Do you have aspirations of becoming a superstar DJ? Want to play alongside stars like Fresh, Guetta, Euphonik, Avicci and Steve Aoki? Well here’s your chance. Olmeca Tequila and Aoki have teamed up to find 10 talented up and coming stars. They’ve launched the BE THE DJ School, in which if you’re selected as one of the ten winners, you’ll get a masterclass lesson by the American DJ.
All you need to do is download an exclusive edit of Aoki’s new track, “Come with Me” and give it your unique touch. It has been available on the Facebook app for quite some time now, but you’ve still got until the 26th to get involved. Once the ten are selected by Aoki, they will jet off to Rotterdam in February for the masterclass, which includes mentoring and one-on-one coaching.
It gets even better. The person who shows the most promise and potential will be invited to be a resident in one of Ibiza’s clubs for the summer of 2013. Olmeca Brand Manager is Renzo Puccini says, “We are proud to invest in the next generation of electronic music coming out of South Africa. There is so much talent here and an international, well-supported initiative like this will definitely result in big opportunities for the ten DJ hopefuls. Every DJ dreams of playing in Ibiza, and this is the ultimate prize for the winner.”
Aoki says: “The Olmeca BE THE DJ School is an incredible opportunity for new DJs – I’m excited to see what raw, new talent is out there and can’t wait to see one of these guys launch their DJ career in the dance capital of the world next summer. I started making music when I was in college, so I’m really excited to have the opportunity to help young DJs pursue their dance music dreams with Olmeca Tequila.”
Cool huh? So if you have what it takes search for the BE THE DJ Facebook app and get on that ish. You could be attending a press conference in Cape Town as part of Aoki’s tour to SA in December.
