Enjoy the mix!
I can do more than just turn a party up. I push myself in every aspect of djing. Call me the Turnt-tablist. I'll battle any and every chance I get. I love competing.
Witness the shift in culture as DJ's step into the public arena and showcase there skills.
DJ'S HAVE A 3-5 MINUTES TO DO WHATEVER THEY WANT TO SHOWCASE THERE SKILLS.
2 TURNTABLES AND A RANE 62 WILL BE AVAILABLE BUT IF YOU WANT TO USE YOUR OWN MIXER OR SETUP YOU HAVE TO BRING IT WITH YOU.
BE PREPARED FOR 2 ROUNDS. THAT MEANS HAVE TWO 3-5 MINUTE ROUTINES PREPARED.
I had a blast competing and I'll continue to work at my craft. My only goal is to better than I was yesterday.
DJ's get ready! The next series of selector DJ Battles is on the way.
Week 1 winner - DJ Eso
Week 2 winner - San Wav
Week 3 winner - DJ Reg P
Week 4 winner - DJ Eso
Cool story what else can you Do? The 1st thing a dj with no skills says is I rock parties 😂😂 like people don't go to clubs to have a good time. There is an art to rocking a party but you gotta have skill. That shit y'all be doing playing songs train wrecking weak ass blends don't fly. Just because you play a Line dance don't mean your rocking a party. 🤣 sucka Djs keep being lame salute the real ones. One another it's a battle poppin next month. I can't wait.

Wednesday Aug 2nd 10pm @ The B-Side. Witness the shift in culture as DJ's step into the public arena and showcase there skills.
DJ's Register to compete today!
Couple a snaps from my recent events + a dope flip I did for Smokescreen. Catch there show on Saturday or catch the album when they drop it.
I only have one reason why I believe Hiphop is the greatest genre of music.
To my knowledge Hiphop is the only genre of music that consistently introduces its listeners to other genres of music and artist.
I'm a DJ so trust me I can post examples for days but I don't really feel like doing that lol. Instead I encourage you to take a look a your favorite songs new or old and see what they sampled via http://www.whosampled.com
As a matter of fact I will drop one gem on y'all from that new Jay Z Album 4:44
As I grow as DJ and meet new people I'm starting to see that everyones idea of what a DJ is isn't the same. I believe that all DJ's should have the ability to showcase. It's important to put back into the culture we all benefit from when we call ourselves DJ's. Its about doing what you do best and showcasing your skills for the world. I think a lot of DJ's are apprehensive about battling because of the stigma attached with losing. Its not 1995 anymore lol it doesn't matter if you win or lose. Its about being authentic. If you call yourself a DJ you should have no problem showcasing after all you do it overnight you have a gig. Just condense your 5 hr set into 5 minutes. Just my opinion though.
On another note my guy WSWDS dropped a nice little quick mix while we kicking it at his crib yesterday. I was like bro you need to quit playing and post that shit. Your welcome world. Enjoy The Pre Heat!
