  1. There Are No Brakes On This Feels Train! This time of year always seems to bring up a lot of emotions with the end of year looming not far ahead.

So this time gather up your best nostalgic, sentimental, makes-you-cry, lifts-you-up, brings-you-back tracks for this one! You can pick a single theme/mood for your trade or mix and match. Get as creative as you want and do what feels right, man. Sign ups are over! Partners will be revealed Wednesday the 14th. Mixes must be sent to your partner by Wednesday the 21st.

  4. Monochrome Heaven's "Best Of" Trade-Off! Greetings, Monochromians! Welcome to Monochrome Heaven's "Best Of" Trade-Off! This time around I have the pleasure of hosting this :). The theme is simple, but with a twist! Instead of choosing ten songs from ten different artists, choose ten songs from just one artist! Choose any Japanese artist that you love and create a "Best Of" or compilation mix, anything which you think shows that band at their best. Signups begin now. Partners will be revealed on Monday, April 18th. Lists must be sent by Thursday evening, April 21st and Reviews must be done by Saturday, April 30th.

  5. ♡ Monochrome Heaven's "Decade Of Love" Trade-Off! ♡ Greetings, Monochromians! Welcome to Monochrome Heaven's "Decade Of Love" Trade-Off! The theme is simple! Choose a decade (any span of 10 years), and pick one song from each respective year that YOU LOVE to put on on your mix. The songs do not have to be love songs, just songs that YOU love! You can choose ANY decade you'd like, be it 1970-1980 or 2005-2015 - whatever, it's up to you! Just choose a song that you love from each respective year, and make your mix! Easy enough? In example, your mix should end up looking something like this: (2000-2010) 01. track one (2000) 02. track two (2001) 03. track three (2002) 04. track four (2003) 05. track five (2004) 06. track six (2005) 07. track seven (2006) 08. track eight (2007) 09. track nine (2008) 10. track ten (2009) alternatively, feel free to shuffle the dates, as long as you cover each song in the decade that you choose. like so: (2000-2010) 01. track one (2001) 02. track two (2008) 03. track three (2006) 04. track four (2003) 05. track five (2004) 06. track six (2005) 07. track seven (2009) 08. track eight (2007) 09. track nine (2009) 10. track ten (2000) (please note that no song from 2010 was chosen because that year denotes the end of the selected decade and the beginning of another) Signups begin now.

  6. Now it's my turn for my favourite month! And no, it's not going to be Christmas themed. Instead, we're looking at the New Years.

  9. The theme for this trade-off is nostalgia. No, I’m not talking about our sysop who goes by that name. I’m talking about the feelings and memories that can evoke when listening to certain songs. In this trade-off, our mixtapes will be made up of these songs that bring back memories of past summers we’ve experienced. If you have trouble rounding up enough songs associated with your own summer memories, feel free to improvise. And they don't all have to be good memories you yearn for... even if the theme is called "nostalgia" ...
