Once again burn studios are looking for the most talented yet underrated up and coming DJs all over the world, selecting the very best amongst them through a mix contest and face-to-face competitions, to give the lucky ones the unique chance of a summer-long residency in Ibiza’s best clubs, including a DJ bootcamp with Maceo Plex, Steve Lawler, Solomun and many others. Here’s how you can enter the contest:
✔ Submit your mix via Mixcloud. It has to be between 15:00 and 20:00 minutes in length, and you have to use at least one track from Beatport’s Top 100 – apart from that there are no borders to your creativity. Deadline is Monday, March 18, 2013.
✔ Impress the jury. For each country, there’s a jury selecting the top 5 mixes that will make it to the next round. The Austrian jury consists of editors and DJs courtesy of FM4, The Gap, Vice and many more. Entrants will be judged on technical ability, originality and style.
✔ The Mix-Off. The top 5 DJs of each country will compete at a mix-off event held locally in early April (more info tba.), where one lucky DJ or DJane per country will emerge victorious and make it to round three.
✔ Ibiza. From May 20 to June 2, all the national winners will be flown to Ibiza to visit the International Music Summit 2013, before heading out for a DJ bootcamp with lectures and workshops with scene heavyweights such as Joe Goddard of Hot Chip, Maceo Plex, Solomun, Steve Lawler and many others. After two weeks, the best three DJs will be selected.
✔ The Residency. Three lucky winners will be staying in Ibiza all summer long for a residency in the island’s best clubs, with accommodation and monthly fees provided.
