This past Saturday (December 6th) the much hyped (as you can see from above) first Urban DJ Battle took place inside the “delightful” Stratford Rex, East London.
Unfortunatly though the promoter forgot to invest money in to actually promoting/advertising this event effectively and on the night only 20 people turned up.
Some of the DJ’s who were supposed to be taking part in the battle didn’t even show.
It was a complete and total washout and in less than an hour everyone (including the DJs) had vacated the building.
Lord knows what our American visitors were thinking! (lol).
Anyway Click here to read DJ/entrant Reggie Styles’ review of the night’s events and to read about his impending ‘beef’ with the man that I am secretly in love with – the ‘Big Dawg’ Tim Westwood.
Oh dear.. oh dear…. SMH… LMAO!!!!
Well folks let’s all be thankful for small mercies. At least the night didn’t end in death and destruction.
I was hoping that this event would go well. That it would be a huge success. But what was I thinking? This is the UK where black music events nearly always end in disaster, mainly due to disorganisation, a lack of basic understanding and common sense when it comes to organising an event, and a sick need to cut corners.
Your thoughts please…
