At the beginning of March, we announced a major competition in partnership with Nitelife Magazine to find a DJ talent worthy of a set on one of our main stages. Over 70 DJ hopefuls uploaded an original 20-minute mix to SoundCloud for their chance to play a set at NASS 2019 and we put it to the public to choose our five finalists. Those with the most votes went through to stage two of the competition facing a judging panel made up of the NASS booking team, NASS artists and Nitelife to decide the overall winner.
We are delighted to announce Jemima Nettleton aka DJ VU is our winner and will play a set on either the Southbank, Warehouse, The Hangar or The Lock In at NASS 2019. You can listen to the winning mix in full below (and trust us...it's sick)
Read the judge's feedback below:
MIKE LIGHTFORD (NASS DIRECTOR OF MUSIC)
The energy in all mixes was really apparent and it was difficult to pick an outright winner, but her balance of tune selection and some choice transitions gave her the edge.
DJ JONEZY (BEATS / 1XTRA)
Selection and mixing was on point, and loved the intro’d mix with Insane in the Brain – that first transition was heavy!
CHARLIE G (NASS PROGRAMMER)
Highly impressed with the energy and freshness in the mix, having programmed the drum and bass stages of NASS for over 10 years and heard many mixes, DJ VU stands out as an exciting up-comer!
We loved the variety of DJ VU’s entry, that coupled with her mixing ability and some slick transitions really set her apart.
Congrats DJ VU! We can't wait to see your set at NASS this summer! Snap up a ticket today and come and party with us!
