My votes go to DJ 4 and DJ 1!

DJ 1 got me nostalgic with the Young, Wild, n Free haha. DJ 4 , there was great handling of percussion/bass and EQ.

Great creative direction with all these DJs though!

I gotta go with DJ 3 and DJ 4.
I thought the samples DJ 3 used fit very well and allowed the mix to flow smoothly, but from 0:10-0:20 it did feel a bit congested and there was a lot going on. In my opinion, DJ 4 had the best-executed mix in terms of EQ as Jasnoor mentioned.

DJ 5: The toosie slide sample didn't seem to combine well with the original song and to me, it sounded like they were just overlayed rather than mixed together

I gotta pick DJ 1 and 4!

DJ 1: loved the boom bap vibe with the nice melody. The vibe was super chill and the EQ matched it perfectly
DJ 2: Coulda done a bit more with it I feel. Lost a lot of the song but didn't really get anything back in return
DJ 3: I felt the background clashed with the original song a bit - perhaps key signature? Vibe was nice tho. Coulda used a bit more help from risers and falls
DJ 4: 808s really hit at the end. Loved the snares you used at the end. Could have used a bit more help at the start since the build up was so long
DJ 5: Drake song definitely clashed with the original song a bit but good effort trying to match key signatures. Also felt dhol coulda been louder.
