Get ready London- DMC World Finals Lands at the HMV Forum this Month.

In a brilliant year for British sport and culture, it makes sense that the Olympics of the DJ world reaches its 28th fantastic year in style. The DMC World DJ Championships continues to bring together the globe’s freshest DJ talents, vetted by a series of grueling heats from London to Tokyo and Brazil, all culminating in one of the most entertaining and unique shows you will ever witness. DMC once again show that they are the world’s leading authority on turntablism and DJ culture.

Following the successful addition of computer based DJ programs last year, the battlers are sure to raise the bar even further in 2012. Rane and Serato return as key sponsors, continuing to back DMC’s dedication to representing the current and future DJ.

As the pinnacle of the prize bounty, the winner of the 2012 DMC World DJ Championship wins a one of a kind, gold plated Rane Sixty Two mixer, provided by Rane and Serato. This is a very, very special prize indeed, worth more than money, so you can guarantee the DJs will be fighting to the end…

On Thursday 27th, the HMV Forum will play host to Day One of the year’s proceedings. On the night, the DMC Battle for World Supremacy and the DMC World Team Championships will commence, and over 100 DJs will battle it out over an evening of exhilarating turntable mastery. In between the acts, the world-class, DMC champ and all-round genius DJ Q Bert will return for what will be have to be witnessed to be believed. After smashing a performance at the UK Finals, UK stalwarts The Four Owls will be back for another high octane P.A alongside label mate Jam Baxter.

On Friday 28th, DMC are proud to present the DMC Championship World Final, where 30 National Champion DJs from around the world will battle it out for the ultimate in turntablist and DJ accolades: to be crowned the best DJ in the World.

One of the strongest line ups ever, for a truly awe inspiring evening of technical wizardry.

DMC: A Brief History

From its humble DJ record service beginnings in the early 80s, to establishing magazines, a street wear brand and music compilation CDs [including Back to Mine, described by NME magazine as ‘probably the greatest compilation series ever’], DMC has been vital in the growth of the DJ as a highly influential modern day cultural icon.

DMC redefined the role and image of the turntablist, believing strongly in the idea that the DJ could create something new and exciting armed with nothing but two decks, a mixer and healthy selection of vinyl.

27 years of hard fought battles later, and DMC has built an army of dedicated followers worldwide, housing successful branches and competitions in 25 countries. In the UK, host venues have included The Royal Albert Hall, Wembley Arena, The 02, Brixton Academy and the Hammersmith Apollo. Whilst the Championship Finals were staged internationally in Italy, Paris and New York, the spiritual home for the DMC World DJ Championship has become London. With DMC making appearances everywhere from Richard and Judy and Blue Peter to MTV and even being entwined within the plot of an episode of CSI: NY, it is clear to see the organization’s impact on popular culture.

Many great names have taken part over the years and are now etched forever within the historic visual series of DVDs and on the DMCWORLD.COM web site’s DMC Hall of Fame. The inspirational performances of the world champions have advanced the art of turntablism and go down in the history books for pushing the limits of what humans can do with technology.
