Hi Vane! So first of all, congratulations on winning Miller SoundClash! How does it feel?
"Thank you! Wow, this was a wonderful experience. Miller SoundClash was the best experience of my life, I am so happy!"
How did you feel after your set. Did you feel confident that you had a chance of winning?
"Yeah I felt very confident because it was a pool party and my sound is very tropical and percussive and I know the crowds here can really enjoy that sound."
Next month Miller SoundClash returns to Las Vegas! The 10 finalists, who have been selected from 9 countries worldwide are preparing to fly to Las Vegas to perform at The Miller SoundClash Grand Final at Marquee DayClub.
The winner gets to perform a set ahead of The Chainsmokers, sign a recording contract with AfterCluv DanceLab (Universal Music) and be interviewed by DJ Mag, so the stakes are high!
These are the DJs who will be competing for 2017’s coveted Miller SoundClash Crown!
