Derek Linzy takes home the title of Beat Battle Champion!

Last Thursday evening the Early Fall 2011 Battle of the Beats went down in the GreenRoom.  Ten of IPR’s most talented beatmaker’s and producer’s competed against each other with the hope of taking home the title of champion.   Hosting the event was IPR Student Services Coordinator, Joe Sadowski, and industry professionals Idara (Slow Spokes), Antonio Rosario (Orikal Uno), and Paul Znasko (DJ Blaze One) headed up the judging panel.  The event was packed; with 75+ spectators in attendance to watch the battle.  Love and laughs were shared back and forth with this very interactive crowd and the competition was stiff leaving the judges to call some very close match-ups.  All and all, everyone really brought their A game to the battle! However, at the end of the night it was Derek Linzy aka DLinz that was left victorious.  Coming in 2nd place was Frank Bibiloni followed by Justin Henderson in 3rd.  For 1st place Derek Linzy won a Akai MPK Mini Midi Controller and Frank took home a mic stand, pop filter and XLR cable.


Congratulations Derek!
