High in the mountains of ancient Japan, where tribes still rule the land, exists a place more sacred than any other. This place is said to be the centre of the universe, and the epicentre of all that has a beat. In the past centuries, many wars have been waged over this holy area, but until recently all had been peaceful.
Now there are rumours of a new battle brewing.
Two tribes, Miro from the North, and Zukuto from the South, have each staked a claim for ownership of this rhythmical land and are prepared to fight to the death. Twelve DJing warriors, six from each tribe, have been selected for their strength, ability in battle and musical dominance over their selected genre.
Years of training have brought them to this point, where the DJ warrior with the superior skill will win the greatest honour for their tribe: endless musical riches and knowledge from this mystical region.
High in the Shiduku Mountains, the battle for Bakura begins…

The evening will be hosted by Red Moon Creations, a newly formed company who wish to bring back the concept of what a “night on the town” used to be about – good quality music through strength and diversity; fun socialising and an exciting festive atmosphere.
