Cross-platform Competitions

Fast Forward Compo (party music)

As the name implies, we play tunes in this compo that you can dance to, no matter if it's demo music, house, dnb or any other musical style.

Slow Motion Compo (chill)

Here we play tunes you'd listen to when you are lying on your couch, listening to something you like in this situation. Chilling does not mean for us that you may not use beats or have to stick to 'air' style, though.
