Jeremy Marshall Your Shot Brisbane 2015 Winner

one of the below international events: Snowbombing (Austria) The BPM Festival (Mexico) THE GROOVE CRUISE (Miami) Vh1 Supersonic (India) Chasing Summer Music Festival (Canada) or Your Paradise (Fiji) Here’s what Jeremy had to say about his ‘Your Shot’ experience: “What a crazy ride. From standing in line outside Birdees early on a Sunday morning, mentally preparing for the interview just hoping to be given a chance, to receiving the text message saying “You’re in!” To the meetings, the training, selling tickets, the set-times being released, playing my first set, getting into the AGWA and Alize buckets, watching Taylor’s set, hearing my name read out, playing my final set and now sitting here as the winner of YOUR SHOT Brisbane and owner of some truly amazing memories. It has been an absolute rollercoaster of nerves, anticipation, anxiety, satisfaction, confusion, frustration, relaxation and ultimately…fun! It wasn’t all smooth sailing, I almost bailed before the interview and the first training was so frustrating that I thought I’d might as well just give it up.  But I quickly learned to love the training, and that became the highlight of my week.  Thanks to the people I met and made friends with.  Every week I would leave home early and sit in a café near the Academy with a coffee and my laptop and imagine that was my real life, travelling the world, sitting in random cafe’s making tunes and preparing a set for a gig that night.  For a while each Saturday I was already a DJ and it felt great. My love of YOUR SHOT started last year when I flew up from Tassie to watch my mate play and smash his first ever set.  The moment I saw him up on stage I knew that it was something I needed to experience myself.  I packed my gear up and came to Brisbane always with YOUR SHOT in the back of my mind.  Watching the final battle last year I remember thinking, hoping, wondering if maybe I could be up there at some point, crazy.  Hopefully there was someone out there in the crowd on Sunday thinking the same thing, to whoever you are, apply next year so we can find out.  The feeling of being up on stage was everything I ever imagined, to anybody who has ever sat up in bed at night, headphones in, eyes closed and imagined how that song would sound live with you at the helm, just trust me, it’s amazing.  By far the best part of the entire experience was the people I have met.  Being around a place where everybody shares the same passion as you is incredible, but I feel like with dance music we have something special.  Seeing a group of total strangers brought together by grooving to the same beats, that’s what it’s all about to me. Thanks so much to everyone involved in organising and everyone who supported me, made a guy’s dream come true.” Congratulations also goes to the ‘Your Shot 2015,’ Brisbane Wild Card winner: Joshua Quinn “Your Shot definitely is a once in a lifetime opportunity and is one I’ll definitely remember because it gave me the chance to play in front of a massive audience and to make people dance, which I love doing.  I’m so humbled to be a part of Your Shot because already, so many pathways have opened up for myself and my DJ’ing career and I can’t wait for what the future holds.  One great thing about Your Shot is all the amazing people you meet, they have become life long friends and it honestly makes the experience ten times better.” Your Shot 2015 Sydney & Melbourne Event Dates: August 1 & 2 – Greenwood Hotel, Sydney August 15 & 16 – Royal Melbourne Hotel, Melbourne **Entries are now open for the Your Shot & ALCATEL ONETOUCH SoundCloud DJ mix competition, see below for more details.  Anyone can enter!!**]]>
