TPATD009: Hoodrow Trillson / Beat Fighter

In this episode Sandurz is out on vacation and Hoodrow Trillson fills in as guest host along with Tha 5th Element and Johann Sebastian. Hoodrow is the host and organizer of the popular online beat battle series, Beat Fighter. We talk about how Beat Fighter came to be and a bunch of other threads brought up on the forum such as tips for online collaboration, how to make tracks more aggressive and how awesome the IRC is.
