Finding and Winning Competitions for DJs and Producers

Guest post by Eric Louis

Whether you’re an aspiring DJ, producer or both, competitions are a great way to hone your craft and get noticed. The nature of competitions forces you to do two important things: you have a deadline so you have to get your work done in a set time frame, and you have to put something out there for the world to hear.

Winners of these competitions usually get a release on known labels and other prizes like Dj/production related software and hardware, as well as exposure that could translate into new bookings and opportunities.

Listen to Global Vibe Radio 043 ft. Alex Font

 

For the latest and forty-third edition of 6AM’s Global Vibe Radio we present you an exclusive studio mix courtesy of Valencia-based artist Alex Font.

Alex Font is a musician, producer and DJ, with a style heavily based on classical music, funk, jazz, flamenco, latin and techno-dub. He refers to his principal genre as “The Real House”, a fruit of music evolution that first began more than twelve years ago when he bought his first records and began deejaying at small clubs in Valencia, Spain.

Alex is strongly influenced by the cities of London (where he lived three years and continuously keeps visiting), Berlin and Ibiza, as well as by the the classic house sounds of the main house music schools of New York, Chicago and Detroit, mixing it with a touch of latin, jazz and sounds coming from techno-dub.

Alex is also the founder of his own record label called acmé, which he has introduced to the world with a string of four highly successful EPs featuring himself and more recently Romanian producer Sepp.
