DJ Nasty at the 2016 Batalla de Dominio / Facebook
Chile’s ninth annual Batalla de Dominio DJ competition is set to take place this Saturday, Dec. 16 at Espacio Diana in Santiago. The battle is co-sponsored by DJcity, Serato, Denon DJ, and Promusic to name a few.
Competitors from around the country will vie for titles in three categories: technical, advanced scratch, and intermediate scratch. They’ll be judged on originality, technique, structure, style, and musicality. The winners of the 2016 battle were Loudcut (technical), Redmist (advanced), and Raul Rulz (intermediate).
The event will also feature a showcase by Chilean turntablist crew, Modus Operandi.
Chile has produced some world-class turntablists as of late. In 2015, DJ Byte took home the prominent Red Bull 3Style World Championship. And following in his footsteps is Diego Zapata, the reigning two-time 3Style Chile champion.
