ccMusic Award Nominees

permalink   Fri, Jan 4, 2019 @ 9:52 AM
Hello everyone! ccMixter is honored to be included in the CC Music Awards this year.

The CC Music Awards were organized by folks outside the ccMixter community, and 16 individuals are overseeing the process (again, outside our community).

ccMixter was invited to nominate tracks for subcategories in the “Remix” category. Our admins listened to hundreds of tracks uploaded between April 3 and December 31 to determine the nominations below.

Please note: admins were instructed to exclude themselves from any nomination.

8 judges within our community, and one outside, are now casting their votes for their favorite in each category. If a judge is nominated in a category (remixer or remixed), they do not vote in that category.

Judging wraps up January 31 and winners should be announced shortly thereafter on the CC Music Awards Website.

Congratulations to our Nominees!

I thought I was up-to-date with CC-related initiatives but OK, professing my ignorance here: did not know about CC Music Awards until this post.

Other than I managed to trace it back to this:

For fear of neglecting the equally deserving nominees, I’d have voted for Blue Wave Theory

Also, I think my name up there was a mistake… (yes, yes the Imposter Syndrome rears its head)

Definitely not a mistake you are nominated.

Great honor for all of us to be listed in this LIste.

Have never heard of it … for 2018 you can not vote unfortunately.
permalink   Snowflake Tue, Jan 15, 2019 @ 1:18 PM
The folks that organized these awards have had a few technical challenges due to our number of nominations (we later learned the max capacity is 6 per category) — and so voting on their site for our categories is not possible. Judges are voting using other means and winners should be announced the first weekend in February.

Very chuffed to be included as a nominee, but interested to know : who nominated, were these tracks nominated by ccmixter admins or by people outside of ccmixter ?
Best, Martin
If by our admins, many big thanks !

Hey Martin,

I’ve added more information to the forum post above, that I hope addresses your questions. Congrats on your nomination!

I am honored to have been mentioned in an international competition that has as its objective the free exchange of art. You all are really special. My small contribution to this fantastic community has given me great satisfaction and even emotions, of which I never feel completely grateful, and this I owe to your work full of love and altruism. Being mentioned on this list makes me so proud. You are fantastic artists with a great sense of altruism.

Congratulations, everyone! I’m so proud of all of the winners and nominees! Heck, I’m proud of our entire community. All of the raw talent and expansive creativity that is shared on ccMixter endlessly inspires and humbles me. Thank you.

Congrats to all the fine talent at CCmixter!!!

onlymeith imma let you finish, but Siobhan had one of the best experimental remixes of all time.

One of the best experimental remixes of ALL TIME
permalink   Loveshadow Fri, Feb 8, 2019 @ 12:23 PM
Wow…Honoured to be a nominee and a winner in these awards. I hope like me that more people go and listen to as many of the nominated tracks they can to appreciate the massive Talent that is present right across this site and the standard of work that is done by so many remixers.

For every winning track here there is the contribution of the samples to create it.

Awards only ever take the temperature of a set of given criteria at any one given specific time and so trufully anyone of the great mixers nominated here could be chosen. Thanks again from myself and Apoxode and congrats go to anyone contributing to CC mixter in and out of awards like this. Keep on making music,sharing and remixing in 2019.

I was honoured to be nominated, and am most impressed by the work of the winning slate. No surprise to see Javolenus win a stems award, I’m blown away by how much work he can produce, with all of it being of great quality. And the clarity of tone and loveliness of onlymeith’s work I always love… your work always drips with emotion, which I really appreciate as a listener.

Panu blew me away, and a special shout out to the curation team for Amplifiers, which wasn’t just a collection of stuff, but a real attempt to herd the ccMixter cats into a coherent concept album!

We can all be proud to have done this.
I am very happy to be a part of this community and to have contributed! ;)

Nominated for CC track of the year 2018, is actually better than winning the Grammy for the same, in my mind. As a Grammy is hardly won without money up in advance, whereas a CC award is nominated for nothing but your music alone.

So, thanks a lot
