Since the first Battle Of The Year (BOTY) has taken place in 1990, the annual breathtaking competition of international dance formations has become THE world championship of breakdance. In 2007, more than 400 crews with more than 3.000 dancers took part in 26 official elimination contests worldwide to qualify for the final battle in Braunschweig, Germany.
To transport the diversity of the competition, the BOTY soundtrack includes various artists and styles: from classical Funk with live instruments to Oldschool Hiphop with an electronic touch and modern House/Disco grooves.
Highlights on this album include opener “Bboy Rocks” by Australia’s DJ Sing, “Good Times” by Norway’s Esone, DJ Nas’D with a track from his new longplayer “Get Yourself High” (out now on Dominance Records), as well as productions by Brisk Fingaz (producer for german rappers such as Kool Savas, Azad), DJ Derezon (Aggro Berlin) and DJ Tee from Japan.
