W Hotels Worldwide & Burn Studios DJ Lab


Calling all local DJs! Get ready to spin your hearts out as a major worldwide search for fresh DJ talent launches in our city. The W Hotels & Burn Studios DJ Lab competition is in its third year and six of the best DJs from across the globe are set to win a week-long immersive DJ ‘boot camp’ for their efforts on the decks. And with the DJ mentors set to include Lady Gaga’s producer White Shadow, Fabric resident DJ James Lavelle and funky house producer Gabriel Rene, the stakes are pretty darn high. 

What’s even better is that the week of mentoring takes place in W’s luxury Thai hotels in Bangkok and Koh Samui, with a blowout graduation party at the end of the week. That definitely beats spending hours sweating your ass off in a grad gown! Entry is via mix.dj/djlab2013, where you’ll need to upload an originally produced mix within the next eight weeks.

If you prefer to be on the dancefloor than behind the decks, though, you can head down to Woobar at the W Hong Kong. The Get Wet anniversary pool party on August 10 features three of the entrants in action: resident duo Parvenu, DJ Kenji Hidaka and DJ Andrew are all representing Hong Kong in the comp.

The W Hong Kong is busy spreading the word about Burn Lab across our city to ensure that our host of local talent doesn’t get overlooked. So whether you’re simply interested in hearing the new DJs on the block or if you think you’ve got what it takes then be sure to enter the competition.

Check out the W Hong Kong’s entrants in action at the Get Wet pool party on Sat August 10. Anna Cummins
