Mix-masters Across Nation Compete In DJ Battle Hosted By McDonald's

McDonald's USA is teaming with men's style and lifestyle network Complex Media for the McDonald's Flavor Battle, a national DJ competition featuring some of America's hottest up-and-coming mix-masters and beatsmiths. The 13-week national challenge has begun with 24 DJs each representing a U.S. region and a McDonald's iconic burger — the Angus Third Pounder (East Coast), Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese (Central) and Big Mac (West Coast). Now in its fourth year, the competition has garnered recognition from award-winning disc jockey/music producer/radio personality/music mogul DJ Khaled.

"Being a DJ isn't a sideline gig, it's a culture and a lifestyle, and to be successful it takes steady dedication, drive and practice," said DJ Khaled. "This is a competitive industry and it's inspiring to see McDonald's, one of the world's most significant brands, provide this exclusive opportunity to up-and-coming talent."

Music and burger lovers can listen to a custom music mix from each DJ on http://www.FlavorBattle.com and vote daily for their favorite flavor master in each region. The three DJs with the most votes, one from each region, will travel to the finale in Miami and compete for the $10,000 grand prize in front of a panel of celebrity judges and crowd of hip audiophiles. Ultimately, one DJ will be crowned the Flavor Battle champion.

"There're some hot mixes in this year's battle," said Khaled. "I encourage everyone to check out the site and vote."

Music lovers are encouraged to vote often for their favorite mix-master. Each vote helps the DJ advance to the next round and also qualifies consumers for a chance to win a $2,000 cash grand prize or trip for two to the finale event in Miami on February 7, 2013. Voters can also share their top picks with friends and followers via Facebook and Twitter directly from http://www.FlavorBattle.com.

"McDonald's Flavor Battle brings some of the best, most creative DJ talent from across the nation to one place for the ultimate battle of eats and beats," said Rob Jackson, McDonald's U.S. marketing director. "We are a brand that aspires to be a good neighbor in ways that are relevant to the diverse communities we serve, and we value connections with customers both within and outside our restaurants."
