SXSW 2014 Beat Battle Recap

Last month, we posted video footage of the Toronto vs. Texas Producer Battle, curated by Toronto’s Beat Academy and Houston’s Space City Beat Battle. This time around, The Beat Academy presents it’s own mini-documentary titled, “The Road to SXSW.” The 18-minute recap follows Team Toronto (Rich Kidd, Chef Byer, Nick Nikon, 2oolman, Wondagurl, Superville, DZL and C-Sharp) during their time spent in Austin, Texas on March 13, 2014. Below you can watch all 16 up-and-coming producers compete throughout 5 rounds as Boi-1da’s Team TO took on Symbolyc One’s Team Texas in the first-ever international team beat battle at SXSW 2014.
