To compete in DJ Warz, you must: Be a registered attendee of T-MODE and submit the DJ Warz application form. You will NOT be allowed to participate without meeting the criteria. There are only six (6) DJ Warz slots available. The deadline to enter is December 14, 2014.
Freestyle and your own music is allowed. Japanese and video game music, since T-MODE is an anime and gaming convention after all, is strongly encouraged.
The music should focus on leading into your opponent’s beats as to keep a smooth mix going. Then focus on putting your own personal spin on the mix. Humor or mocking beats are encouraged and acceptable.
DJs are expected to bring their own equipment to battle, such as laptops, mixers, turntables, ect. No equipment will be provided by T-MODE other than the use of the convention’s speakers.
Each DJ will be given 10 minutes to spin. The Music Events Director will use a stopwatch to indicate the end of each round. The clock starts from the beginning of the first beat spun by each competing DJ. Only the Music Events Director will be responsible for tracking time.
Competitors who are rude, abusive or deemed otherwise to display unsuitable behavior by T-MODE will be disqualified from the competition.
These rules are subject to change at any time without prior notice. We will make every effort to inform of any changes as far in advance as possible.
There will only be one winner for each battle. Judging is determined by audience applause and is final. There is no appeal process. Protests of the judging decision are prohibited and will not be accepted regarding any score or result of a decision.
