Turntablists take note, A-Trak has announced a new DJ and beat battle competition just for you. Dubbed The Goldie Awards, the contest is launched in partnership between the Canadian DJ, his record label, Fool's Gold and Vice's Thump and Noisey music sites.
Scheduled to take place this September 7th, contestants will be called to the world famous New York venue Brooklyn Steel.
The competition will be split into two categories — DJ Battle and Beat Battle — and each category will choose six contestants from internet submissions. But, should you enter, who will be judging your mad skills? Well, the judges are no slouches — Mannie Fresh, Just Blaze, Mija, Craze, Whooligan, Destructo and Diplo will be making the calls on who makes the cut.
What's in it for the winner? You may well ask — Well, prizes aren't too shoddy either. You'll be playing a DJ slot at the label's annual block party Fool's Gold Day Off, and you'll also have the opportunity to release music via Fool's Gold… there are, of course, a bunch of other prizes, but these seem to be the big motivators!
If you're interested in throwing your hat into the ring, and feel like you can fight off what is sure to be fierce competition you should head over to the Goldie Awards Official Website and fill out your details to enter.
