    Giveing up

    My advice: don't give up. Dancing brings along multiple desirable traits/qualities to a person. For more encouragement, visit our FB group & discuss (as this site is fairly dead): ~ Basim :)

    Punjabi Classic/Folk Song Recommendations?

    Hi @Rice Aag, You may want to post this topic up in our FB group as the website traffic has died down: You have a pretty good list there, but just briefly glancing it over, I would include the late Surjit Bindrakhia whose honestly had several...

    Ne1 still use DC?

    FYI - This new site is fee based - $6 per month or $72 per year. They don't tell you until you try signing up. I would personally avoid as the original Dholcutz was free & there are plenty of other places to get bhangra content. ~ Basim :)

    Week 4: Bracket B - Matchup 3 (Voting Closed)

    My vote: DJ 1 - very clean mix. As GSingh mentioned, Pata Chalgea sounded so hot with the beat you had going. Absolutely loved it. I felt you had great vision and execution. It's crazy how both DJ's sampled the same motivational speech from the 2006 Rocky Balboa movie! ~ Basim :)

    Week 4: Bracket B - Matchup 2 (Voting Closed)

    My vote: DJ 2 - why was your intro so low in volume compared to the rest of your mix? You should have gradually brought up the volume to the rest of the mix. DJ 1 was way too messy - almost like it was thrown together last minute. An example that even bad ears can make is the poor transition...

    Week 4: Bracket B - Matchup 1 (Voting Closed)

    My vote: DJ 1 DJ 2 - where was the HP incorporation? I can't get a sense on where or if you used it - perhaps you used it in the background, but this HP soundtrack has a very unique sound which I feel if you mess with a lot, only retracts from the creating a truly blending into a Punjabi mix...

    Week 4: Bracket A - Matchup 1 (Voting Closed)

    My vote: DJ 1 - great job incorporating the soundtrack! Fav part was 0:36 onward and especially the drop, followed by what you did at 0:43-0:48. I felt after that point, your ending could have been a little stronger, but nicely done overall. DJ 2 had some creative ideas, especially with that...

    Week 4: Bracket A - Matchup 2 (Voting Closed)

    My vote: DJ 1 Absolutely incredible mixes by both mixers! I think both did an excellent job of capturing the essence of this challenge. To make it this far (semi-finals) in Bracket A, I sort of expected to be splitting hairs on determining a winning mix. DJ 2 had great creativity, vision, and...

    Week 3: Bracket A - Matchup 3 (Voting Closed)

    My vote: DJ 1 - definitely fit the theme better. Love this song :) Close matchup. I felt both DJ's did a good job trying to be creative/unique in their own ways. DJ 2 - I loved your intro and especially the "chipmunk" sounds you threw in. I echo what guranshsingh wrote about the transition...

    Week 3: Bracket A - Matchup 2 (Voting Closed)

    My vote: DJ 1 After hearing a lot of other mixes in Bracket B, both of these this matchup really stood out in a good way. My thoughts align with parmszn mentioned. Most of DJ 2's mix felt like a big build up with very little chorus and then another build up with an ending that didn't fit the...
