2 mini mixes by DJ SOO

dj_soo 6:46 PM - 30 April, 2009
So I entered this dj competition thing last month. Yea, I know most comps are a retarded way for clubs to exploit djs, undercut the rest, get free promo/djs and blahblahblah but my city is fucked enough already in terms of bullshit club offers and undercutters and the grand prize was a trip for 2 to Montreal and it would have been a nice treat for the wifey. Probably helped up my profile in the city too - at least among the more mainstream heads...

Anyway, I ended up taking the whole thing and I figured I post the 2 15-minute sets I made to share:

The first was for the initial heat where i was up against 8 other guys...

01. Intro
02. 20th Century Fox Theme
03. Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock - It Takes Two
04. Mr Oizo feat. Carmen Castro - Two Takes It
05. Kelis vs Fort Knox 5 - Milkshake (dj soo edit)
06. Cypress Hill - Insane In The Brain (instr)
07. Stevie Wonder - Superstition (J-Roc remx // dj soo edit)
08. Z-Trip - blending interlude
09. Reel 2 Real - I Like To Move It (acapella)
10. DJ Rockatron - Sunglasses In Bmore (MTA edit)
11. Chew Fu ft. J-Cast, A-Clay & PVH - Sunglasses at Night (refix)
12. Stanton Warriors - Pop Your Cork (dj soo edit)
13. Justice vs Simian - We Are Your Friends (Scottie B, King Tutt, Samir mix)
14. Justice vs Simian - We Are Your Friends
15. Whodini - Friends
16. Justice vs Simian - We Are Your Friends (Scottie B, King Tutt, Samir mix)
17. Nirvana - Come As You Are
18. Fedde Le Grand - Put Your Hands Up for DJ SOO (dj soo edit)
19. DJ Class feat. Lil Jon - I'm The Ish (remix)
20. Bobby Evans - Freak-A-Zoid Robotz (RMXXOLOGY THEME Instr)
21. Fugees - Ready Or Not (acapella)
22. Fugees - Ready Or Not (DJ Hype remix // dj soo edit)
23. Pendulum - Tarantula (dj soo edit)
24. M.I.A. - Paper Planes (The Ego remix // dj soo edit)

The finals consisted of the top 2 placers for the previous heats (8 DJs in total) and 2 wild card djs who were voted in. The contest was judged by the residents of the night (including the winner of the Redbull 3style comp in van), 2 big radio mixshow djs in the city, and Team Canada from Montreal. This is the set I prepared for that.

01. Johnny Cash - A Boy Named Soo
02. LL Cool J - Mama Said Knock You Out (Z-Trip remix)
03. Ol' Dirty Bastard feat. Kelis vs Mark Ronson - Got Your Money (dj soo edit)

man soo just got down downloading listen to the first 5 min and its straight fire!!

Soo also if you dont mind sending me your milkshake edit it was fire, i must have it !!!!!
dj_soo 10:27 PM - 30 April, 2009
thanks guys!

Yea, most of those edits were put together quickly for the comp - a lot I just did a live recording on my 57 or chopped up in Peak (a lot of the edits were just acapalla outros and intro-chorus-intro dealies). I'm not a big fan of making shit this way but I was on a deadline and having only 15 minutes to play led to lots of editing to fit everything in the set that I wanted...

I kinda want to sit down and make some quality versions using Ableton before sharing...
