When I heard Q-Dance held a DJ comp leading into Defqon 1, I thought I'd toss my hat into the ring and see what I could do. I decided to challenge myself and put together a rawstyle mix showcasing some of the best and brightest of the underground in the horse scene.
Much to my surprise, I received a (very polite) email a couple of days later saying that my submission had been rejected, apparently the production wasn't high enough quality. I mean sure, the artists on display aren't exactly Headhunterz, but I would have much preferred to have let the public decide that during the voting process than being filtered out before the comp even began. That being said, I do understand that Q-Dance is a business and they have every right to decide what quality they want to be on display because that quality reflects the quality of their brand.
I'm really proud of this mix though, and so I've uploaded it here. To all the amazing artists in the fandom, keep making your fucking great music <3
