Judging

  • Futurebound will be looking for a mix that stands out from the rest, not the standard 'Beatport top 10'.
  • Track selection will be important. Should you chose to use a well known dance floor record, extra points will be given for creativity.
  • Your mix should flow nicely and have a demonstrate a dynamic range, not just banger after banger, double drop after double drop. The art is in the mix.
  • A big part of being a DJ these days is self-promotion. Viper want to see your dedication and that you're pushing your mix publicly. This won't be awarded to any lazy DJs.
