KELVIN KACHINGWE, Lusaka
CLUB Vegas resident disc jockey DJ Blocks has won the national finals of the global Miller SoundClash contest and will now be heading for the world contest in Las Vegas, United States next month.
DJ Blocks beat off competition from Lusaka finalists DJ Ken, DJ Gavino, DJ Sebastian Dutch and Kitwe-based DJ Fox and DJ Quake, when they took to the mixing desks last Saturday at The Web on Kafue Road in Lusaka.
The mixing extravaganza was aimed at finding the country’s best DJ to represent Zambia in the worldwide final in the United States clubbing capital Las Vegas.
Last Saturday’s event at The Web Nightclub was the culmination of a five-day programme that saw six DJ’s chosen as finalists to battle it out, from which an overall winner was eventually chosen.
The finalists were judged on a series of criteria, including mic use, flare, mixing ability and crowd appeal by the panel of judges consisting DJ Rico Ricardo, DJ Kevin Van Boxtel and Mushota Katayi.
DJ Blocks will now go on to experience the sizzling hotspot of Las Vegas for a super-charged high roller experience, capturing the bright lights of elite clubbing scene in Las Vegas and a chance to be the ultimate winner of the prestigious 2015 Miller SoundClash DJ competition.
The Miller international DJ search competition seeks to discover local talent and gives talented DJ’s the experience of a lifetime.
Miller’s Global Music Sound Clash is the ultimate international global DJ search competition that opens entries to all DJs globally hosted by Mix Cloud, a global music streaming service which offers a blanket music license and can legally host DJ mixes.
The global talent search, run by Miller Genuine Draft in association with Mixcloud and DJ Mag, was one of the highlights of last year.
DJs from all corners of the globe battled it out in an online competition, before one finalist from each competing country was flown out Las Vegas to do battle at a packed-out, sun-drenched pool party.
Last year’s competition was intense, and eventual winners went on to play high profile festival gigs around the world.
