We hosted our first official IRON DJ match up at The Barbary on Sunday 6/29/14. This month’s secret ingredient was DISTANCE.
After the flip of a coin, DJ Image chose to go first against veteran Iron DJ Flufftronix. The DJs had 15 minutes to compose 30 minute sets with songs that ranged from The Proclaimers ‘I would walk 500 miles” to Nine Inch Nails ‘Closer”.
After a fierce battle, the judges ruled that our first round winner was DJ Image.
HUGE thanks to everyone that came out and helped make Iron DJ season 3 happen this year.
