Urbanology Mag Presents: Battle of the Beatmakers 2011

June 27, 2011

Over the past few years I’ve seen more and more producer battles take to the stage, and I had the opportunity to have a front row seat to Battle of the Beatmakers last year as one of the house DJs for the night.  The judges are at the top of their game (ie. Boi-1da), and up and comers have the chance to be critiqued by the best.   I was especially thrilled that the champion for 2011 was a female, (shouts out to Neenah Beats), and there were at least 2-3 other female challengers in the competition last year.

Definitely worth checking out if you want to get the inside scoop on who will be running the production game in Canada over the next few years. If you feel you’ve got what it takes to compete, registration is open now – see below for the details…

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Canada’s Official Producer Competition opens!

Toronto, ON –  The 7th Annual Battle of the Beat Makers (BBM) competition has now opened the floodgates for Canadian producers of all ages, who will compete for the crown of “National Champion”. As Canada’s pre-eminent producer event, producers can look forward to an expansion of the traditional one-day event. This year’s monumental event will feature a whole weekend filled with information sharing, workshops, conferences, panels, networking engagements, product demonstrations, beat critiques, contests, film screenings, after parties and of course, the Main Event, “Battle Of The Beat Makers”.

As the only producer related event in Canada responsible for launching the careers of multi-platinum selling and Grammy-award winning producers, BBM is pleased to offer this unique opportunity to another batch of up-and-coming Canadian producers.

“The vision has always been to serve as a launching pad for Canadian producers to catapult their careers on the global stage. Although Boi-1Da and T-Minus are obviously the most successful producers to emerge from BBM, many more are sure to follow their footsteps,” says Clifton Reddick, BBM Founder.
