Welcome Flash Beat Contest Contestants and Fans!! This week has been really hectic at p5audio. We did not expect 65 entries in this 3 day contest, but we were glad for each and every one of you who entered! But, judging 65 high quality beats in 4 days is not as easy as it sounds… Be warned, we might take two weeks to judge future flash beat contests lol. This contest was pretty straight forward: Using sounds from the West Coast G Funk FREE Loop Set provided, plus any other sounds you would like to add, make a beat of any style. We had 65 beats to choose from and many of them were extremely HOT! It was as always a hard choice. We had some debate… HP and LP almost did battle. There were some heated words and tense moments but we finally reached a consensus… and now we all friends again…read on!
WE PICKED TWO WINNERS….
Here they are… (in no particular order)
V Strong… !
Winning Track name: Bouncing n the Wild Wild West
Why we chose this track
- The lead melody is insane. It is authentically west coast, but 100% original!
- Great mix, and good drum programming. Good overall elements.
- The chopped background keys create an excellent groove for the track.
Congrats V Strong!
AND THE OTHER WINNER IS!!!…
Sentury Status… ! Second time winning a P5 Beat Contest…. first time anyone has won two!
Winning Track name:Two sides of West
Why we chose this track
- Great classic west coast style track. Extremely musical, great harmony, melody, bassline and drum programming.

To everybody that entered this contest! It was so great to see what your talents can make with our products. It is an honor to listen to your beats.
