Alizé Remixed Tour

Alizé is a French, premium fruit liqueur made from a blend of Alizé V.S Cognac and exotic juices. For its 21st birthday celebrations over the last few months the drink has been fronting a national club tour a DJ tour - Alizé Remixed 2008.

Alizé are asking would-be maestros to create a 10 minute mix of their favourite party tracks from the past 21 years and upload them to the contest’s dedicated website. Mixes can include any number of tracks, from hip-hop and soul to garage and reggae, so long as they make a banging party mix, but remember this isn’t a cutting and scratching contest, it’s about creating the ultimate vibe!

There will be a winner for each city who will receive £1000, a case of Alizé and a VIP night out for 43 friends on their Remixed debut. Best of all though is they will get to hit the turntables alongside the likes of legendary DJs including Jazzy Jeff and Grandmaster Flash, plus the competition Ambassadors Steve Sutherland and Shortee Blitz.

Steve Sutherland commented; “Alizé Remixed is an opportunity for great up-and-coming DJs to experience something amazing - to show off their skills and star alongside legendary names like Jazzy Jeff. No egos allowed and good vibes are essential, so if you’ve got the tracks, we’ve got the stage.”

Steve offers his top tips on creating the best banging party mix:
1. Vary up your tracks; don’t have all hip-hop or all 80s groove. Keep it interesting!
2. Be creative. You don’t need to play the whole track, maybe just the best 16 bars or the big hook.
3. Don’t overuse scratching - we want to hear your selections, not your tricks.
4. Choose your playlist carefully. You may love an obscure album track, but if the crowd doesn’t know it, you’ll kill the vibe.
5. Don’t be scared to throw in a surprise to keep everyone on their toes!

Once selected, the Alizé Remixed winners will play at one gig each on the tour which will be hitting 5 cities across the UK including Bristol’s Panache.
