Details Announced for A-Trak’s 3rd Annual Goldie Awards DJ & Beat Battle
A-Trak has announced details for his 3rd annual Goldie Awards DJ & Beat Battle. The event, which BPM Supreme is proud to sponsor for the third year running, is set to return to Brooklyn Steel in New York on October 17.
Submissions are now open, and contestants can apply to enter either the DJ Battle or Beat Battle. Entries close on September 1 after which judges will pick eight finalists from each category to fly to Brooklyn to compete in person. Finalists will be announced on September 17.
For those not familiar with the Goldie Awards, it is a unique, two-format competition that crowns one winner in a DJ battle and one in a beat battle. It consists of an online entry period followed by one live final.
Goldie Awards describes the event as a “modern day competition meant to engage the new generation of DJs and producers….” It’s designed for “those who possess the ability to see beyond genre constraints, push boundaries and create incredible music.”
While all prizes are yet to be determined, we know the winning DJ will get the opportunity to perform an opening set at the Fool’s Gold Day Off festival. Meanwhile, the winning producer will get the chance to release a track on Fool’s Gold Records.
As usual, competitors will be judged by a panel of respected artists and producers that has previously included the likes of Diplo, DJ Craze, and Just Blaze. The panel will be revealed on August 13.
The Goldie Awards is a collaborative effort put on by A-Trak, Adidas, TMWRK, and ‘Fool’s Gold. Co-sponsors include BPM Supreme, Roland, Pioneer DJ, Scratch Academy, and more.
