    Hey guys, so a spot opened up on our beat battle happening on Sydney.
    Figured I should let you guys know and hopefully get you to join.



    Lots of prizes and connections.
    also the opportunity to meet a fellow Illmuzik Member.

    Hope this is okay @Fade?
    If not, Just delete it.

    Thanks :D

    This is something I would to do! Unfortunately the scene here sucks and there's only a couple of people near me on ILL. If anyone on here wants to do something like this (as an IllMuzik gathering), let me know!

    @Bugsy Not to hijack your thread, just had to mention it. Continue...

    @dBtheProducer Try reaching out to dudes you kick it with. its pretty much busking at this point. its a great way to promote and network with other artists.

    @Fade - It's your site :up2:
    Maybe do it with one of your mates, for now like a once a month thing. I'm pretty sure that you'll catch ears here and there.
