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 2006, 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 Hip Hop with an electronic touch and modern House/Disco grooves.
Highlights on this album include Jay-Roc’s opener “Who” (taken from his debute album release “The B-Boy Hustle Album” – out now on Dominance as well), a stand out cover version of the alltime breakdance classic “The Mexican” (Babe Ruth, 1972) by DJ Hype, songs by Brisk Fingaz (producer for german rappers such as Kool Savas, Azad) and a member of the Jazzanova team – Sygaire, as well as the electrified contributions by the Dominance Records residents Dominance Crushing Crew and Dagobert.
Breakout crew contribute their track ‘The Showdown’ produced by Mr. Confuse, Info & Kova (more…)
