It is set to be an electrifying gathering of superstar DJs in the making, celebrities and a stirring crowd of partygoers out to show their support!
How it all started
Originating from Orlando, Florida, the Pioneer Digital DJ Battle was initiated by a group of party-crazy, audio-savvy Pioneer ProDJ executives and soon grew to become a hugely anticipated event all over the world. The battle first made its way to Malaysian shores back in 2003 and has been a prominent stage for uncovering many new talents in the local DJ scene. Famous past winners include names like DJ Fuzz, DJ Victor G, DJ Goldfish, DJ Blink and more. Today, the event is one of Malaysia’s biggest DJ competitions and continues to attract a large following of seasoned audiophiles, aspiring DJs, clubbers and party-goers.
A whole new level of excitement
Every year, the field of competition gets much tougher as the level of contestants increases and prizes get bigger and better. This year, the judges received an overwhelming number of submissions with many entries from extremely talented participants. It was indeed a tough selection process, but one that undoubtedly sets the stage for a mind-blowing finale of incredible spinning skills.
The 2013 Pionner Digital DJ Battle is set to be a star-studded affair, with celebrity judges such as DJ Victor G, DJ Eugene, DJ Anowl and DJ E.T alongside Mr Raymond Lee, General Manager of Pioneer Malaysia. The rules of the battle are simple: From the 15 semi-finalists, only top 5 finalists will be selected to enter the Grand Final. Each finalist will get 20 minutes to showcase their talents and be judged based on creativity in using Pioneer equipment, song selections, mixing & scratching skills, techniques, audience response and overall showmanship. This year finalist is A-Marq, DJ Aims, DJ Alien a.ka. BB, DJ Kev Kenji, George Gan and in a rousing finale, last year’s champion Ben Cracko will defend against the champion for the right to enter the Pioneer Digital DJ Battle Asian Championship 2014 – talk about a clash of the titans!
