Ambrosia Maui, voted the Best Bar by MauiTime readers in this year’s Best of Maui, is looking for a DJ. Not just any DJ, but Maui’s Next Top DJ. That means talent. Who gets to pick this talent? Well thats me and you, literally. To be part of the process and cast your vote, and ensure that you are going to get to enjoy fat beats all night long, just come by Ambrosia this Friday night starting at ten. Judges DJ CIA, DJ Astro Raph and DJ Del Sol are quality control, and I happen to be rounding out the judging as well.
Last Friday night was the first night of competition. Six DJ’s vied for the title, but only 4 made it. Next Friday, 2 get knocked out again to vie for final title.
DJ Chrest started out the night, starting at 10 sharp. He started his set off with Lady Gaga, and got lots of folks on the dance floor. The set finished heavy with gabber. Did you know gabber is a yiddish term for “mate” ?
Next DJ Mats spun a solid session.
I was stoked on her set. She did a good mix of different music, and snuck a bit a fidget in. Crowd was going for it.
Mats finished with a solid score from the judges, 9, 8, 8, I believe. DJ Modika was next.
Are you noticing something peculiar here? That’s right she is spinning vinyl. What a treat! Old School, Modika spun a big breaks session. She rocked out and looked like she was having a blast. I gave extra points for her dancing at everyone elses sets too.
DJ La Rage was all the rage. Seriously the best dressed DJ, she came in full costume. I get that. But she also spun a solid set. I learned all about DJ CIA’s shoes meantime. La Rage brought out the best in the crowd and came out with a 8, 9, 10 from the judges.
DJ Technyq was super cool and low pro.
DJ Aaron Jae spun the final set. I don’t know what was going on, but we all loved this set. People were dancing, Judges were liking what they were hearing. I swear it wasn’t the Makers Manhattan’s I was drinking. DJ Aaron Jae scored high, a perfect 30 for the night.
UPDATE: WINNERS ANNOUNCED:
Next week join the fun at Ambrosia on Friday the 26th to see DJ Chrest, DJ Aaron Jae, DJ La Rage, and DJ Mats BATTLE! Congratulations winners.
