Both DJ's did a good job with the mixdown. Levels were on point and the mixes had a full feeling! Good Job!

DJ 1, mix was very clean. The choice of instruments you added really complimented each other and the original song.

DJ 2, the concept was good and your intro into Charhi Jawani was nice but I was not impressed with the slow down drop. At the slowed down portion, the layers used felt very similar to the pre drop and it was in no way different apart from being slow.

This was very close for me and I vote for DJ 1.

both were swaggy af but DJ 1 takes it, even though their mix sounded slightly less clean than DJ 2

the ride cymbals in one of the beats you used, DJ 1, make the whole mix sound crowded and noisy

DJ 1: grime was unreal. Loved the west coast synths in the left channel. Overall a very smooth vibe. lowe it.

DJ 2: I wasn't feeling the english vocals -- didn't really play much relevance to the punjabi song. The kicks felt a bit too sharp for me -- gave off an electronic feel rather than that really heart pounding analog feel this song needs. Would have liked to see some variation on the slow down instead of just a tempo change.

Overall, two very strong matchups honestly -- both DJ's did well but vote: DJ 1

I'm glad this song was given to these two DJ's - really provided a lot to work & experiment with.

As others have said, a great match-up here. Well done to both DJs.

My vote: DJ 2
