… let’s create music that expresses our collective sentiments with the world!

Is it also possible to make samples from previous projects avaible for this event? I have one or two uploads from the by and by that would qualify for this event?

On another note. The links to the pells, samples and remixes all give me the same message:

(Edit they are working now)

Yes, we can tag your previous uploads if they seem relevant to the project. I’ll check yours out!

Strongly support this. At one upload a week, there’s not enough time to build up a big enough sample base.

Good point. We’ve lifted the upload throttle for this event, to encourage participation. It will be reinstated on Jan 2.

I clicked the wrong button and uploaded
I can’t add the holiday_hope tag myself. Would you please be so kind? Thanks!

it is working on my Mac. it may not be working for Android users because we had to close off some access to the site because we’ve been getting scraped and our bandwidth charges were times higher than normal last month.

Are you using Android by chance? What is your browser? OS? Does the old site work for you? It would be helpful for us to know….

We’ve got 20 remixes so far with 20 days left in 2016!!!

You haven’t submitted a sample, or a pell or a remix yet? Even the Grinch has a song to sing.

So make some hot chocolate…power up the mixer and microphones, and join in making Hope for the Holidays sparkle. It makes your heart grow three sizes bigger ;-)

Hope for the Holidays!!!!

We’ve just started our #12daysofchristmas twitter holiday music celebration with Keytronic’s “Under the Christmas Tree (withCiggyburns)” remix.

Hope for the Holidays is the continuation of a tradition of winter remixes here at ccMixter. Let’s share it with the world!

Check out and post your favorite tracks in the Pluggy Plugs forum topic I started for this promo event.

Share them on your twitter page using the #12daysofchristmas and #ccmusic and #ccmixter hashtags.
