For all those with aspirations of becoming a disco jockey (DJ) at their own convenience, this website may be a good place to start. Not because it’s exceptional, but because it seems to be the only one of its kind. Having discovered a gap in the market, www.myfavdj.in, gives professional and amateur DJs a platform to interact with international DJs, upload and receive feedback on their music and compete with the best.
The latest on the site is the MyFavDJ Awards 2010. Music enthusiasts can now vote for the BestIndian DJ, through an online poll, across all genres — Bollywood, Chillout, Drum and Bass/Dub Step, Electronica, Hip Hop, House, Rock or Retro, Techno or Trance.
Vishal Shetty, a Mumbai DJ and Eddie Cruzet, founder of 360 degrees Customised Media Solutions, launched the website to make the DJing an easier alternative career option.“So many clubs are opening up everyday, and no one in this country has so far come forward to acknowledge these guys who play music all night long to entertain you.
And we thought why not… so we started this site,” says Shetty.The participants have to nominate themselves in their preferred genre, and then upload an album. The voters will then vote for the one they think deserves the title.
The winners for the awards will be announced on May 21.“This site can be a good idea for house party music, since there will be hundreds of mixed songs to pick from,” adds Shetty.
