MEADOW Springs father Richard Smith (39) pumped out the beats during his set in the Your Shot DJ competition at The Court in Northbridge.

A wildcard entrant, Smith was one of 400 competitors to be chosen in Australia out of 10,200 registrations.

Smith said it was an amazing opportunity and he would definitely enter again next year.

Your Shot provides a unique opportunity for music-lovers to transform their passion into a career.

Your Shot has launched the careers of world-famous DJs such as Tigerlily, J-Trick and Go Freek.

It was the first time the event had been held in Perth and more than 4000 people attended on the weekend.

Your Shot director Steve Pillemer said the Perth event exceeded all expectations.

“The level of skill and real talent was incredible and the passion for music was totally infectious,” he said.

“One thing is for sure, there will be some successful careers to come from this year.”

Andrew Cortez (DJ Apollo) won the Your Shot 2019 Perth contestant title and Marcus Zschokke (DJ Chemical Slip) won the Wildcard division.
