DJ Shu, The 2013 Beats By Dre DJ Battle Champ at Rock and Soul

Today, the legendary NYC DJ store, Rock and Soul, teamed up with Beats by Dre and had a DJ battle. The rules were Vinyl only and each DJ had 2 minutes to rock the house. It was mainly guys scratching and juggling  There were a few body tricks and lots of "fresh"s and "ahhh"s. But the overall winner of the competition was NYCelectro.com's own DJ Shu! He won the new Beats By Dre - Mixr, created by David Guetta. To top it off, once the battle was finished, Tony Touch came out and did a special performance.
