Held in partnership with Paras Pro Audio, the event in Pune was hosted at the elite nightclub – MiAmi at the JW Marriott hotel on 19th and 20th August. The elimination round of the ’10 minutes to Fame’ DJ competition was conducted on day 1, and this was judged by reputed veterans DJ Shiva, DJSanj, DJ Varun, DJ Monty, and DJ Abhishek (from team Pioneer), as participants from across Pune, Mumbai and Nashik, showcased their talents usingindustry standard gear from Pioneer DJ. The final round, which was conducted on day 2, was adjudged by superstar DJs – Tuhin Mehta, Skip, and Mash.

During the competition, each DJ is challenged to impress the judges by rocking the crowd with a set incorporating any genre of electronic music. Points were awarded based on Originality, Skill, Track Selection and Crowd Reaction; and in the end DJ Abhi (Abhinay Dole) of Nashik was crowned as the winner of the competition and DJ Vaibhav (Vaibhav Suradkar) as the runner-up, with the judges felicitating DJ Abhi with a brand new Pioneer DDJ Wego 4, whle DJ Vaibhav received a brand new Pioneer DDJ Wego 3.

Prior to the finals, however, Day 2 witnessed the audience being treated to a Masterclass session, where DJ Skip and DJ Mash delivered in depth knowledge into the workings, features and controls of Rekordbox softwares using Pioneer DJ’s CDJ 2000 nexus2, Pioneer DJ Controllers and Pioneer DJToriaz SP16 Samplers and sequencers. This was followed by a captivating session on the intricacies of the Pioneer DJ CDJ2000NSX2 & DJM900NSX2, which was conducted by Tuhin Mehta and DJ Skip. The masterclass acted as the perfect insight for finalists selected from the previous days eliminations, to understand the full capacity of the Pioneer NXS2 system, which they strived to incorporate within their sets during the final round face-off. As the event came to a successful close, all participants were presented certificates signed by the three master DJs as a token of participation.



Tuhin Mehta shares “It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of this initiative, which aimedto not just enhance Pioneer DJ’s business presence in the region, but also to give back to the DJ fraternity at large and help aspiring DJs grow qualitatively. The turnout was great – the talent we observed was fabulous – and all in all I think we had a great event.”

DJ Mash echoes the sentiment saying, “This was a fantastic initiative, and it was great to see how enthusiastic all these young and aspiring DJs actually are. They’re definitely talented; and I believe the event has provided a wonderful platform for them to explore DJ’ing in a more qualitative and fruitful manner. Kudos to the organizing team for putting this event together!”

The event in Raipur, which was conducted in partnership with Prem Sound Equipment, hosted the same ’10 minutes to Fame’ DJ Competition, which witnessed the elimination rounds being held on 22nd and 23rd August at the popular Mocha Lounge, with the final round being hosted at the popular Agrsen Dham on 31st August. While the schedule in Raipur did not sport a Masterclass session, the experience that the audience had, was ever-insightful and entertaining nonetheless, with DJs from across the region flocking to the event to impress the judges - DJ Abhishek (Team Pioneer) and DJ Kanwalat the eliminations, while veterans DJ Akshay and DJ Lokesh took on jury duties for the final round. The finals saw DjRaazid (Razid Sheikh) of Nagpur being declared as the winner as he took home a brand new Pioneer DDJ Wego 4, while DJRavinesh (Ravinesh Thakur) of Rajnandgaontook home a Pioneer DDJ Wego 3 as the runner-up.

DJ Lokesh shareshis views saying, “The intention of this event was to encourage young talent to come out and showcase what they have, and I must say, that’s what these young DJs did. Not only are these guys talented, but they also have the zeal to learn – many of them came up to us at the end of the event with questions about technologies and techniques, which was so heartening for us.It’s great to see the potential of a bright future for DJ’ing in India, and I’d like to congratulate the organizing team for taking such an initiative.”

DilipDevjani – director of Dev Electronics, expressed his views on the success of the two events, as he quoted, “As the official distribution partners of Pioneer DJ for western India, our goal has always been to connect the with ever growing DJ community in the region. Not only have we aimed to offer the latest frontiers of DJ technology from Pioneer DJ, but we’ve also done our best to equip them with key knowledge and information to further leverage their craft. The ‘10 minutes to Fame’ DJ competition that we recently culminated at Pune and Raipur respectively, presented amateur and aspiring DJs with a platform to not just showcase their talent but also gain regional repute and be felicitated by top DJs with exciting prizes. Alongside, we also met our goal of introducing the audience, especially amateur/bedroom and beginner DJs, to Pioneer DJ’s new line of rekordbox controllers and the top of the line NXS2 system; and educating them on the advantages of the respective systems. Both events received an amazing turn-out, and we appreciate the hard work and effort invested by our regional partners Paras Pro Audio and Prem Sound Equipment in putting together two fantastic events along with our team. We also thank all the esteemed judges for gracing our event with their presences; and send out our congratulations to all participants, especially the winners, for showcasing their talent.”
