Seaford College pupil wins top DJ spot at Wakestock

THE musical talents of Seaford College pupil Joe Corti are about to get a much wider audience.

For 16-year-old Joe has beaten thousands of hopeful youngsters from around the country to win his first major chance in the music business.

His winning prize sees him playing on stage at the Wakestock Festival in two weeks’ time and also gets him recording time in a studio to put together his first tracks.

Joe’s big break came when he answered the call from Wakestock, Europe’s largest wakeboard music festival which will see the world’s best wakeboarders, bands and DJs gathering on the sandy beaches lining Cardigan Bay for three days next month.

Organisers were searching for top new DJ talent to join in the bill at Wakestock taking place from July 12-14.

Joe started out on his musical producer and DJ career at an early age.

At the beginning he set out experimenting with electronic music production.

At the moment he is in the process of creating his first track.

Currently still in his final year of education at Seaford College, he is completing his studies in music and drumming and getting ready for a musical future.

Joe’s mix’s have a progressive electro house feel – he has taken inspiration from a range of artists including the likes of Mark Knight, Fedde Le Grand 
and Hardwell.

Starting his DJ career at a New Year’s Eve house party where he played a 90-minute set, he is now about to enter a whole new chapter of his life opening the South Stage at the Wakestock Festival on Friday, July 12.

After finishing school at Seaford he is planning to go on and study at London’s finest Subbass DJ academy in the summer.
