The Beat Melee: Battle #1

The competition was thick, submissions came from all over the planet, and  the decision was very difficult. Every submission had something that was sheer dopeness. We didn’t get any straight garbage.  If you submitted and believe strongly in your product, put it back to the test again.  Next time break out the serious flames this time to leave no doubt in the judges.Below is the tale of the tape for each chosen competitor. Take a listen to each track in it’s entirety to feel the changes in the beat and Decide for yourself who’s beat game needs to go straight to the infirmary based on the following criteria…Creativity: The drum patterns, the instrument flow, the vibe.Originality: Is this different or just the Timberland, Kanye, Neptunes, rip-off!!?Marketability: Can we imagine someone rhyming or singing on this beat?Structure: Changes, bridges, hooks etc..
