U-MAX in collaboration with PYRO Music is organizing a mixtape competition available to all talented DJs based in China. The mix is permitted to be up to 60 minutes long to showcase their mixing skills and song taste. U-MAX will choose their favorite DJ mixtape at the end of the month of May and reward them with a warm up set at their venue in June for the Top 100 Firebeatz show!

This is a golden opportunity for all aspiring DJs striving to get a taste or land an additional booking at Nannings hottest and newest venues. In addition, this will be a paid booking totalling 3,000 RMB, airfare, and hotel costs paid in full in order to perform on the designated night [if not based in Nanning].

How To Submit

  1. Log into your PYRO DJ account (If you are only a listener, you will need to upgrade to a DJ account)
  2. Click the UPLOAD tab at the top and drag in your mix

                   3. Select the mixtape category                    4. Fill in information and artwork correctly, Title the mixtape: “U-MAX Mixtape” at Venue: U-MAX                    5. Type in the tag section “Umaxfirebeatz” **                    6. Select the UGC option for User Generated Content. Official is for those big record labels that use PYRO 😉                    7. SAVE

** Steps 4&5 are very important in order to find your mix and add it to the official playlist. PYROMAN will be adding all submissions to his “U-MAX MIXTAPES” playlist, you can check to make sure yours is on easily by just looking at your mix page or looking at his playlist. If your mix is not there then fix your tag or message him your mix on the PYRO platform only.


60 mins

Music Choice

Your preference, but the DJs who want to be selected to perform at either of the participating venues will have to be aligned to their music tastes. (TIP: U-Max Music Taste is geared towards EDM, Future & Bass House)


Votes will be casted in the form of “Likes” and comments, so the more activity your mix has the higher your mix will rise above. All submitted mixtapes must have at least 50 likes to be considered and entered for review.

TIP: It is wise to share your mixtape on all socials and ask friends and family to cast their votes by both liking AND commenting on your mixtapes for support!

Grand Prize (1)

A proper booking gig at U-MAX Nightclub. A paid DJ fee totalling 3,000 yuan. Hotel and flights paid in full [if traveling from outside of Nanning].

Due Dates

All submissions must be uploaded onto PYRO Music by the 20th of May. Voting will be valid at the moment you upload until when we choose the winners on May 30th. (TIP: The sooner you upload the more time you have to obtain votes!)

Show times

The DJ of the winning mixtape will open up for FIREBEATZ at U-MAX on June 3rd!

That’s all!

Get mixing and Good Luck PYRO DJs!
