My vote: DJ 1 - definitely fit the theme for the week (saap segment) better. Great work.

DJ1, started out heavy and just kept gunning from there. Hot mix, a little messy in your mid-range frequencies with a lot of percussive layers going on. Bass was hitting hard though.
DJ2, the mix was way too centered and mono with no spatial/stereo depth. If you listen on headphones, there's nothing going on in the L/R ears to fill out soundspace. Also the slow drop at the end felt forced especially with that key change to the lower pitch.

My vote, DJ1

Imma vote DJ 1. I loved the variation in tempo and the trap variations everywhere. DJ 2 also tried some interesting things, like that shift in key signature at the end, but the EQ was off and the original song could have shown through a lot more brightly imo. Both were solid segments tho!

DJ 1: The intro sounded slightly off (by less than .5 semitones) pitch wise so it caused some dissonance. Loved the drums throughout, thought all of that was well placed. Might've been the best use of Going Bad that i've hard so far in a mix.

DJ 2: Sick instrumental, but i felt like it wasnt used to its potential cause it didnt work fully with each note in the jazzy b song. Really try to make sure that within each phrase, every part of the instrumental harmonizes with the note being played/sung in the original track.

My vote: DJ 1
