Digusting ITM Competition - Your Shot DJ Comp
http://www.inthemix.com.au/competiti...istration_page

noticed this in the competitions section

basically

the way im reading it is.

theyre saying 'anybody can be a dj'
you dont need talent, you just need to play good tunes.

what it is, is they get 72 contestants, teach them how to mix, give them a gig @ greenwood at a special event, then the winner (whoever plays the most popular music) gets a gig @ fmf, an interstate gig,a dj package, a dj set on a MOS download compilation, guest mix on MOS radio, greenwood residency, itm will promote the shit out of you and a years worth of red bull to add to it.

i just find this disgusting to all those people that have taught themselves to dj, and have worked hard at it, have talent and struggle to get gigs because its a tough scene and they need to get out there more.

not just me (i dont avidly look for gigs anyway) but there is loads of them.

and then a competition like this comes around and makes it look like "anybody can be a dj" and that you dont need talent to do it.


its spitting in the face of a profession and absolutely disgusting of itm.

Agreed.
When I saw the comp initially I was thinking pretty much most of what you already mentioned.
That said...doubt I'll be entering it

this isn't DJing. it's basically taking some n00b tryhard, putting them up on stage and then laughing in the face of all the other people out there who actually put some serious effort into their trade and try to make a name for themselves..

man, the mainstream scene sucks so much dicks

yeah it's hilarious and retarded but it's all just about sponsorship (dj warehouse getting their name out there) and yes it's mainstream.

don't get cut up... just laugh.

seriously it's not worth it.

obvious from the outset it's the same old shit more about the business/promotion side of things. QUALITY music more often than not takes the back seat in any DJ comp. (australian dance music culture is way behind europe therefore mainstream winzzzz)

peace

DJ Idol that's what it is.

Seriously DJ culture is so watered down and bastardized. It's like what happened to breaking in the 80s.

i'd rather see a set of a dj playing really good tunes and not mixing them particularly well, than see a dj play a ridiculously well mixed set, and really boring tunes.

Okay, at the risk of getting slammed for my input here, I'm going to tell you about my experience with (the first) Your Shot competition.

Slag me off, if you will, but hear me out, by all means!

At first, I was very skeptical about entering this competition. I had an opinion similar to the above comments in this thread. Honestly.

As you all well know, there are a lot of dodgy, wanky DJ comps around the place, and at first, I believed this would be no exception.

When advised of the "interview day" details at the Greenwood, I was in two minds whether to attend. Being 24, and a club and (internet) radio DJ already for a few years, I didn't think I'd fit the mold, nor did I think I would be the type that the competition organisers were looking for.

Regardless, I attended the interview day, following a bit of a push from a friend of mine. I went along for a laugh, more than anything else.

Following the interview day, within a couple of short weeks, I was delivered the exciting news that I was accepted into the final 30. I was shocked, and somewhat flattered, and pretty excited.

The six (or so) weeks, leading up to the "big day", were great. It was an excellent opportunity to meet a lot of cool, like-minded people, in the fellow competitors, alongside the DJWarehouse crew, and of course, Steve and Marc, the organisers.

There wasn't a hint of animosity between the competitors, either, as much as I thought there might be. Everyone was equally, genuinely excited to see the success of one another on the final day.

I had an incredible day on that Sunday in July and I was very happy to be placed 4th, in the competition.

Most of the competitors are now enjoying regular DJ bookings across the Sydney scene, and I believe that in this new competition, there will be even more opportunities.

The beauty of this competition is that it places everybody on equal playing ground, and the classes at DJWarehouse are very much tailored to your requirements. DJWarehouse also offered huge hire discounts, which allowed competitors to hire CDJs and a mixer for the entire duration of the training, and competition lead up.

I can honestly say that it was one of the most positive experiences of my life, and I'd recommend anyone, regardless of experience or background, to give it a shot!

For those wondering, I am definitely not on the Smirnoff pay roll!

I'd honestly suggest giving it a shot.

What constitutes as good tunes though.

In most comps club bangers are considered unfortunately.

Hence why there is an impression to be a good DJ beat matching flawlessly.

I'm actually not sure exactly, mate.

I did see the winner's set though, and given a few factors, including his overwhelming crowd response, I knew he would do well. (And I'm not taking anything away from his ability either, he played the right tunes, and mixed well enough.)

I have no doubt that crowd response came into the equation however; the point that was made very clear by the Greenwood licensee, Marc, was that regardless of how many people you brought, if your mixing wasn't up to scratch, you wouldn't be winning the competition.

Again, if you have nothing to do on the interview day, apply, be yourself, and go for it! You just never know!

I'm just curious, from your perspective... what was your "HONEST" opinion about some of the other contestants that had not DJ'd before? eg mixing: was it just basic last 30 secs of track... beatmatch into first 30 secs of new track, song choice ect ect.

I'm really keen to know how people did learning in such a short time frame from having no previous experience.

Well, I think having access to decks for the period of six weeks (due to the DJWarehouse offer), would have helped a lot. There isn't any doubt. I'm sure you all remember those first few weeks when you picked up the craft.

In saying that though, contestants, without prior experience, who didn't take up the offer of hiring equipment, and only used "class" time (i.e. once a week, for two hours), would have struggled immensely, I'd imagine.

On the day, I didn't pay a lot of close attention to the other contestants, and spent a lot of time in the Courtyard, with friends. (On the day, the regular Sounds residents play in the courtyard.)

I didn't want to start second-guessing myself (and my set), by hearing some of my tracks dropped by others etc.

Admittedly, I'd suggest that a lot of the contestants - particularly those totally new to DJ'ing - would have known their set back to front, and I dare say, even memorised the pitch readings.

Though, had someone who fit into that category won on the day, their skills (or lack thereof) would have come to light when they played back-to-back with Tenzin and Timmy Trumpet, in the closing hour.

sadly this form of advertising creates a product which directly disrespects the original form, and the tradition of DJing. i'm sorry you can't see that!

My question is, if it was to rely on musical instruments, would they still offer this concept and try to cram a lifetime of learning into a 6 week course and give you the spot on a tour?
Hmmm, I can just hear a fucked guitar solo now....

just enter the comp already jrod


DJs are a dime a dozen these days. Everyone is already a DJ. People call themselves DJs just because they bought some kit ... good on 'em!!


Those with the passion and dedication will go the distance and garner respect ... the others will just press buttons and pump their fists.

its spitting in the face of a profession and absolutely disgusting of itm.


settle down princess, unless your jealous of these people playing shit music at shit festivals and getting a mix on a shit cd i don't see why your so wound up. its plain to see that the competition is a joke, if people really love doing what they do then they will continue to dj whether they are getting gigs/festivals/free promo anyway.

don't get me wrong gigs are awesome to get but i wouldn't give up mixing or producing if the opportunities didn't present themselves anymore (or i would just put on another of my own parties and do things the way i want).

This does seem a little whack. If you guys want a competition for DJs, by DJs, and judged by DJs, we just launched our second harmonic mixing contest yesterday: contest.mixedinkey.com

C'mon Chad! That was a poor plugging effort.

There is already a thread about the MIK competition in this forum.

Yes, I read that in one of the comments on the video, too.

Still, the expression on the dog's face is very cute.

There actually seems to be two other threads about it? Now im confused is it alright for certain brands or promoters to run dj comps and offer prizes but not others?

The difference is.. one is based on skill and track selection (MIK) the other plainly on how cool you are and crowd support (Your Shot)
