"Tough trying to chip it all down, I had to keep going back and comparing and sometimes it came down to whether or not someone made a proper ending to their set or not.. stuff like that. I focused on Variation, Flow, Originality, Technique. Sometimes things as simple as using different samples could help edge it between 2 vids I had next to each other. Perly/Nelson X was hard to choose, but in the end Nelson kept it a bit tighter and cleaner."
