rolling out and Smirnoff hosted the inaugural “Salute to Atlanta’s Dopest DJs Awards and DJ Battle” on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 at Sugar Hill in Atlanta’s Buckhead community. The DJ music competition presented an opportunity to recognize the city’s leading DJs deemed key influencers in the nightlife culture.

“A herd of ready-to-battle deejays, along with music aficionados, packed out the cavernous club in a scene reminiscent of Smirnoff’s ‘Master of the Mix’ as the city’s most renowned turntable titans tussled on wax to determine who reigned supreme. Before the evening popped off, many of the DJs expressed gratitude because of the rarity that such a forum and platform was provided for them to showcase their skills and shine in an audience’s adulation,” offers Jana Hicks, rolling out’s editor-in-chief.

Award winners included DJ Baby Yu, DJ Jaycee, DJ Tayroc, DJ Tehnology, DJ Mami Chula, DJ Kemit, DJ Cowboy, DJ Nabs, DJ MLK, DJ Spinz (HoodRich DJs), DJ Ant Love, DJ Quest (Hittmenn DJs) and DJ Jaycee nabbed the “DJ Battle Award.”

Gift bags were provided by Akoo Clothing.
