When the Red Bull Music Academy announced their New York series, the event that immediately stood out to DAD was the Culture Clash. We’d seen Culture Clashes that RBMA has held in the past, pitting some of the biggest crews against each other and letting the people decide. It’s broken up into rounds (allowing the crews to showcase the best selections, entertaining sets, and much more), with the crowd deciding ultimately who will win. The New York edition of the Culture Clash takes place at the Roseland Ballroom, is hosted by the wonderful Miss Info (who NY hip-hop heads will know as one of the voices of Hot 97), and features NY dance music crew Trouble & Bass going up against Just Blaze & Young Guru, Que Bajo?!, and Federation Sound. It should be an eclectic night, especially when you have the rounds where each crew has to play music that’s not in their typical rotation.
DAD has five pairs of tickets to give away, and entry is simple: first, you’ll need to be following @DoAndroidsDance on Twitter. Next, using the hashtag #CultureClash, tell DAD why you deserve to win a pair of tickets. The sooner you get your tweet(s) in, the better! Good luck!
