The winning mix will also sit proudly in the LWE Mix series, hosted with our official media partners Mixcloud. As well as receiving promotion across both LWE and Mixcloud’s social networks. This is a great chance for your mix to get noticed in a mix series that has included a wide range of producers including: Friction, Anja Schneider, Mr. G, Dj Emerson, Tom Flynn, Davide Squillace, Friend Within and more.

Entrants must be 18 years of age or older. Submit your mix which should be no more than an hour long.
