Every year, the world's greatest DJ competition continues to elevate. The competitors become more innovative, the venues become busier and DMC further solidifies its importance in the technological advances in DJ and music culture. 2012's DMC UK Final was no different, as the acts on show completely wowed the crowd with their skill.
After a hard fought battle on Friday 20th July at the Garage, London, the incredible Ritchie Ruftone came out on top, and will be representing the UK in the World Finals in September. After coming in second place in last year's UK Finals, the victory was particularly sweet for the Scottish DJ. Furious P came in with the runner up spot, and hotly tipped Asian Hawk grabbed the third place prize.
Not happy with simply winning the UK Final, the extremely talented Ritchie Ruftone also took the prize in The Battle For UK Supremacy, with 2010's UK Champ Deceptakut coming a close runner up.
In between the acts, charismatic host Inja charmed the audience with his trademark style, and the charismatic Four Owls brought their dedicated fan-base and raucous live show to the packed out Garage venue.
DMC World Supremacy Champions Nelson and Switch performed a one off, mind blowing showcase battle going head to head over a number of rounds. It was all done in the name of good sport, but if you missed it – you'll have to wait until the DVD to decide your winner.
With such a high calibre of skill on show at the DMC UK Finals, this year's World Finals on the 27th and 28th September at the HMV Forum will as fiery and testing as ever.
