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.

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.”

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.

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.”

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.”
