The 2013 DMC US DJ Battle Finals took place on Saturday Aug. 3, 2013 at Stage 48 in New York City. The audience was treated to one of the best DJ battles of all time as all the contestants could easily have been in the top three. None of the judges could agree on the same top-three. The top-three contestants in the US Battle (1st DJ Esquire, 2nd DJ Sparechange, 3rd DJ Ease) will all go represent the US in the DMC World DJ Championships on October 5th in London.
The winner of the 2013 Online DMC Championships Round 9 has been announced by the DMC judges. The performance which took top honors this week was DJ Jooce from Canada who does some serious scratching and juggling in a great champion-worthy performance.
Calling all DJ's!!! We want your feedback! We need DJ's like you to answer a few short questions about the way you DJ, how you DJ, and what you DJ with on a regular basis in order to help companies better understand the direction of the industry. We will randomly select a survey participant for the excellent grand prize in the form of a Traktor Kontrol S4 DJ Controller, (2) Stanton ST-150 Super-OEM turntables, and a Traktor Scratch Package to bring it all together for some DVS timecode fun!
The Gibson Pro Audio group (Stanton, Cerwin Vega, and KRK) are also in the house at the Atlantic City DJ Expo and we are there to show you what they've got for us. First off, they had the Stanton CMP.800, the SCS.4DJ, the DJC.4, and so much more. Everything was on display ready to use for any who wish to do so. Also in the booth were the entire line of KRK Studio Monitors and the Cerwin Vega speaker and subwoofer line. DJ Premier rocked the house on Tuesday, and Biz Markie is stopping by later today!
Our good friends over at American Music and Sound were once again showing off their goodies at the 2013 DJ Expo with their Lineup of Reloop gear, Vestax controllers and Allen & Heath Mixers. We were also able to catch DJ Angelo from the UK ripping it up on the new US-Bound Reloop RP-6000mk6 Super OEM turntables and RMX-80 mixer that will be available state-side immediately! The Vestax Typoon and professional VCI-380 and VCI-400 controllers were in the booth along with the Allen & Heath Mixer range.
