If you rather listen in a playlist form, below is a playlist of the entries of this week's #smlchallenge.
WINNER ONE: @beatseb with an average of 4.70 from the judging panel with "Ancient Battleground" winning 18 STEEM and 42 Voiceshares for 60 points.
Let's gooooooooooooooo time for BATTLE.
Holy smokes what a pump-up for the soul with this one. Everything about this beat screams Ancient Spartan 300 battle scene.
You have the awesome brass coming in at 0:23 to declare the battle and then we are off on an epic energy filed ride with this one.
Love the choir vocals at 0:40 and at 1:21 they create such an epic vibe and ads that life or death element to this beat in my opinion
And then how you the tempo (at least perceived) is elevated at 0:56 and the you slow us down at 1:07 to allow us some breathing room and then BAM we are back on the batleground.
That artwork you created is so sweet as well o weee. I feel like I am elevated in a forest somehow. What detail in this one per usual. Much respect.
Thanks for all you do for the comunity and continuing to inspire us with your music and your actions.

WINNER TWO: @djlethalskillz with an average of 4.67 from the judging panel with "Ancient Civilizations" winning 9 STEEM and 36 Voiceshares for 45 points.
"@djlethalskillz : Middle East's Last Turntablist standing"
I can see why o weeeeeeee.
Those creation skills of yours shined with this one. The way you use the samples especially that "ahhh" sound throughout is so epic.
And that electric guitar at 3:18 holy smokesssss sounds so incredible and you use it to drive such emotion and then WHAM end it on such a high note you have to press repeat on this one.
The intro is so dope sets the mood (maybe a little long in my opinion with these ADHD listeners out there) and really shows your knolwedge of the theme.
And man that #smlchallenge Illuminati Pyramid GIF is absolutely incredible. One of the most creative GIFS I have seen and you made it for the community. You the man.
Appreciate all the time and energy you put into this energy you absolutely dominated this theme this week. Props to you buddy.

WINNER THREE: @scuzzy with an average of 4.51 from the judging panel with "Nikkal" winning 6 STEEM and 32 Voiceshares for 38 points.
Wowzers this is an incredible Anicent Civilization-inspired entry
The awesome history and knoweldge about the oldest known music, the Hurrian Hymn to Nikkal, you share with us is so epic and valuable. To use such an important piece of music history as inspiration for this week is extraordinary.
The way you incorporate the sample and the lyre is so seemless in my opinion and really drives home the message of your beat.
The incredible sound quality is evident and the way you structure and arrange this beat is flawless in my opinion. You use sounds and samples that fit the them completely and use them in a way that keeps us fully engaged throughout the beat.
Props to you buddy thanks again for your continue particpation and letting us hear your epic creations.

Holy raised vibrations o weeeee
You raise our vibrations with the knowledge you share about the Mu civilization and this absolutely incredible beat you created.
I absolutely love those Asian flutes you have throughout the beat and mix that with the bass line you use o weeeeee does greatness result.
It is so easy to get caught up in a calming state of mind when this is on repeat. Such a skill to create art like that in my opinion.
Thank you for all the time and effort you put into creating this masterpiece and sharing it with us to enjoy.

HONORABLE MENTION #2 (TIED): @verbal-d with "Wisdom of the Ancients Beat" with an average of 4.24 from the judging panel winning 15 Voiceshares for 15 points.
Wow wow give is that Ancient beat o weeeee
You combine so many epic sounds from the flute, that Santoor o weeeeeee, and those "ahhhhhh" vocals to create such an awesome Anicent Civilization inspired beat. The vibe is real with this one.
I absolutley love your use of the Santoor around 2:00 and how you integrate those voices (like at 1:11) is seemless in my opinion an dreally helps to reinforce the Ancient feel to this beat.
This beat raised my vibrations to such an awesome level and defintely is some music to put on to create a spirtual atmosphere.
Thanks for sharing this masterpiece with the community. Appreciate you.
