What an intense and inspiring first week at the Burn Residency Ibiza ! We have had a very hectic schedule from IMS to the opening parties, workshops with Fat Bloy Slum, Solomun and Joe Goddard (Hot Chip) and masterclasses with industry people like Clark Warner (Beatport), Ryan Keeling (Resident Advisor) or James Rand (SAE).
By now the 18 contestants have had to face three different challenges to gain a slot in the final round.
The first challenge happened straight after their arrival to the island. They had to play a 20 min set each proofing their skills in front of the jury.
The second challenge consisted in remixing Maceo Plex’s track “Walk Alone”, and the third was about choosing the perfect track for a sunset moment at Cafe Mambo.
The level is very high and we are very happy to have such a talented and nice bunch of people, although it makes it evenmore difficult to choose the final winners.
Im looking forward to an exciting second week, with new workshops with Maceo Plex, Aviccii and Steve Lawler and the final challenges. After this second week we will know better who is best suited to become a resident DJs at one of Ibiza’s top club. A huge opportunity that needs to be given to the ones that can make the best out of it.
