The finalists have been announced - see http://www.mydjspace.com/Finalists.html to check their pages and listen to their mixes.

East coast centric again this year - we're going to have to get our South and West based brothers and sisters to get their acts into gear!

well skipping through Syme Tollens - 7:56, 13:00, 48:20, 54:50 you can hear the double kick - at one point it got pretty bad that I think he just cut one of the tracks to hide it.

Thanks mate, I'll check it out. Hadn't had a listen to his yet. No great surprise to see Riverside in at least one mix!

I've only listened to Andy Rodriguez and Ravine, but I must say they're good, especially Andy Rodrigues (though some of his tracklists are questionable IMO). I really like this type of mix where there's alot of drop ins/samples which makes the track flow always unpredictable in a good way. And best of all it's short, I always favor short mix compared to long ones-usually listening to a single mix for hours without dividing your attention will get me bored.

You know it's down to the judges decision now, right? Not a public vote?

Some of the artists have included their own re-edits of songs and originals which looks pretty good.

Yeah like i said later down in the thread "but then again a lot of the other dj's have talent" i have just liked ravines mixes since i was young and 'USED' to like hard style. I enjoyed Apeks mix i must admit.

Yeah agree on the comment re the short mixes but you need to be fair -I've given the majority of them a good listen and there's some decent examples of non-commercial track selection, set progression, tech skill etc. So what I'm sayin is...give em a bit of support yo. And as with most comps the entries will be put together with thought of what the judges may be looking to hear.

The tracklists are all the same, i dont mind commerical stuff (I love all music) but i don't see why 90% of the mixes should all have bloody riverside and dave guetta in them. What a joke, get some diversity in there. If its someone who cant beatmatch + plays riverside send them back to the bedroom

actually my tits aren't that big..lol..as for riverside...yes a very *commercial* track and I need to be shot for including it, however at times you need to add a bit of cheese to attract the general public to vote. I worked very very hard to acquire votes, so unless you've done a comp like this before, you're yet to understand the stress and time involved in making it as a finalist.

At the end of the day you'll never please everyone with the style of music you play, however I believe in what I do and I've worked hard to achieve and be the best I can be, it wasn't an overnight triumph...so please don't be haters, just enjoy your passions, follow your dreams and be happy for those who give it a go.

p.s. IMO riverside in your demo makes you look amature... so many other decent tracks out there that get mainstream crowds moving that havent been disgustingly overplayed...

EDIT: Its just an opinion... Congratulations on your placing

It's all good i supose, but personaly i don't get why people enter these comps, i've judged tonnes of comps and entered a bunch of turntablist comps when i was a kid but these comps are just creepy to me and i would think they could break a good reputation but hey what do i know, i'm just an old fart!!!
