Hello people, it’s time for the review of April cover contest results !
The theme was “Villain Themes” and it was full of surprises.
Even if there was a bit less participants it was full of surprises like members making big collabs, people really trying new music style or some really original arrangements completely changing the mood from the original.
My last point was referring to the audio winner of this month, Orchestral Fantasy with his crazy salsa version of Kefka’s Theme from Final Fantasy VI.
At the 2nd and 3rd places we have the 2 leaders of the 2017 Pixel Mixers championship: Subversiveasset and PrjzCalavera.
About the video contest it’s a victory for Subversiveasset followed by PrjzCalavera and at the 3rd place we have a tie between the heavy SwigglesRP and the Epic Italian Team composed of Psamathes, Dacian Grada and Danilo Ciaffi.
PrjzCalavera keeps the lead at the 2017 audio championship, followed by Subversiveasset who took the 2nd place to Hashel (who didn’t enter this month). At the 4th place there is a tie between SwigglesRP and Dancian Grada, finally at the 5th place is this month’s winner: Orchestral Fantasy.
The May contest‘s theme is “Dance” so you can pick any VGM song you like as long as your arrangement make people want to dance =)

An other great contest month has gone by.
This time we had the chance to welcome some new members such as Piano PeyCa or Psamathes.
The theme was “Overworld” and it was the opportunity to have some creative rendition of some really classic tunes.
And for the first time we have a tie at the first place of the audio contest.
Subversiveasset and Piano PeyCa both share the highest step of the podium.
And as funny as it sounds they both were a guest on each-others video, which meant they weren’t allowed to vote for each-others, that makes their victory even more impressive !
And even more crazy there is also a tie for the video contest between PrjzCalavera (ft. Psamathes) and the new member Piano PeyCa.
Prjz used some incredibly beautiful landscape from his homeland Sardinia and Piano PeyCa used many different camera angles for a clean and really professional montage.
After this month, PrjzCalavera keeps the lead on the 2017 championship, he is followed by Hashel05 and Subversiveasset.

February was probably the best contest we EVER had, quality speaking.
Everybody’s work was so impressive and the songs amazing and really creative.
The theme was “90s games battles”.
SwigglesRP won the audio contest with a really heavy and headbanging cover from Doom. After his 2nd place of January, he has now his 1st victory of year!
PrjzCalavera won the video contest for the 2nd time in a row and did really well in audio too.
Those 2 guys are definitely the men to look at in early 2017 !
Also some amazing entries from new people like DS Music and Elrox, congrats to them and I hope to see you guys participating to next month 😀
