Kal sweeps DJ field

Forget about learning from the experienced DJs on show. 17-year-old Khalile “DJ Kal” Sutherland whipped them all good and proper last week at the finals of the Heineken Green Synergy DJ competition.{{more}}

The baby-faced assassin told reporters in an earlier interview that he was just glad to be among the five other finalists competing for the $5,000 first prize, and the chance to compete at the regional finals in Trinidad tomorrow, Saturday, September 8.

But last Saturday, September 01, at the Aquatic Club at Villa, the second year Community College student mixed his tunes, did his tricks, had the audience pumped and left the other Djs admiring “The One!”.

A large crowd packed Aquatic Club, and all admired the young DJ when he beat the impressive cast, which included defending champion DJ Digital and former Caribbean champion, the old school veteran, DJ Ice Kid.

Speaking to SEARCHLIGHT after the competition, DJ Kal said that he felt honoured to have won, and that it was a reward for the hard work that he put into his craft.

The night’s event also included a “Hot Wok” dance competition, which left the audience, mainly the men, gasping for breath, and pressing to the edge of the stage for an advantageous view of the girls’ “dancing moves”. (KJ)
