Grand Master Roc Raida in association with Rane and Serato presents

2009 GONG DJ BATTLE: New York

The most twisted DJ battle ever concocted!
In the spirit of America’s favorite TV talent show from the 1970s, “The Gong Show”, Roc Raida’s Gong DJ Battles feature top battle DJs going head to head on the wheels of steel in front of expert judges…and a gong. That’s right, anyone caught slippin’ in skills, gets GONGED and has to stop battling immediately. The last DJ standing wins the title, the prizes and international renown for being UNGONGABLE! Be there on May 28th for comedy + drama + turntablism!

“Once again the realest DJ battle ever is back!
NOW’s the time to show everybody what you been working on: what new juggles you have, what new scratches you can do. Don’t worry about the gong. It doesn’t hit itself, just don’t be wack and you’ll be fine. Just get up there and give it all you got. Have your records, needles and slipmats ready and bring your A-game to the tables. That’s it! I hope to see you all there. Peace!” — Grand Master Roc Raida
