Last week, Colombian DJ and producer Augusto Yepes was named winner of the 2015 Miller SoundClash competition, held in Las Vegas at Marquee Dayclub. The 27-year-old producer faced off against fourteen emerging artists, each getting only 17 minutes to leave an impact on the panel. The grand prize included a deal with Aftercluv Dancelab, granting the winner support in creating a debut music video as the battle champion, A&R services and the opportunity to release a single. “I’m overwhelmed by the feedback from the judges and still buzzing from the Vegas crowd,” said the 27-year-old producer. “I can’t wait to celebrate with all my fellow DJ finalists tonight!” Known for a deep, bass-driven tech house sound that some have likened to Seth Troxler and Jamie Jones, Yepes got his feet wet in the nightlife and music industry as a co-founder of the now internationally recognized party brand Coffee Corp., which sought to create a series of sexy, music-driven events centered around uncovering emerging talent. He’s now become a major name in Latin America’s budding deep house and tech music scene. You can listen to one of his Coffee Corp. sets and watch Yepes’s post-win interview here:
