Hello dear drum and bass community,
after many experience-rich UTM parties, we are now going to the next step.
Many newcomer DJs have already been able to prove themselves at numerous events.
Now the dancers are also in demand!
@dnbchemnitz and @dnbstep.germany have already set up very successful and exciting DnB step competitions - respect for that!
Now to our event:
On April 24th, 2020 the first UTM-Step-Cup will take place in the chemical factory in Dresden! Here you will dance to different drum & bass styles in short battles.
There will be two categories in which you can prove your skills.
We differentiate between amateurs and experts. The jury will decide who goes into which category based on your application videos. This jury will also evaluate you for the contest.
The process will be as follows:
We divide each category into four groups, each with five participants. In the group phase there are ten battles where the group members compete against each other. The two best in each group advance to the round of 16. From then on, the knockout system continues until we have determined first, second and third place. They receive a trophy or a medal and various prizes in each category.
You can register from January 3rd, 2020 using the registration form on our website. According to the motto: “First come, first served”, 30 places can be allocated. To do this, follow the instructions on the registration form. We will award 10 more places live on January 25th, 2020 at the UTM session - Let It Roll - Winter - Warm Up in the riding hall on the side floor.
Die Anmeldungen werden dann in der Zeit von 23:00 – 01:00 möglich sein.
Dort werden Videos von euch aufgenommen, in denen ihr schon mal zeigen könnt, was ihr drauf habt. Wenn wir dann alle 40 Videos zusammen haben, wird die Jury intern entscheiden, wer in welche Kategorie kommt. Also strengt euch an. 😉
Jede Kategorie wird am Ende 20 Teilnehmer haben.
Übrigens, die Gewinner (3 x erster Platz) aus Hannover können gratis an dem UTM-Step-Cup teilnehmen sowie kostenlos auf die Afterparty!
Dies gilt auch für den Gewinner der nächsten Stepmania am 18.04.2020 in Chemnitz.
At the after-party, none other than Zombie Cats will perform. They are very committed to the step scene, so the choice was clear.
Zombie Cats is a project by Rregula and Dementia, in which the two have constantly reinvented themselves musically over the years. For a long time they walked on deep-bass, classic-stepped neurofunk paths, but then felt musical stagnation and even considered the end of the project. But the fan protest on the one hand and the encouragement of her supporters on the other, made her rise again like Phoenix from the ashtray. Now they are back - again with a different sound, in which they experiment a lot more and give the tracks more air to breathe. From now on they will present them on their own new label, of course called Zombie Cats.
Steppige, pumpende und rollende Tunes liefern euch im Support zur Aftershow die UTM-DJs Metric, Dubtunes, Stepma und Daredub, die sich auf der Bühne ihr Stelldichein geben, während sie die Steps der Tänzerinnen und Tänzer auf dem Floor der Chemiefabrik staunend verfolgen.
Der Contest wird musikalisch begleitet von Trozy und Drumnicorn sowie Qiist, welche allesamt schon DnB-Step-Contest-Erfahrungen gesammelt haben.
In an interview with UKF in 2019, Zombie Cats announced a change that was to be shown for the first time at the Let it Roll Festival. In addition to a musical reorientation, the DNB Step "Team Zombie Cats" formed, consisting of the 2 producers and steppers. LIV, as the first step member, took part in the DNB Step World Championships 2019 and achieved an excellent 3rd place. The team was expanded in December 2019, after the DNB Step Contest Germany in Hanover, to include the steppers "Nice" (World Champion 2019) and "Wanbu" (Vice World Champion 2019). As a sponsor and media partner, Zombie Cats actively supports international and national step events. Through the fusion of music and tapping, the goal of Zombie Cats is to further establish tapping as a sport and lifestyle inside and outside the drum and bass scene.
