Tonight marks the seventh year of Milwaukee’s music producer battle and the competition will prove to not only be fierce (these competitors have some pretty solid chops), but completely fun-spirited (audience participation allowed and encouraged). Returning to the Jackalope Lounj, there will be four preliminary battles of the Miltown Beatdown for 2012. The battles start at 10 p.m. each Thursday and run through August 30th.
The thirty-two producers featured for this particular season will run the gamut of electronic dance and hip hop, ending in a throwdown between the best and brightest in September at Moct. Judged by both the audience and a panel of judges, scores are based by audience cheers, sound quality and creativity and tonight’s battle looks to kick things off with an especially exciting start, featuring these competitors:
Reason vs. Beat Houzing Group
Baktrax vs. Madden Miles
Bubba vs. Jazz Ward
Elete Trax vs. DJ Schiro
The Jackalope Loung is located at 343 E. Broadway Street in downtown Milwaukee, inside The Wicked Hop restaurant.
