Turntablist prodigy, label owner and producer A-Trak has announced something very exciting, a brand new DJ & Beat-Making competition called The Goldie Awards.
Fool’s Gold‘s head honcho joined forces with TMWRK, THUMP and Noisey to come up with the idea and give a new, advanced and original competition the two thumbs up. The competition aims to reflects the genre-less and limitless nature of music today and allows DJs & Beat-Makers to push past boundaries. Dave East will be hosting the event plus The Goldie Awards will see an impressive judging panel that include bass-heavyweights and DJ’s like Diplo, Mannie Fresh, Mija, Just Blaze, Craze, Destructo and The Whooligan (Soulection). The team will judge 6 DJ’s and 6 producers based on their technical skill/creativity. It all goes down on September 7th and will take place at Brooklyn Steel in NYC.
Applicants can submit videos online today via Instagram and/or YouTube and all you got to do is include the hashtag #GOLDIEAWARDS to follow the trend and potentially be sorted into the Beat Battle or DJ Battle. For More info click here. Check out A-Trak’s promo video on The Goldie Awards below!
