Beach Club DJ Battle 

Sunday, August 28, at Westport Beach Club.

At the end of the five-week Beach Club DJ Battle, which kicks off Sunday at 10 p.m., the top three finishers earn weekend opening slots at Jilly's, the Grand Emporium and Kabal. The gigs are unpaid, so this contest isn't for established headliners with cushy Saturday-evening club residencies. It's for hungry spinners who want to showcase their skills in front of a packed house because they're confident that spectators will remember their names and seek them out in the future. The competition itself should leave some memorable impressions, with veterans such as Skizm, DJ Gone, Radionic, Schwinn, Mr. Nuro (pictured) and 15 others condensing their best beats into half-hour sets. Stylistically, expect hip-hop, house, break beats, drum 'n' bass, trance, techno, jungle and disco. Judges will use a "technical grading scale" to rank the prospects. Each Sunday-night installment features five fresh faces, with the weekly winners advancing to the September 25 final. For a full lineup, see Phocas.net.
