Since its initial launch in 2001, BACARDI DJ has gone on to become the original interactive online music mixer and DJ competition in the UK. On 1st September, BACARDI Rum unveiled the 2006 version of its interactive online music mixer. This new and improved version boasts an on-line DJ contest & cutting-edge technology including the ability to download your favorite mixes as an MP3.
Building on the success of 2005's competition, BACARDI DJ will be supported and endorsed by some of the UK's most respected members of the music industry. Together, they will form part of the elite judging panel that pick the overall winner in December.
The 2006 version once again boasts an exciting range of brand new loops and vocals created by some of the world's best DJs and producers including Jon Cutler, Kerri Chandler and Liquid People which will set the mixer apart from all others.
Back this year will be the BACARDI DJ masterclass which will offer sessions in both DJing and music production. Held in a central London location and catering for approximately 60 music lovers, the masterclass will be held in October and will be run by Point Blank. Places on these fully interactive sessions will be limited so for a chance to take part in these sessions log onto www.bacardi.co.uk
