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 2 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”

 

Bedroom 2 Dancefloor 2019 is now closed! Thanks for all those who took part and voted!
