Putting the mix in mixer, Dynamite Entertainment Group and the good guys at the Sound Table will host a DJ competition and a producer showcase, as part of the Global SoundCloud Meet Up day on Thursday.

SoundCloud is a web-based music sharing service that allows users to legally upload tracks, mixes, and mashups to send to friends. The site has garnered lots of support from bedroom DJs and up-and-coming mix masters for its ease-of-use and quality of sound.

The deadline for submitting your work has passed but the event is open to the public (RSVP here), and best of all, has no cover charge.

Check out the group's SoundCloud page for more details and to sample over a dozen mixes already submitted for competition.
