    This is my submission for Ableton Live's "Beat the Clock" competition. Participants were asked to create an entirely new song using samples and live packs provided by M83, Nosaj Thing, and Junior Boys. HERE'S THE CATCH- We were given 24 hours to create and complete the finalized track to be submitted. Every synth, pad, effect, etc.. you will hear in this song (excluding some percussion) I created using the sample packs provided by the artists employing Ableton's "Simpler" modeling effect. I had limited time (roughly seven hours) to complete and submit my final product, ergo, "seven hours." 1st prize winner receives a trip for two to Berlin to tour the Ableton and Soundcloud headquarters. Your votes are very much appreciated!- Here is the link to submit your vote if you like the track-

      I know how ridiculous this has become with the spamming to get people to listen and vote. If I had the time, I would personalize a comment for each entry. But I don't…. I did manage to get through most of the entries and I placed votes for tracks that I enjoyed. There was a ton of great talent out there and many who made me cringe in pain!! I doubt if I have the time to spam enough to receive the votes needed to get into the top 25, but regardless, maybe there is something else good that can come out of this. There were so many talented musicians out there that I would love to connect with. I launched a small indie digital label a few months ago, and so far have only released my music. I'm looking for new talent to connect with. Something new. Unique. Not that same shit I hear over and over again as I browse the music download sites…. perhaps this is you. If you have a track that you want to share with me, I would love to listen. Original songs only please! Good luck to all of you on this contest! I know many of you are frustrated with the way the voting has turned out…. but whatever… /963
