The Winner: Zac Zacharia

Huge congratulations go to Zac Zacharia house music producer, DJ and award-winning barber shop owner from Adelaide in Australia. We picked Zac's Tech House track "Things You Do" and Mark transformed it into a fully finished ready-to-release track.

The track is now being shopped to labels so Zac could soon be going from barber shop star to Beatport star!

We caught up with Zac over a Zoom call where he listened to the final transformation for the first time!

Coming soon: Watch the transformation
