A Sheffield teenager was chosen from 4,000 applicants to score a three-year DJ contract playing at clubs in Ibiza.

Mitch Morton, aged 19, won first prize in a global competition designed to spot emerging talent and give up-and-coming electronic music artists a platform to be seen and heard.

Mitch will travel to the Balearic island this summer to begin his DJ management contract which will see him play at some of the biggest clubs in the party hotspot.

“I am thrilled to have been given this opportunity to prove myself,” said Mitch, from Swallownest.

“The three-year contract will give me access to the electronic music world, playing at a huge choice of clubs and venues, and will run alongside my current music tech studies, progressing me even more.”

Mitch is a former UTC Sheffield City Centre campus students and is currently studying for a music technology degree in Leeds. His ambition is to become a music producer. For the competition - organised by management company Emerging Ibiza - he had to submit a DJ mix and was one of two competition winners. He also won the chance to play a set at Space Ibiza.

Brigidin Crowther, Assistant Principal a UTC Sheffield City Centre campus, said: “Mitch showed his talent for music and mixing in his time with us and we are truly thrilled with his success. We expect global DJ domination to follow!”
