Just a quick aside… the sun’s been out, there are (still) dozens of people working on site, to the welcome sound of generators and birdsong. It’s all coming together, and Leopallooza is only ONE WEEK TOMORROW!
But back to the matter in hand… out of the many entries we had for our TREELINE DJ competition, there wasn’t one that sucked. Which is good news. What’s even better is that all were veryaccomplished and well-mixed.
But we had to have one winner. And we do.
The winner is announced right at the bottom, but we need to put in a little mention of the other finalists first…
The two runners up….
Sweatshop mixed a beauty. Great afternoon electronica, put together sickeningly well.
A great mix-up of all sorts of breaks… this mix shows that the DJ (Timmy) is really aware of the crowd who would be listening at Leopallooza. Timmy was a very strong contender.
And these two also really warrant a vigorous tummy rub….
Jay Cornish – not quite what we’re after for a warm-up, but we were throwing ourselves around the office to this! Good work. Get in touch next year.
Ninja Peanut… whoever or whatever you may be: over 900 plays is no mean feat. If we had a 3am slot, it would be yours. Nice.
So, that leaves the winner, who is…
Ian Paterson has shown some real originality in this mix and, as well as encapsulating Leopallooza’s diverse line up, he has also really hit the brief. So this is our winner. Good work Ian, and well done… We have a nice little slot prepared just for you on Saturday afternoon.
Come see Ian in The Treeline, with such esteemed company as KID GLOVES, LUCIUS BRAVE, THE SCRIBES, HONG KONG PING PONG, BLAMMA! BLAMMA!, SOSO, CONNERZ, DJ KBS and many more.
Well done all and thanks to everyone who entered x
(Ian, grab a cup of tea, we’ll be in touch soon.)
