Heineken Cel­e­brates Another Suc­cess­ful DJ Com­pe­ti­tion!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

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.
