Athleisure - - The Art Of The Snack - PHO­TOG­RA­PHY PAUL FARKAS

Septem­ber marked the first an­nual Goldie Awards DJ and Beats Bat­tle in Brook­lyn, NY. Pre­sented by Fool's Gold, Thump, Noisey, TMWRK, and Ser­ato - the night fea­tured an ar­ray of promis­ing beats and DJ artists from around the globe. The star-stud­ded judges panel was stacked with Di­plo, Just Blaze, DJ Craze, Destructo, Mija, The Whooli­gan and Man­nie Fresh, who rooted on the artists with awe and strong com­mu­nity vibe. Dave East joined in with host­ing du­ties for the evening break­ing up the show with light and crisp ban­ter, al­ways with a brew in hand.

The packed house cheered and bopped to beats, scratches and remixes as they filled the air for each bat­tle. The bat­tles were a good for­mula and the pulse was fresh through the show. The few mo­ments of down­time be­tween sets al­lowed for some drink breaks, au­di­ble di­ges­tion, and IG mo­ments.

A-Trak is right, all of the artists are win­ners in gain­ing some great ex­po­sure with the event. You never know who is watch­ing and what next lies in store. Congrats to all artists that per­formed. The Beat Bat­tle con­tes­tants were: Brace, City the Beat­mas­ter, Fresh Kils, HOLLY, MSCLS, R!OT, STFU, and Young Sidechain. The DJ Bat­tle con­tes­tants were: John Beez, K-Swizz, Kayper, Miles Me­d­ina, Rafik, Rocket Jack­son, Vekked, and Yuto.

The Goldie Awards bring good recog­ni­tion and fla­vor to the in­dus­try truly cut­ting across gen­res. It is highly rec­om­mended for fans of var­i­ous mu­si­cal tastes. DJ’s don’t sleep on this – make sure you have your short demo sub­mis­sions hash­tagged and ready for next time.
