Something a bit different to the usual posts on this blog, but this event sounds good so I want to help get the word out. If you're a local-based producer and would like to get involved, leave a comment and I'll put you in touch with the organiser. Here's the details:
Event Title: Battle of the Beats
Date: Thursday May 12th
VERY SPECIAL GUEST JUDGE HIP HOP LEGEND and Local favorites
Venue: The Shelter
Prizes for winner: Cash, Nike shoes from Kin and Interview with Urban Magazine, and DJVIBE.COM
Battle of the Beats will be China's very FIRST producer's competition. With the ever growing amount of great producers in China, and in the spirit of hip hop, it's only right for a battle to take place!
Producers will be given an hour and a half to create a beat with a sample of music that is announced to them just prior to the battle. This is a LIVE competition, nothing will be pre produced or pre planned. Contestants will be judged on simply two things, creativity and head nod factor!
Come down and watch some of the hottest producers around Shanghai battle for cash and prizes as well as a special feature on Urban Magazine and DJVIBE.COM
