In 1968, Andy Warhol proclaimed "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes". Here at Cable HQ, we applaud the modern world's appetite for discovering "the next big thing", so we thought we'd put something to the test.
All you Cable faithful sent in your tracks, mixes, and bars by the hundreds. From this we whittled it down to just 4 lucky entrants, who got to come down and play in our main room and see what a real system is like. We covered all bases, there were 2 duo's who played House, 1 representing Drum and Bass and 1 representing Dubstep.
And they all absolutely smashed.. check them all out for yourselves!
