NEW YORK CITY:
Join MissInfo.TV at the First Ever RBMA Culture Clash in NYC. The legendary “sound clash” style battle between four DJ crews is happening tomorrow night at the Roseland Ballroom, and we’re giving away tickets to some of our readers : )
Just email us right now at MissInfo@MissInfo.TV with your name and email address. We’ll choose the winners and tell you where to pick up your pair of tickets.
There are four rounds, each crew has to bring their own sound system, plan their own stage show, and bring their own special guests. NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO PLAY A SONG THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN PLAYED. And the last round is all dubplates, aka remixes or original songs.
UPATE: The contest is closed! But you can still buy tickets for tomorrow’s battle at ticketmaster or at the door.
Miss Info: I’m super hype to host this tomorrow! This is a legendary part of the annual Red Bull Music Academy program, and this year, the bragging right are up for grabs between our hip hop legends Just Blaze and Guru, vs. Max Glazer and the whole Federation Sound dancehall crew, vs. Brooklyn’s heavy bass kings Trouble and Bass, and the tropical Latin bass crew Que Bajo! It’s not just about who is the most famous here or who has the hits because each crew has to switch music genre in the 3rd round! And everyone gets to bring guest performers and talk major trash, lol.
In the past, contestants like Diplo and Major Lazar, Soul II Soul, Tricky, and more have gotten into heated debates…and there are very subversive tactics used by the crews to trip each other up. For example, Diplo’s opponent found out that he planned to bring Usher onstage to perform “Climax” so they played the song first…forcing Diplo to produce a special reggae-version of “Climax” ten minutes before he and Usher had to perform it.
If you don’t win tickets, you can buy them at ticketmaster or at the door, but I’m definitely trying to add as many of you guys to the guest list so enter to win now!
Honestly…I’m hoping that this ends up being the DJ version of this epic brawl….
