Liquicity DJ Contest winners
During the last month Liquicity received well over 100 entries for the first ever DJ-contest! All entries were judged based on the following qualities: beatmatching, harmonic mixing, levels, creativity, flow, storytelling and more. The jury went through so many amazing mixes that we had to delay the result in order to give each mix enough attention. But the time is here at last, the result of the 2019 Liquicity Festival DJ-Contest! Make sure to drop by the Nebula stage this summer so you can see all these amazing talents perform.
Winners jury prize
This year the jury consisted of Maduk, Muzzy, Edlan, Polygon, NCT and T&Sugah. They went through all submissions and selected 8 nominees for a final vote. The nominees were: RGW, Mel C, Coastal, Entrophy, Influx, Steve LP, Switch Case & Ele and Entrophix.
After a final round of voting the jury picked the following winners.
1st Place: Coastal
‘’Truly beautiful and emotional selection, nice extra touch with the acapella! ‘’
‘’Harmonic mixing was really on point. Lovely contrast between the first and second part. Watch out for vocal clashes though.‘’
A shared second place for these contestants 😁
‘’This is my kind of stuff here. Technically good. Really flowing well but keep your levels in mind! Some parts are quieter than others‘’
‘’Tracklist was truly something I’d play out as well but including more Liquicity bits as well while keeping it fit perfectly in the overall image of the mix ‘’
‘’Nice selection! Watch the keys here and there though.’’
‘’Super track selection and some very interesting combos’’
“This was probably the mix that had me going most. It takes you on a ride that lasts. Variation on point, proper vibes and solid mixing. It’s simply never boring. Glad no one saw my face with that Low Frequency/Blips combo.”
“Some of the tunes selected deserved a bit more momentum in my opinion and so does the crowd. A couple of more breakdowns would’ve made this near perfect.”
‘’Another really really great ride. Technically on point.’’
‘’This whole mix really felt like one thing and really has a theme.’’
‘’Simple put, a damn good mix! It was hard to choose between this one and Coastal. Although when talking about the flow in general, it stays a bit too much on the same level selection wise, make sure to build towards a climax in these kinda mixes :)‘’
‘’Really solid mix with good doubles and transitions but the track selection could be more exciting!’’
Winners community prize
