DJ1: The background beat was hot but it was too loud, it was pretty hard to hear the vocals and their quality was sharply reduced. I also think the drop came in a bit too early.
DJ2: The background cricket noise was too loud imo but I liked all the effects you added.
I vote DJ1.

DJ1: agree that the drop came in a bit too early, the beat was sweet but it felt a bit overwhelming right before and right after the drop
DJ2: Loved the synth noises and all the effects, the maraca could be a bit quieter but it definitely adds to the vibe

I vote DJ2

I loved the effects and the overall concept of DJ 2 much more, but agree that needs to be mixed a bit more cleanly. A lotta stuff sounds muddy. Gonna go with DJ 2

Loved the funkiness of DJ 2 - a fresh take on a bhangra mix. Cricket sound was a little annoying by the end though. Like the beat on DJ 1 but it just sounded distorted and the early beat drop was just offputting.

DJ 2 has my vote

DJ 2 damn swaggy ass -- def work on levels though. Could be a hot ass mix if you make a full version.

Dj1 I waited for the vocals to come up to regular EQ but it was the same throughout which was sorta blue balls but overall vibe was pretty dope with the beat.

DJ 2 for swagginess. I lowe swing.

I vote DJ 2. That syncopated instrumental in the background was way too loud though.

DJ 1 - wish there was more separation in your mix. I liked that you changed the tempo of the original song, but I didn't like the bass overtone throughout the entire mix. There was a lot of build up before 0:52 in your mix, but then I wish you had something different with the drop and the mix afterwards. Overall, I feel you mix could have used more variety.

DJ 2 - loved the beat that you used. As others stated, I wish the "cricket sound"/"maraca" wasn't as prominent. It was more prominent than even the vocals of the song. Cleaner of the two mixes, but I feel you may need to do more if you face tougher opponents in the future.

My vote: DJ 2
