Empire Media Inc will be hosting Guyana’s premier DJ competition, “Art of War 2019”, in July this year. As we prepare to do so, the organisers said, we have partnered with XL Energy Drink and launched on March 4, 2019, an inaugural DJ battle tournament called “Lock the Scene”.
The objective of this tournament is to bring young and unknown DJs on the dancehall scene. It will run for two months and at the end, the winner will receive $100,000, a spot in “Art of War 2019” and ambassadorship for XL Energy Drink. Since its commencement, the tournament has generated much interest.
Fans came out to Swag City in West Ruimveldt (formerly Ballers Bar) to witness their favourite DJ do battle.
Kicking off the tournament in week one was DJ Derrick of Blazing Fire Sound out of Linden with a victory over DJ Famous of Pier 1 Sound from Georgetown; and DJ Guy from Bartica conquering his opponents DJs Jameel and Hardcore out of Ricochet Sound in Georgetown.
Week 2 saw another Lindener DJ Bandit of Spotlight Sound being triumphant over DJs Hype of Roses International Sound from Georgetown and DJ Chappy out of Bartica vanquishing his contenders DJs Lance and Rich of Dynamite Sound from the West Side.
Up next Monday, DJ Kevin of Royalty Vibes from the West Side will face off against DJs Red Man and Jermaine of TnT Sound; and Shocking Vibes Sound will do battle against Fabulous Sound from the East Coast of Demerara.
The winners of each week will face off against each other and the best two will go to the finals.
The action starts from 22:00h every Mondays at Swag City in West Ruimveldt. Be sure not to miss out on the excitement!
