Local producer J. Brookinz plans to host a one-of-a-kind tag team producer/DJ battle at Indy CD and Vinyl on Saturday. And, well, he's a little nervous.
Here's a bit from my interview with Brookinz from this week; read the complete feature on his newest Gateway release here.
"It's going to be really, really different from my regular beat battle," he says, "because it's going to be a tag-team battle. It's going to be one producer, one DJ in three teams. They're going to be playing tracks and mixing tracks together, performing hits for the crowd. We're going to judge them on that in a king of the hill type of thing."
Some producers from his latest Gateway project will be featured at the event.
"Harry Otaku and Mandog are a team; Cool Hand Lex and El Carnicero are a team; Kyle Nagy and DJ TXTBOOK are a team. I don't think anyone's ever done anything like this before. Shout out to Indy CD and Vinyl; they've really been on the team. I'm super nervous about this, because I've never done anything like this, and I've never seen anything like this. It's just an idea."
The battle starts at 5 p.m. at Indy CD and Vinyl.
