Our official competitors were:

  • Flipflop
  • DJ X-Sam

Our official special guest judges for the battle were:

  • Shortkut
  • DJ Revolution
  • DJ Swamp
  • Yogafrog

  • Vinroc

Special guest host MC Fran Boogie

It was an insane head-to-head elimination battle tournament with each round requiring the combatants to throw down 2 sets - 1 prepared vinyl set, and 1 wildcard set in which the judges would choose the battle break to be used (the judges' crate was revealed 48 hours prior, but the vinyl was chosen and revealed at the round, forcing our contestants to be creative on-the-spot!).

Our championship round consisted of Big Once battling DJ Traps. It was hard-fought but after 3 rounds Traps emerged victorious!
