Johannesburg - In front of a crowd of over 1000 spectators, Artistic Intelligence took the first ever Red Bull Beat Battle title.

Eight crews from all over South Africa faced off at the Blue Room at Jozi's Old Park Station.

After going up against Cape Town's Ubuntu in the final, Artistic Intelligence were crowned the 2011 champions.

Well-respected local B-boy and judge Gerald Witbooi aka Vouks Nojokes commented: "First of all big ups to all of the crews for making it onto the Red Bull Beat Battle stage, that on its own is an achievement! The two finalists, Artistic Intelligence and Ubuntu came, danced and conquered as they truly represented what Red Bull Beat Battle is all about. At the end of the day there can only be one winner. Congrats to A.I. on their victory!"

Artistic Intelligence claim that winning Red Bull Beat Battle has made their somewhat testing 2011 into one of the best years that they've ever had: "The thought of being the Beat Battle champs is crazy and we fought really hard for this title" said Tumi Trent of A.I.

Red Bull Beat Battle was hosted in association with Yfm.
