Multitalented musician Chong the Nomad participated in last year’s BeatMatch, and now look at her—she’s played the Capitol Hill Block Party and Upstream festivals, graced the cover of The Stranger, and been featured in an ad for Universal Audio. This bracketed tournament pits 16 local electronic-music producers flaunting their most exceptional rhythms and melodies before judges and a live audience. They’ll be competing for a cash prize and a slot at the 2019 Block Party. Witness up-and-coming beatmakers hungrily bust out their finest joints before they blow up.
