I was invited as part of the media to catch a glimpse of this really cool event as it was recorded live to be telecast over Astro Channel 705. Excited over the prospect of catching my first "live" DJ Spinning Competition, I quickly found my seat in Zouk getting all ready to soak in the experience.

The second semi-finals was a really close match up as we saw DJ Ramsey pit his rock music control versus DJ Musher with his highly skilled hi-tech spinning which included an iPad and an Apple laptop. It was also the time where we saw the crowd jump onto the floor dancing and grooving to the beats of the songs. The atmosphere was heated up as we see both DJ Ramsey and DJ Musher's fans move to the music on the dance floor.

Again, they were so closely matched that everyone including the judges had a tough time choosing the winner. Both were equally good, with DJ Ben Cracko having the technical edge, while DJ Ramsey have the rock DJ feel. After contemplating like forever, our 3 judges came to a consensus and DJ Ramsey emerged the champion! Congratulations, as he will be flying off to London for his very own 30 minutes spin slot at the Gallery, Ministry of Sound, a prize far better than any cash prize could offer!
