How to Win:
We want to see your digital dj skills in action. The best way to do that is by employing some of the tricks we use in our own you tube videos. You DON’T NEED a fancy video to enter, but the more you show us the more likely we are to like your skills.
- Get a friend to shoot the video or put a camera on a tri-pod (don’t worry about quality!)
- download a program that does video screen capture so we can see your software in action.
- record the audio output of your software
This contest will be judged by a representative from Dj TechTools, Remix Magazine and the owner of Karma. Here is the criteria:
- song sequencing
- popularity of your video on YouTube (so promote yourself!)
- creative use of hardware (if used)
- difficulty of mixes and or techniques
Karma resorts own a pair of beautiful properties on the Indonesian island of Bali. These 5 star resorts offer the very highest in quality but in a relaxed no-attitude environment. International djs often make Karma a stopping over point on the way to other gigs, where they play sets ranging from relaxed daytime grooves to full moon parties that last until morning. You will be staying in a luxury villa at the Karma Kandra resort which is perched on hill with a beach and the dj booth down bellow on the ocean front.
Do I need to be doing crazy things like controllerism to win? No- just be yourself.
Can I use any software? Yes, any dj software including Ableton is acceptable.
What Music Style? Be yourself!
When will the winners be announced? December 15th
When will I be going to Bali? Early 2009 depending on the winners schedule.
Is my flight included? Yes, your flight and lodging are paid for but you are responsible for food and drink.
