Scrub Club's fierce Versus Mode audio / visual competition in mid-2009 led to four new leveled-up artists on the label for 2010.
Held on Scrub Club's old community site, GeekAmigo, Versus Mode was a contest that had a group of up-and-coming artists go head to head for some challenges as well as team up for other goals. Out of a great amount of entrants, only 13 were selected to compete. Among the missions were recording new songs, getting professional photoshoots, promoting themselves, updating their web presence... In the end, when there were three finalists left, they competed against eachother live on stage to become Scrub Club's next signed artist.
Those three finalists were King Pheenix, Diabeats, and Thunderball from Southside. Thunderball rocked the stage at Nerd Invasion in Pensacola, Florida like no other and walked away with the grand title - but with his blessing, all three finalists as well as a runner-up, StarF, were integrated into Scrub Club also. In 2011, Maros was also asked to join the label.
This compilation includes 10 of the most notable tracks from the duration of the contest. They're not necessarily the best songs produced from Versus Mode as far as overall quality goes, but they are definitely the ones that stood out from the rest and had the most heart (or made us laugh our asses off, one of the two). Following these 10 tracks is the recording of the actual 40 minute live finale of Versus Mode, where you can hear all three finalists giving it their all to a very hungry crowd.
All of our music here at Scrub Club is free. However, if you enjoyed this release and would like to support our label, please make any size of donation to help all of our artists get new merch and promo items, book bigger shows, and get better equipment. Much love to you all!
