DJ 2. the dhol got crowded between 0:20-0:29 (I think either a diff dhol pattern or slowing down the mix would've helped), but before and after I enjoyed a lot

I'm gonna go with DJ 2 for EQ and for sounding more like a saap segment and loved the "saap baliyeee" out of the blue - worked REALLY well! I have to say DJ 1 was also quite interesting but the beat made it sound more like a dhamaal segment. For saaps, you HAVE to make use of the off beats and syncopate!!

DJ 1: Interesting take on the song, sounded like Bindrakhia's vocals technically worked with that instrumental but the actual music in the track didn't so it sounded off. Also dont know how i feel about the mix post-buildup. Fell extremely flat coming out of that buildup b/c it didn't have a solid enough bassline imo.

DJ 2: Nice combo of songs, but the volumes were messed up esp during the middle section. Shoulda lowered the background a considerable amount before the Bindrakhia vocals come in cause i couldnt hear any of the lyrics before it. Overall a solid, cohesive mix though.

My vote: DJ 2

My vote: DJ 2 - I enjoyed your intro and your mix overall, but be careful, it got pretty messy from 0:54 onwards imho. A lot of good feedback given by others, so make note of it and improve your craft, otherwise you may not make it past future rounds.

DJ 1: I really liked the change in the feel of the segment at the drop at :34. For me, the intro was a bit drawn out compared to length of the rest of the mix and overall fell short of the energy i expect from a saap segment.
DJ 2: Loved the intro. Very danceable segment, like it came straight from a team's mix. Agree with dadoo about dhol sounding a little crowded but still hit.
My vote: DJ 2

DJ 1: Cool intro, is this blinding lights I hear?!

Dj 2: ooh intro is nice, sound is more clean and full- haha I can hear all the different samples in here love that. The Hit kinda fell flat because the build up had the same amount of power/width. Try to make the hit more powerful in the future. Listen to some EDM song hits for the impact.

Vote: DJ 2
