Let the Battle begin! This time, it's going to be a real showcase with Star-studded DJs! Amazing how Turntablism evolved, from mash ups, beat-juggling to custom vinyls! Indeed, DJs / Turntablists aren't just music players but artists! Wish I could be there to witness the 25th Anniversary! (VINYL RULES)
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 DMC's annual World DJ Championship competition brings together the world's brightest DJ talents, vetted by a series of gruelling global heats.
