A Must Watch- SunSets Sound of the Beach Webisodes





We all remember the Coronoa Sunsets beach festival that took over Hanlan Point Beach on Toronto Island among other world wide party capitals.  Well, this time around they have partnered up with Beatport to bring us a new Web Series SunSets Sound of the Beach. The show follows over 1,800 hopefuls on their journey to becoming the next big global DJ while capturing the sound of the beach. The DJs submitted a mix via Beatport, which led to a second stage of remixing Cajmere’s classic club track ‘Brighter Days’. From there, six finalists were flown to Ibiza where they lived together for a week in a private villa, creating music inspired by the beach and creating an original production that brought the Sound of the Beach to life. Global heavy weight DJs like Annie Mac, Claude VonStroke and Cajmere acted as mentors and judges.




Out of the countless worldwide talent, a Canadian DJ caught the competitions attention and became a finalist on the show. Ryan Chan “DJ 747” was one of those lucky 6 who got to travel to Ibiza and show the level of talent we have living in Canada. The other top six finalists were:Ryan_Chan

-DJ 747, AKA Ryan Chan, from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

-DJ Dohko, AKA Sergio Villanueva, from Mexico City, Mexico

-DJ Robert David, AKA Arpad-Robert David, from Hvidovre, Denmark

-DJ Martin Mars, AKA Mario Martorelli, from Naples, Italy

-DJ Uppfade, AKA Janis Jekabsons, from Riga, Latvia

-DJ Riki Inocente, AKA Richard Inocente, from London, UK

With DJ Uppfade being crowned the first ever winner of Sunsets Sound of the Beach he won the grand prize of  an artist management contract, a guaranteed commercial release, ten prestigious DJ performance spots, $20,000 in gear, four days of studio time at Sonic Vista Studios in Ibiza and more. I am sure we can expect to see big things from all the finalists and we will definitely be keeping an eye on our Canadian finalist DJ 747.
