Heineken Celebrates Another Successful DJ Competition!
Thousands turned out Sunday at Fond D’or, Dennery for the finals of the twelfth edition of the Heineken Green Synergy DJ competition. The competition, which started this year from July 24 with auditions, was followed later by a preliminary round and a semi-final before Sunday’s grand final. Not even threats from some heavy showers could stop the faithful Heineken Green Synergy followers going to the event that has garnered massive support island-wide.
Twelve DJs took part in the skills segment including the 2014 Champion Mad X and people’s choice winner DJ Leus. The other finalists were Ecstatic Entertainment, DJ Play, C-4, DJ Mikey, DJ Y, DJ Moko, DJ Wayne, Swal-I, Hyper Supreme and DJ Sniper.
Nine DJs participated in the clash component, among them the defender Rocket Launcher. The other DJs were Run It Red, DJ Omega, Mega B, DJ Thurum, Lil Yute, DJ Twis, DJ Shabba and Small Fries.
In both segments two new winners emerged with Lil Yute, a first timer, dethroning Rocket Launcher in the clash. The skills component was won by Ecstatic Entertainment who has been very consistent throughout the competition. In second place was a former Heineken Green Synergy winner Swal-I with DJ Play placing third.
Each participant received a plaque and Heineken headphones with trophies going to the second and first places in the clash and the top three in the skills component.
Ecstatic Entertainment received EC$10,000 and will also perform at a Heineken event in St. Martin and other Heineken events locally over the next twelve months.
