The 2008 GONG DJ Battle NYC Heat


The most twisted national DJ battle ever concocted is now in it’s third year!
In 2006, weary of the corporate competitions the DJ battle scene had to offer, 1995 DMC World Champ, Roc Raida didn’t complain like some namby-pamby.
He’s a man! He made up his own battle!

Roc Raida’s Gong DJ Battle is so maniacal, so exacting, that only the most bravehearted of DJs will enter. It’s raw head to head battle action combined with pure hilarity.

Not only does Raida invite the most battle scarred DJ alumni to man the gong as judges, competitors are subjected to the ranting and inside jokes of Lord Sear; instigation from Lord Finesse; rumpus making by hype man DJ Fat Fingaz plus DJ Boogie Blind chiming in with timely samples to further add to the ruckus.

You never know who will show up and what will go down at a Gong DJ Battle! Don’t miss it!

Grand Master Roc Raida’s Gong DJ Battle will kick off the 2008 DJ Battle season at 9:30 pm on May 14th at the Knitting Factory 74 Leonard St. New York City with hosts: Lord Finesse and Lord Sear. Judges include DJ Steve Dee and DJ Esquire. Music by DJ Boogie Blind. Special guest performance by Joell Ortiz. The winner/s from this battle will advance to The 2008 Gong DJ Finals on October 22, 2008 at The Knitting Factory NYC.

From Roc Raida to YOU!:

Once again the realest DJ battle ever is back: The 2008 Gong DJ Battle NYC heat! NOW’s the time to show everybody what you been working on: what new juggles you have, what new scratches you can do. Don’t worry about the gong. It doesn’t hit itself, just don’t be wack and you’ll be fine. Just get up there and give it all you got. This year on the judging panel we have Steve Dee, DJ Esquire and a few others. All you have to do to enter is show up the day off the battle at 9:30 to sign up. Have your records, needles and slipmats ready and bring your A game to the tables. That’s it! I hope to see you all there. Not just in the crowd but in the actual battle.”

Peace
Grand Master Roc Raida
