Awooga DJ Competition

You wouldn’t expect to find such a high quality dance music collective in Lincoln, considering the scene is usually dominated by tacky “chart and cheese” tunes.

However, Awooga has managed to expose a valuable niche in the underground market.

Started by a group of friends in early 2011, Awooga is an organisation with a difference. Maintaining a strong visual element to go with the nature of the music, the graphic design work would not look out of place at London’s Fabric.

They also support local talent in the area, and this event was a showcase of some of the best new DJs on the scene. The winners were Jack Drake and Adam Bennett, who “showed enthusiasm and bravery with track selection”.

DJs from the city competed against each other at Dogma, for a slot at the next club event. Punters were treated to a variety of diverse sounds, ranging from soulful deep house, ecstatic electro and abrasive dub-step records.

With the success of other nights promoting underground sounds such as Moda (fronted by respected radio 1 DJs and Ibiza playboys Jaymo and Andy George) it seems as though the Lincoln club scene could soon grow to rival that of music metropolitan heavyweights such as Manchester and Birmingham.
