Announcing the winner of our Bedroom 2 Dancefloor competition!

Today, along with Hard Rock Hotel London, we’re unveiling the victor of our nationwide search to discover Britain’s next big DJ star.

We’re delighted to announce that Connor Scott, from Birmingham, won over the British public in a voting victory – as well as an elite judging panel of music experts – in becoming Britain’s best bedroom DJ.

In a commitment to support budding talent and champion health and wellbeing within music, we launched the national competition, along with Hard Rock Hotel London, to encourage aspiring DJs making beats behind bedroom doors to upload their own music mix to the Bedroom 2 Dancefloor website. The most popular pieces were then judged by an expert panel of electronic aficionados, who then selected the top 5 finalists to be put forward for the people’s choice.

Winning the competition after going head-to-head with five finalists in a public vote, Connor Scott from Birmingham spoke about the inspiration behind his mix:

“Winning the bedroom to dancefloor competition has opened up so many opportunities for me. I’ve always wanted to work in big music events – seeing how a DJ can change the hype of a crowd and the whole experience of an event or even a night out, made realise that is what I wanted to be. Playing to different crowds, meeting new people, travelling and being able to work with and make music is what I love most.

Music is very important to me, and Nordoff Robbins are a charity that I think is doing amazing work. Music has had a massive benefit on my own mental health and I’ve seen how it can give someone who maybe can’t speak or communicate easily, an outlet”

Connor was crowned champion from the five finalists who were judged and selected by an expert panel of electronic dance music’s (EDM) best in the business. The judges included world-famous DJs and industry experts across club land, labels, music schools, equipment and media. The esteemed panel of experts included:

The competition unveils our new long-term partnership with Hard Rock Hotel London. Nordoff Robbins is the hotel’s official charity partner through Hard Rock’s charitable foundation, Hard Rock Heals, with guests and locals alike offered the chance to support Nordoff Robbins through a variety of fundraising initiatives within the hotel.

Congratulations to Connor on his well-deserved victory and thank you to all the talented DJs that entered the competition. We would also like to thank our expert panel of judges for giving their time and expertise to support the competition, and to Hard Rock Hotel London, Soho Radio, Native Instruments and Point Blank Music School for generously donating the incredible prizes!
