Submissions closed.....

And the submissions are ready! We had 30 djs enter the fray with their interpretation of using Beethoven's works in a turntablist routine. Some went straight battle style, some went more musical, some went full tech and some just had a good read. Check them out and let us know what you think!
Judges will begin their judging, check back on Wednesday the 15th to find out who made the top 8! Check our SMF Battle TV channel to see all submissions.
