Launched in collaboration with Beatport in April earlier this year, the competition provides an opportunity for aspiring DJ talent to supercharge their career. Winners, Us Two, will become part of the ANTS family which is celebrating a decade of parties this summer. Along with the opportunity to perform at the venue, the pair will receive career mentorship to nurture their artistic development, a production masterclass with an ANTS resident DJ, and an array of DJ essentials, courtesy of Beatport and Pioneer.


Apparently over 1000 entries were judged by a panel of DJs and industry figures, including ANTS residents Andrea Oliva, Chelina Manuhutu, SYREETA, Francisco Allendes and Nic Fanciulli, along with Yann Pissenem, (CEO & Founder of The Night League, Ushuaïa, Hï Ibiza, & ANTS), Leslee Clarke (Booking Manager, The Night League, Ushuaïa & Hï Ibiza), and Itziar Gonzalez (ANTS Brand Manager).


Us Two’s mix of 100% original productions and future-facing underground sound, caught the ears of the judging panel, who deemed it perfect for the dancefloor. Take a listen to their winning mix: Us Two ANTS: NEXT GEN DJ Mix


Us Two: "We’ve been going to Ushuaia Ibiza and ANTS for over 10 years, so for us to now be playing there is crazy. The party has had a huge influence on us and has helped create our sound, so we’re super excited for this next chapter with the colony!"


Andrea Oliva: “Huge congratulations to Us Two. I hope this is going to be a career-changing moment for the guys and I'm looking forward to watching them perform on the main stage at Ushuaïa Ibiza this summer.”


SYREET:It's amazing to see exciting upcoming talent get a platform with an institution like ANTS. The duo had exactly the right ANTS groove in their mix, and it was incredible to see it made up solely of their original productions as well!”


Yann Pissenem: “Since the beginning, ANTS has always been about our community of artists, DJs, workers and clubbers who share a passion for house and techno. ANTS Next Gen has given us a vehicle to further support the scene, and we’re delighted to welcome Us Two to the ANTS family and excited to see where this journey takes them.”
