2012’s DJ Battle: Round #1


Last Friday, January 20th, we held our first ever DJ Battle!!   DJ Steez and grrrilla beats grappled it out in the musical ring, matching beats and wits with song pairs to create our dance mix for the evening.  There was a clear winner:  THE DANCERS! as we all rocked, shuffled and displayed the best of our fancy footwork to the neverending volley of hits.


How did DJ Steez and grrrilla beats make their battling playlist?  DJ Steez explained to me that together the two women created eight general musical categories: oldies, booty songs, guitar rock, seventies, eighties, current, hip-hop, and nineties.  Then each DJ picked a song to fit the category.  After the two women submitted their selections, Steez collated them, sometimes flipping the pairs in order to keep too many fast songs or slow songs from clumping together.  DJ Steez explained further that they changed the order of the categories in order to accommodate a warm-up song as the first entry and a cool-down song as the closer.  Luckily, they had no duplicates.  The final playlist is a KNOCKOUT:

I think DJ Prisoner is on lady on the left–just sayin’

What categories and songs would you chose for a DJ battle?  The next bout: DJ Prisoner Vs. The Den Mother.  I don’t know when it is yet, but it is coming soon to a dance floor near you!  The Marquess of Queensberry rules apply!  You don’t want to miss this.


Our next dance parties are Friday, February 3rd at 7:30pm and again on Sunday, February 5th at 4pm –That’s SUPERBOWL SUNDAY!  Lots of opportunities to shake it like a polaroid picture.


Once is never enough…enjoy!
