Friendly rivalries have cropped up on the local hip-hop scene because of this ongoing battle of the beats. Producers audition for slots and go head to head in successive rounds to see who has the hottest drums, bass lines and sample manipulation. The panel of judges and featured performers in between rounds are some of Washington's most diligent subterranean hip-hop acts, including Ardamus, Educated Consumers, Kaimbr and Kokayi of Opus Akoben. A note to aspiring MCs: you need to make the rounds here if you just haven't been able to find the right musical backdrop for the contents of your rhyme book.
