This has been directly taken from Christie Z's post on Geo's Board!!!
VA: As-One (Rockville MD)
TX: Ohm (Albuquerque NM)
NY: Shiftee (New York NY)
CA: Shmeeze (Fountain Valley CA)
but provided the following DJs pick up their own expenses to get themselves to NYC for the battle on August 1st...
I am also inviting all runners up:
VA: Ty Handswell (Cockeysville MD)
TX: Q-Base (San Antonio TX)
NY: Fascinate (Tilton NH)
CA: Mista B (San Francisco CA)
as well as 3rd place in
3rd: Lodus (Pico Rivera CA)
This is not guaranteed to happen in years to come (because God willing, we will one day know qualified promoters in more states to bring the battle to their area) but for this year - I think it will be an exciting battle.
4 out of the East Coast (NYC & VA)
4 out of the South (TX & NOLA)
3 out of the West (CA)
1. increased interest in the battle
2. reps from more states
3. more people attending the US Finals
4. better show at the US Finals
5. interesting array of the top battle DJs in the US for the dvd
I hope you are as excited about this as I am!
I can't wait to see who wins in New Orleans!!!
