UAF/DOA competition

I entered a competition last month to win an all expenses paid set at the Urban Artforms Festival in Austria to be held this May. 100 DJ's were nominated to participate and the results were announced today.

We had to submit an 8-10 minute drum and bass mix and the competition organisers chose the winner which was DJ Insular. I thought I'd let you have a listen both to my entry and the winning entry so you can make your own mind up. My view is that I did not expect to win but hoped that the winner's mix would be seamless, full of energy and leave me wanting to hear more. While it has some good tunes in and is quite smooth for a vinyl mix I'd hoped the mixing in it would inspire me but it didn't really.

Anyway, I'm sure the judges know what they were doing and chose their favourite. Congratulations to Insular and readers please let me know what you think to both mini/mega mixes. I always value your feedback!

  1. Prefer your mix to be honest, mixes are slicker and the tune selection is way better! How about an hour long version?!

  2. Your mix is technically better (no audible pitch-bending unlike the other mix). Although I think the tracks he played were more varied than what you selected. Either way, you're an awesome DJ and I'll continue to subscribe to your podcast.
