For 25 incredible boundary pushing, trend setting, scratched, cut and mixed years, the world’s largest DJ organization, DMC, has been the authority on the DJ battle. The DMCs annual World DJ Championship competition brings together the worlds brightest DJ talents, vetted by a series of gruelling global heats.
By doing so, DMC continues to host one of the most entertaining and jaw dropping shows you will ever witness. This years show is no different. In the 25th Anniversary of this prestigious competition, DMC is bigger than ever.
The DMC UK DJ Final and Battle For UK Supremacy took place on July 9th at the O2 Academy, Islington. The main competition featured the eight best DJs in the UK who have been battling it out across the country over the past six months for a place in this year’s final. Each DJ played an incredible set, but only one DJ could be the winner. The competition was tight, and with only a matter of points between them, but as the smoke cleared, Jeppa was crowned UK Champ. Furious P came in second, and Johnny 1 Move snatched 3rd place.
Earlier in the night 17 DJs took part in a no-holds-barred knock out competition to decide who would be the Battle for UK Supremacy Champion. With turntable dexterity, Rasp scratched his way to victory, and will battle at the World Finals, on September 11th at the Indig02 against a host of DJs – including last year’s World champ, the UKs own DJ Switch who will be defending his title.
