BREAKERS: 1 vs 1 battle. You will be battling to the beat makers’ beats and will judge their beats at the end of your rounds.
BEAT MAKERS: Suggested donation of $5 (or free if under 18)
Focus: bring your best BREAK BEATS.
BEAT BATTLE GUIDELINES: Beats should be 2 minutes long. Breakers will battle while your beat is played and judge who advances! Bring 5-10 beats on a LABELED CD (if you’re struggling at least 2 of these should be TRUE break beats suitable for break dancing. Others could be suited for other styles of Hip-Hop dance.)
*** Here are some examples from the breakers if you need inspiration:
Examples: This is a soundcloud example of a break DJ from the east coast who creates his own break remixes. https://soundcloud.com/
This is a classic break. Any bboy/bgirl will get down to this any night of the week. No question. http://youtu.be/
Here’s an original break that’s been sampled a lot in the last several years.https://www.youtube.com/
*****NOT looking for songs remixed with the apache drums. That’s been done to death. We’re also not looking for the electrofunk you hear in movies like “Breakin”–ironically enough, those are more well-suited for popping.******
