Elementz UK are looking for the next big B-Boy / B-Girl acts for a battle competition at the launch of our new Elementz club night which takes place at Rhythm Factory in Whitechapel Road, London on Thursday 26th April.

A full section of the night is also being given over to live graffiti, open mic, and a b-boy / b-girl battle with a cash prize on offer. This is being hosted by End of the Weak / Speakers Corner’s DJ Snuff assisted by DJ Johny Garcia.

The UK ‘s leading online Hip Hop Magazine – The Hip Hop Chronicle – will be filming the event exclusively for future broadcast and will include footage of live performances and interviews with all of those involved on the night.

We are looking for 7 more successful entrants to take part in the battle competition on the night and get the opportunity to win the cash prize, be featured by The Hip Hop Chronicle and be crowned Elementz Champion at the club’s first event.

Its easy to enter:

All you need to do is the following :

1) Send either an existing video link, or the link to a newly recorded short video of you performing

You can do that in 3 ways

3) The 10 entrants with the most “likes” on their own Youtube or Vimeo video will be shortlisted – so make sure you have your people drop by and register their “vote”! For those using an older existing video, we will take a note of your number of likes at the time of submission, so only “votes” registered after submission will be counted.

The 7 successful entrants from that shortlist will be decided upon by our judging panel based purely on the skills on display.

URBANELITE & BLITZ UK PROMOTIONS PRESENTS “ELEMENTZ”
(in association with The Hip Hop Chronicle)

ELEMENTZ is a new club night celebrating the traditional elements of hip hop – deejaying & turntablism, MCs, graffiti, b-boys & b-girls, open mic, beatboxing – all knowledge under one roof.

Planned as a quarterly event taking place throughout the year, the launch night takes place at Rhythm Factory, London on Thursday 26th April 2012.

Each event will host some of the biggest established names on the scene, while also showcasing new emerging talent and representing hip hop culture in all its forms.

Since the early days of the block parties in New York’s Bronx, hip hop has become a global phenomenon. A culture which has developed over the years representing all people irrespective of ethnic background, nationality, gender or religion. While Hip Hop Music has gone on to become a multi billion selling industry over the years, and has fragmented into various genres, the real spirit of hip hop culture remains within the various elements, practiced by those with an understanding of its principles.

The events will reflect the true meaning of hip hop and takes it back to its roots – at its best live with all elements in full effect

Resident DJ is London’s “1st Lady of Hip Hop” Sarah Love, recognized from her days performing at the city’s renowned Kung Fu events through to her time presenting for MTV Base, BBC 1Xtra and being the only female dj to be nominated twice as “Best DJ” for a MOBO award.

The events are in association with leading online media outlet The Hip Hop Chronicle. While covering the major stories from the UK and overseas, HHC have provided exclusive footage broadcast on BET, MTV and many others. HHC will film performances and interviews to be broadcast online in the weeks following each event.
