FINAL_1_A3_NSW_2017

DMC launched the DMC World DJ Championships in 1985 when a young Londoner called Roger Johnson took the first title in London’s fantastic Hippodrome where DMC staged a DJ Convention.

It took America’s DJ Cheese in 1986 to bring the best out of the turntables by scratching his way to DMC’s first ever World Title.

By the following year, turntable tricks started to establish themselves with the emergence of props, body tricks and a variety of scratching techniques, DJs scratched with bicycles and even kitchen sinks. And the venue that had never before featured a DJ let alone heard hip-hop riffs, the Royal Albert Hall rang to the mighty sound of scratching, yet to be called turntablism.

The DMC World DJ Comp is the biggest, most respected DJ Comp in the world, and has been host to the biggest names in the DJ world including DJ QBert, Mixmaster Mike, Roc Raida, Ca$h Money, DJ KENTARO and many more!

Last year we crowned a new Champion in NSW, DJ Cost (Big Village). Let’s see who is gonna step up to claim the title this year!!!

Sadly, this will also be the last year that DMC Australian Dj Championships – NSW is held at PLAY BAR, due to the terrible news that they will be closing the doors to this iconic Sydney venue the Sunday following. Let’s make it a BIG ONE to go down in the history books!!!

TOTAL ECLIPSE // (The X-ECUTIONERS)

Total_Eclipse_960w_GS_2

Total Eclipse got his 1st set of turntables in ’91 at the age of 14, and “learned how to cut by watching Scratch, from EPMD cut on their videos on Video Music Box.” He was also influenced by Barry B, an older DJ from the neighborhood who showed him cuts and tricks.

In November ‘94 Total Eclipse entered his first DJ battle live on the air on DJ Mayhem’s college radio show on WNYU in New York City; he got first place and caught the attention of Rob Swift. Rob and Eclipse started to practice together, and Rob taught Eclipse the history of Battling and showed him how to beat juggle. “He showed me stuff that I never thought was possible – he showed me a tape of the ’90 New Music Seminar Battle between Steve D (a founding member of the X-men) and Francesca (from Italy) – it was the 1st time I saw 2 totally different and raw styles going against each other like that”. Through Rob, he became friendly with the other members of The X-men crew and started practicing with them.

These influences inspired him to take it to a new level – and it showed in ensuing battles; in March 1996, Eclipse entered the Beat Street Records DJ Battle where he took first place and received a gold bronzed Technic 1200 turntable. He entered several more battles around New York that year culminating in the International Turntables Federation Battle (ITF), where he went up against the best national and international competition. Eclipse rose to the challenge and placed first. He was shortly thereafter, inducted into the X-Men.

In June of 1997, The X-ecutioners recorded their debut album “X-pressions” for Asphodel Records. One of Eclipse’s many standout moment includes his work on the track called “Turntable Exhibition” a self produced cut that displays the essence of true turntablism with Eclipse using only his two Technic 1200’s and his Vestax 05PRO mixer to create a sonic collage. The X-ecutioners have since signed a recording deal with Loud Records – the debut “Built From Scratch” will be released this fall.

Total Eclipse recorded cuts on “Equinox” for Organized Konfusion on Priority Records. This created a special bond between the group and Eclipse. Organized Konfusion’s rhymes complimented Total Eclipse’s cutting skills at such an advanced level that Organized Konfusion became his favorite rap group. He then went on to do cuts and tour with Pharoah Monch which culminated in his first TV performance on BETÕs Live in LA, which was shortly followed by a solo appearance by Total Eclipse on The Queen Latifah show where he battled a fellow New York turntablist and took live studio audience audience by storm.

Total Eclipse plans to continue his work with The X-ecutioners, as well as work on his solo album to be released on Tableturns.

DJ iDEE // (DC / 2014 DMC USA Champ / 2014 DMC Online Champ)

idee_960w

Snatching the attention of music industry heavyweights across the bass spectrum, i-DEE isn’t bangin’ around wasting time- he has his trap, bass and hip-hop sentiments anchored and ready to drop. The American born turntablist and quintessential architect of his own sound, lays down beats in an unruly and raucous manner, leaving his open format vibe behind the console high at any point.

Striking a ferocious intersection between all things trap and moombahton within the four walls of his studio, i-DEE has forged a significant bearing on musical devotees in his pool and beyond. Sonically strong, his production fuses with a solid turntablist momentum that has created an eclectic foundation for him, giving new meaning to uniquely created sounds. His recent remix for Mannie Fresh featuring Juvenile on ‘Energized’ donned fire upon the landscape while his Original ‘Krumpet’ seized blog world – proving momentous, keeping i-DEE on the consistent move with a steady and anticipated studio output welcoming in 2017.

Two decades on the decks have left Isaac, the face behind the name upping the ante on the bass heavy boulevard, reserving a DMC World and USA Champion title in recent years, shining dynamite spotlight on raw and undeniable skill. Tapping dot points from Miami to Singapore, London’s o2 and The White House state dinner after-party in between, i-DEE is unsparingly dangerous on show giving height to old-school dexterity and a rich party for all. Having co-billed with Diplo, Travis Scott, A$AP Ferg, Chromeo and Fat Joe, has proven his unruly knack for pummeling trap cuts, thrashing bass lines and classic hip hop drops is without a doubt infallible.
