    Default First DJ competition.

    Hi,

    We have entered our first DJ competition by submitting a mix and then getting it shortlisted from 100 people down to 7 now! So we are in the final round

    We are the ONLY laptop based DJ's in the competition, all the others are using vinyl.

    Does anyone have any tips or advice for us? We have played quite a few times (biggest crowd 800 people), but how different will a DJ competiton be compared to playing a normal night?

    Is the next round of the competition run infront of a crowd, or is it purely mixtape based?

    What kind of competition is it?
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    Dj comps are usually based on these things:

    Scratching, Beat Juggling, Showmanship/Stage Presence, Composition, Creativity, Originality, Execution, Technicality and Musicality

    Default DJ comp

    1st stage was mixtape based, now it is purely crowd based.

    There should be quite a few people there on the night as Scratch Perverts are headlining later downstairs.
