This was a lot harder than expected! Mixes ranging from deep house to full on bass music came in from relative new comers to turntable veterans. Many were surprises, from names I don’t get to see or hear, and really good! It’s been educational, widening my awareness of the talent around me. All contestants are on the guest list for Fridays party, thank you for sharing your art!

Mixes were judged on the following:

. Appropriate Track Selection
– knowledge of J.Phlips sound as a DJ
– awareness of complimenting, not competing, with headliner
. Technical Ability
– cohesiveness and creativity of transitions
. Over All Phrasing
– intro, peaks, valleys, outro
. Character
– atmosphere, energy, feel and mood
. Originality
– uniqueness, creativity

So I had to pick 2 winners: MR ALEXANDER and JC HANNA. Congratulations gentlemen, you will be playing with J.PHLIP & FORTUNE at Apartment 720 for the Apart 2 Year Anniversary!!
