DJ battle

Dave and Busters/Redbull Southern California DJ Mix-Off winner


Wow such an amazing month of October for me. I entered a Dave and Busters/ Redbull Southern California DJ Mix-Off in Irvine, California on October 10th. Dave and Busters, along with Redbull, toured 4 Southern California Dave and Busters locations to find 8 finalist for the grand prize of $5,000.

I made it past the first round in Irvine on August 15th, 2013. Then won the final round in Irvine on October 10th. Pretty awesome experience. All the DJs did a great job on the battle. I actually played my set more for the crowd and the judges rather than playing for the DJs like us DJ usually would do. I think that was the secret to my success on this one.

Being a battle DJ at heart it has been very tough for me to get used to this new form of “DJ battles”. Times have changed, and it’s harder and harder to find a “true” DJ battle these days. I can truly say the DJ art form is evolving and changing right now, so I’m interested and excited to see where it will go.
