Uppercut is a weekly event that goes down at The Waiting Room, Long Street and the team behind it is hooking up with the crew from Button Bashers and 2BOP to bring you a monthly hip hop Beat Battle, kicking of this Friday, 13th December. The event was created to scope out South Africa’s most talented beat makers and DJs and to build a community in a space where fresh ideas and skills are nourished and honed – the only way to really build the scene.
A sample track was selected and handed out to 4 competing producers who will have one week to flip/rework the track and to play their version at the event. A winner will be decided on the night.
All other producers are also invited to flip the sample used in this week’s competition yourselves and to make your own track, send it to Uppercut / Button Bashers and see how it compares to those of the competitors. If they like it they will invite you to workshops and to battle in future events!
Here is the sample used in this week’s competition:
DJs will be spinning the latest in forward thinking hip hop, glitch, and other future beats.
Battle starts at 12pm sharp.
