Saturdays are always the best time to get out and experience a good whiplash before Monday looms in. And just this Saturday, at the Stoned Bar & Grill, AfterParty brings in the most awaited Summer Sky Campus DJ Battle at the wake of June as we usher it in a rave night like no other. Thanks to an amazing venue (Stoned Bar & Grill) with Summer Sky’s Production team, all was a spectacle, to say the least.

Six aspirants were eagerly awaiting the beginning of their exhibition night. Being the natural commodore that AfterParty is, we took this time to get to know each of them. And we pretty much got a good grip of why they’ve chosen to DJ and their inspirations. (That’s another story) and you can read on it here.
Going back to the event proper. Stoned Bar & Grill opened its doors at around 9:30 and people came in to watch and see how our 6 battlers get to fair in their own 15 minute exhibitions.
Starting the round off with a draw lots, the first to perform was Jia (the only female contender) with Ivan, Alvin, Stan, Alfred and Jan completing the roster. They all exhibited skills that is both akin to an open format DJ Battle with a mix of technicality (scratching, cutting, etc.) with their own creative prowess.
