International Battle Of The Year 2009 – The Soundtrack| October 16th, 2009 | posted in Battle Of The Year
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 2008, 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 deliver the diversity of the competition, the BOTY soundtrack includes various artists and styles: from classical Funk with live instruments to Oldschool Hip Hop with an electronic touch and modern House/Disco grooves.
For the 20th Anniversary of the Event, the Soundtrack features a row of high-profile guests. Highlights of this double album, that also includes a non-stop b-boy mix CD, include Jay-Roc’s collaboration with US-Rap mentor KRS-1, a brandnewsong by Mic Murphy (known from the 80s Funk/Soul band The System) including a feature by Beatstreet legend Grandmaster Mele Mel, and a new production by UK’s Electrofunk guru Paul Hardcastle (Zero One). Dominance Records’ resident DJ Nas’D presents a collaboration with Jay Jaballas and the Dilated Peoples. Furthermore the Soundtrack includes exclusive songs by Bboy Wicket/Renegade Rockers, BOTY-Host Spax, ZPYZ feat. Flying Steps, Super Fresh Power Squad and many more!
The track “Never Let The Rhythm Go” by Mr. Confuse (from the album ‘Do You Realize’) was also released on Goodgrove Records.
