Name This Bar on Oxford Street kicked off the first of a series of Wax Wars turntablist battles last Thursday.

For those who missed the event, worry not – there will be eight live Wax Wars events taking place weekly on Thursday nights running from 8pm till midnight. Each week’s event will feature DJ sets from The Crown Street Cut Collective before the battle rounds begin, and local street artists will entertain patrons by creating live art all night. The battle rounds consist of five three-minute rounds between two up-and-coming turntablists, with each battle hosted by a special guest MC and judged by crowd-vote. The winners of the weekly heats go onto quarter finals and semi finals, before the competition culminates with the top two squaring off in a grand-final on Thursday August 15.
