RITJ09 Entrants Selected!

The competitors for the regional heats for the 2009 Jansen Rumble in the Jungle have been announced

13 Aug 2009

New Zealand’s Annual Drum and Bass DJ Competition
http://www.rumblejungle.co.nz

With the selection of the regional entrants for the 2009 Rumble in the Jungle heats now complete, 40 DJs will look forward to competing in the 4 regional heats all across New Zealand in August.

With such an awesome array of prizes up for grabs, over 80 DJs answered the call for the competition. The entries have been scrutinised and then selected on their merits, with the DJs who made the cut now moving onto the live event stage of the competition.

The regional events are a series of three knockout rounds. In the first round, 10 DJs compete in the first stage, who are then knocked down to 4, and finally the final two compete to claim the title of regional champion. The top two DJs from each regional are then confirmed in the grand final, to be held in Wellington on the 9th of October.

The rounds are short and the pressure is high, and the sets will be exhilarating and tight, as the hours of practice get thrown down in all out audio warfare.

There can be only one Rumble in the Jungle champion – who will it be this year?
