Excited to see this coming back to Australia.

And very interested to see how the World Bar hosts it, as I must admit I'm kind of surprised at the choice of venue - There is no stage. How will they fit 2 sets of decks? Hopefully the crew behind the event will do it justice.

I'll be there

More interestingly, how smooth will changeovers be if everyone is going to use their own digital system/laptop?

Mind you, at least this is a step up from the home video competition of recent past.

I saw the USA east Coast eliminations in New York last year, and it was interesting to how the digital DJ's fared. The changeovers were messy and lengthy.

One poor girl/entrant couldn't understand why she got no signal from her laptop. A few very long awkward minutes later and the sound tech realised the entire back of the mixer was unplugged of every cable.

Other DJ's couldn't get calibration on one set up, and opted to use the second set of decks - It was real messy, and a lot of wasted time in change overs.

The winner of the day was DJ Prescision (X-ecutioners crew), who happened to be the only DJ in the entire event to use real vinyl (His skills were also light years ahead of every other contestant).

any more info on the night? I see Dexters name on the flyer. Anyone else showcasing? Who is hosting? Who are the judges?
Can you post a bigger version of the flyer please? Genuinely interested.
Maybe I should enter for fun and only play 45's..

* boo.. just realised this is the same night as the Globe reunion (or is this going to be a daytime event?)

At last a July gig and not another one being slotted into a rather crammed June - would be cool to check out I think.

it used to be a standard setup - vinyl only, technics mixer. I guess they'll have to have a longer segue between djs this time. will be interesting to see how it goes.
