Monochrome Heaven's "Smooth Criminal" Trade-Off

Recommended Posts



From freaky clowns in sewers to murderers in hockey masks, fictional serial killers and October go together like pumpkins and pie. For our next trade-off, dedicate a mix tape to the theme of smooth criminal. How you interpret the theme is up to you. For some examples, you can:


  • create a playlist about the perfect crime
  • create a playlist Jack the Ripper would listen to
  • invent a criminal and detail his or her journey and motivations
  • create a mix that sounds like the mind of a killer
  • create a mix where every song references crime, murder, or passion
  • create a mix about criminal activity. Murder, crime, drugs, etc.


The theme could also be a little less pointed, focusing on themes such as insanity or blood lust or even one particular historical figure. Do whatever you want, as long as you can tie it back to the theme.





  • Send a list of songs to your partner; minimum is 10 songs, maximum is 70 minutes long.
  • At least three songs must consist of Japanese artists but any other language is fine for the rest! A song can only be used once and only one song per artist!
  • You must critique each song and give it a rating (?/5, or ?/10, whichever you prefer)
  • Critiques must be longer than one sentence (explain why you liked/disliked/don't care for about the song). Also, in your critique let us know if you feel or see anything in particular from one or more combination of tracks.
  • Participants who fail to submit a review by the deadline will not be allowed to participate in the next trade-off. Users who give notice ahead of time that they will be late may be exempt. Users who did not submit a review for the last trade-off are not allowed to participate in this one.




Partners will be revealed October 13th

Your mix must be sent by October 15th

Final reviews must be posted by October 22nd

Plot twist: ...it on sax with 60 minutes of smooth jazz.

If I mysteriously disappear you'll all know what really happened.
