Producer Bracket and Lineup for Big Beat MKE Announced
It’s (almost) time! Sixteen Milwaukee-based producers of hip hop and electronic music will compete in four rounds of beat battles for the chance to claim the first Big Beat MKE title. Over thirty producers submitted both an original production of their choice, as well as a remix of WebsterX’s “Intuition” in order to be eligible for the competition. Those submissions were reviewed by a selection committee consisting of members of Milwaukee’s music scene, including staff members of 88Nine Radio Milwaukee, WebsterX, Dashcam of Nice FM, and more. The top 16 vote getters were selected for the first round of competition. Battles were determined by a random draw.
