Mix Factor


The Mix Factor

In August 2011, NZ Rockshop, George FM, Pioneer NZ, 1885 Britomart & High Life Entertainment joined forces to create the first Mix Factor DJ Competition.

George FM listeners were invited to submit a 30 minute DJ mix. These were then listened to by a panel of judges and 5 finalists were selected to battle it out at the final at 1885 Britomart infront of a crowd.

The winner went on to receive $4000 worth of Pioneer DJ equipment, an slot at High Life Entertainment's NYE Experience 2012 at Matakana, and a set at 1885 Britomart.

The 2011 winner was Ian "Iwan" Wan who rocked the house with his superb mixing styles of party Drum & Bass.
