16year old KAYLA G from Brooklyn USA scoops the award.

Tiger Records mix contest winnerEarlier this year Sherkhan, the French producer from Tiger Records based in Kingston, set a mix contest to see who could come up with the best take on his latest riddim the Electricity Riddim.

Once the closing date of the compotion was reached the three judges DJ FLASH (TRINITY), ELMAR (SENTINEL) and CROSSFIRE (UNITY) sifted through the numerous entries looking for the most original and interesting mixes that had made good use of samples with meaning / messages etc, scratching, studdar effects and just about anything else that they had wanted to use to grab their attention. In the end the vote was unanimous with a young 16year old lady from Brooklyn, New York KAYLA G impressing the judges the most.
