Holiday Funk & Blues Remix Event

And when those blue snowflakes start falling, that’s when those blue memories start calling. ~Jay W. Johnson/Billy Hayes

The holiday blues can be serious, sad, and downright lonely. They can be contemplative, introspective, and deep. They can also be a source of connection, inspiration, and expression.

In all cases, the holiday blues go best with music. That’s why, this year, we’re not going all jolly and holly, sugar cookies and candy canes. We’re going down in it where it’s real — with some gritty funk and blues.

Admiral Bob, one of ccMixter’s most talented and beloved musicians, is kicking this jam off with some tasty stems that cry holiday blues. It is certain his artistry will help us all channel our holiday funk into melodies and rhythms.

You may gather ‘round the tree, the menorah, the yule log. You may be far away in a distant land. You may be working the night shift as Santa delivers his gifts. You may be in Times Square for the start of the New Year. Just know wherever you are on this pale-blue-dot, this season ccMixter is giving the creative gift of Holiday Funk & Blues.

So here’s a toast to you and to everyone everywhere — especially to all on the island of misfit toys. There is a place for us all in the music we create here at ccMixter.

Dates and Details:
Focus on pells & samples: Nov 26 - Dec 12
Focus on Remixes: Dec 13 - Jan 2

As always, any creative contribution is welcome throughout the entire event.

We’d be so grateful for a little extra present this time of year for ccMixter - donate here.

Here’s to creating Funk & Blues this holiday season!

This is gonna be fun! Here’s a great pack I found on Freesound awhile back that might come in handy (it’s a collection of 1-shot sleigh-bells and hand-bells)

Right on, that is sweet, and ccZero too, excellent resource!
Thanks, Story of the Lie

Hey, I’m noticing this morning that the three links; PELLS, SAMPLES and REMIXES, all lead to the general new uploads page. (Which I don’t think was the case a few days ago.)

At the moment, Beta appears to be undergoing maintenance.
I think the redirect is temporary, though it is preferable.

everything should be fixed now!
