…and we back with 2016 BEATROOT. I would like to say its been over 10 years but it feels like we were doing it for a few years before, fine tuning the BR formula around 2002-2003. Big ups to Mel-Z & Sentric putting me on to the International Producer Association (IPA) battles in NYC, back when they all battled with MPC’s, SP’s, and ASR’s.  July 21st, 2016 is the first prelims.  We have 4 solid dates and working on 2 more before we post up the schedule.  We also have set group of judges that will be judging.  Lastly, our new sponsor Lila Divine Audio Headphones each prelim winner will get a pair.  As always its free and at Easy Music Center
