Our third round of battle was some of the most exciting bouts we’ve seen so far in the 2014 season. No rookies on the stage Thursday night as we saw the return of AG, Goodwill, Mike Regal and Allerian. The diversity of styles was a welcome change of pace.
No two producers were in any way alike, and each round had plenty of surprises in store.
Round 1: Allerian  VS Goodwill 
We all were excited to see what Allerian was going to bring to the table this year. Last season, he was a surprise to all who faced who faced him. In 2013 these two competitors faced each other in a very close bout. This year was no different. With only a 21 point differential, Allerian pulled with a win in our first battle.
Round 2: AG  VS Mike Regal 
It’s been several years since AG has been on the MTBD stage, and it’s obvious that he’s been perfecting his craft since. From what we saw from Mike Regal, he too has been busy in the lab honing his battle skills. Mike stepped out of the gate strong, with an arsenal of hot beats and some Mortal Kombat samples! Mike offered up a FATALITY for this round.
Round 3: Allerian  VS AG
Allerian’s electro hybrid style was tough for AG to keep up with in this round. While AG had some heat, Allerian was captivating the crowd with his Elektron Octarack. Live manipulation of the beats came with ease for Allerian, and if those who didn’t care for his sound, were on his side as he freaked the funk.
Round 4: Goodwill  VS Mike Regal 
This was the battle we had been waiting for all night! Goodwill and Mike Regal brought the HOTTEST of HOTTNESS in this battle. Goodwill’s bass heavy bangers went toe to toe with Mike’s hard hitting samples. After six beats, the crowd wanted more. Before we could get the audience to vote for their favorite, a MTBD #beatoff was called for.

After 4 rounds of battle, Mike Regal came out ahead with a 42 point lead.
Round 5: Allreian  VS Mike Regal 
Coming back into the ring, after a big win against Goodwill, Mike Regal really hit his stride. While Allerian’s style was no match for Mike’s hard-hitting anthems. The crowd was with him, and so were the judges, as Mike Regal won his third round of competition.
Round 6: Goodwill  VS AG
Goodwill seemed determined to knock out AG in this final bout. But AG came correct, and brought his 3 best beats of this night in this round. You could tell each of these producers were ready to claim a victory in the final competition of the night. AG’s style was giving Goodwill a run for his money, but in the end, the judges awarded a few more to Goodwill
In the end Mike Regal not only won each of his battles, but he won over the crowd as well. With a score of 1,295 Mike Regal is our 3rd finalist for the 2014 Miltown Beat Down and will compete in the November 8th Finals.
