Latest On The DMC World DJ Championship Finals 2011
RANE & SERATO present:
The DMC World DJ Finals, 2011
Indig02, O2 Arena, London

Thursday 6th + Friday 7th October

Every year the DMC DJ Championships grow. The competitors become more innovative and the DMC brand itself becomes even more critical to the technological advances in DJ and music culture. The DMC World Finals 2011 were no different, as the competitors harnessed the opportunity to use Serato Scratch Live and DVS in their routines, pushing the standards of every set even higher.

Each of the competitors at this year's World Final were of an extremely high calibre, but after a hard fought battle, Vajra took the crown for the USA. No one in the building could question the skills he had displayed, as he cut and scratched his way to becoming the owner of the 2011 title and the much talked about gold-plated Rane Sixty-Eight mixer, among many other prizes supplied by Rane and Serato. Japan's Izoh came in second with a highly entertaining routine, and DJ Co-Ma, also from Japan, came in third. 2 x DMC UK Champion JFB delivered a masterful performance which now places him 4th in the World.

The Battle for Supremacy ended in style with France's DJ Nelson taking out all competitors with the skills only a champion of champions could exhibit. The Runner up Norihito from Japan battled hard too, and will without a doubt be coming back next year to try and retrieve the crown.

The Team Battle on Thursday got people talking, with Japan's Kireek winning the title again - their 5th consecutive win, now beating C2C to hold the world record for consecutive World Team Championship wins.

Thursday 6th + Friday 7th October


Every year the DMC DJ Championships grow. The competitors become more innovative and the DMC brand itself becomes even more critical to the technological advances in DJ and music culture. The DMC World Finals 2011 were no different, as the competitors harnessed the opportunity to use Serato Scratch Live and DVS in their routines, pushing the standards of every set even higher.
 
Each of the competitors at this year’s World Final were of an extremely high calibre, but after a hard fought battle, Vajra took the crown for the USA. No one in the building could question the skills he had displayed, as he cut and scratched his way to becoming the owner of the 2011 title and the much talked about gold-plated Rane Sixty-Eight mixer, among many other prizes supplied by Rane and Serato. Japan’s Izoh came in second with a highly entertaining routine, and DJ Co-Ma, also from Japan, came in third. 2 x DMC UK Champion JFB delivered a masterful performance which now places him 4th in the World.
 
The Battle for Supremacy ended in style with France’s DJ Nelson taking out all competitors with the skills only a champion of champions could exhibit. The Runner up Norihito from Japan battled hard too, and will without a doubt be coming back next year to try and retrieve the crown.

The Team Battle on Thursday got people talking, with Japan’s Kireek winning the title again – their 5th consecutive win, now beating C2C to hold the world record for consecutive World Team Championship wins.


In between the acts, charismatic host Inja charmed the audience with his trademark style treating the crowd to a host of new tracks that sounded huge on the Indig02’s purpose built sound system. Thursday saw The X Ecutioners return to show London precisely why they are considered one of the best DJ Crews on the planet. Hobbit joined all female beatbox crew The Boxettes to provide a welcome break to the testosterone in the room, providing all kinds of inhuman noises that impressed the typically turntablist enthusiast audience.
 
On Friday night the 2010 World Champion DJ Ligone performed a special Rane and Serato showcase, and Nathan Flutebox Lee and The Clinic stormed the stage with live-band backed rap and flute-boxing (beatboxing and flute at the same time) leaving no one in the room able to believe what they were seeing. DJ Switch performed the impressive Concerto for Turntables, and 2003 World Supremacy DJ Tigerstyle cracked out the MPC for a multi-hardware show.
 
All in all the two-day event was another example of how the DMC World Championships keep moving with the times and are getting bigger every year. DMC are looking forward to 2012’s proceedings, and are proud to announce that  Rane and Serato will continue their valued support of DMC in sponsoring next year’s events. This of course means the 2012 World DMC DJ Champion will also be receiving a specially manufactured gold-plated Rane mixer for Serato Scratch Live.
 
 
 
 
Serato HQ (New Zealand)
"This year's DMC events demonstrate how far the bar has been raised, and it was amazing to see first hand Serato Scratch Live and digital vinyl systems being embraced and pushed past their limits by the competitors. It was an inspiring two nights of performances and Serato are so thrilled for DJ Vajra, who is definitely deserving of Champion status. Bring on 2012!"
 
Dean Standing ( Rane corporation, USA)
“The world finals were over the top. The skills of the competitors this year were amazing – I’m glad that I’m not a judge and can sit back and enjoy the event. Rane is pleased to involved with DMC and we look forward to the continued evolution of the performances”
 
Tony Prince (DMC Founder)
“The DMC World DJ Championships create new DJ stars every year.  This year it’s apparent the stars will be bigger than ever now they have adapted turntables to technology.  
Promoted throughout the year with ONLINE DJ CHAMPIONSHIPS (via dmcworld.com) we are reaching hundreds of new countries and able to inspire thousands of new breed DJs in every corner of the globe.
We are extremely grateful to have the perfect sponsors, Rane and Serato, along with us for this magical annual ride and can’t wait to see where we go from here.”
 
Sally Mclintock (DMC World Events Manager)
“So happy with the success of this year’s World Finals. DJs flew in from all over the world to compete for the ultimate DJ title – DMC World Champion, and the chance to take home the custom made Gold Rane 68 Mixer. Congratulations to DJ Vajra (USA), Kireek (Japan) and DJ Nelson (France) on your World titles!  This year’s event just shows what new levels and standards the DJs are reaching, now they have the ability to use Serato Scratch Live. We look forward to working with our sponsors and the 2012 planning has already begun. Roll on next year”

2011 is a milestone year, not just for the competition, but yet again the DMC World DJ Championship’s boundary pushing will signal change in the wider world of technology. In its 27th successful year, DMC has brought together the globe’s brightest DJ talents, vetted by a series of gruelling heats from London to Tokyo to Brazil. This year, not only are DMC continuing to host one of the most entertaining and jaw dropping shows you will ever witness – but they have set the bar even higher.
 
For the first time, competitors can harness the full spectrum of computer based DJ programs, most notably from trend-setters and the event sponsors Serato. This is also the first year of the groundbreaking DMC Online Championships, and after months of global entries and online voting DJ Unkut from Germany was crowned the winner. Among the prizes, Unkut will receive $3000 and an all expenses paid trip to London to compete in the World Final.
 
While change is afoot, the most important aspect of the DMCs has of course remained true to the art. To become a DMC World Champion, DJs around the world still need to use techniques such as scratching & cutting to manipulate turntables and vinyl in order to create their own musical arrangements, performing live in front of an audience filled with both the knowledgeable DMC fans and lucky newcomers being initiated to this fantastic contest.
 
On Thursday 6th October, over 100 DJs with battle it out on the night in two of the most exhilarating turntable events on the planet: the Battle for World Supremacy and the World Team Battle. In between the battles on the night, DMC have provided a real treat for hip-hop fans and devoted turntablism followers. Following their fantastic showcase at the UK Finals, New York Turntable legends The X-Ecutioners are back to perform another smashing set. All girl beat-box crew The Boxettes are joined by Hobbit in a special show for the DMCs, and DMC Host INJA takes to the stage to perform tracks from his latest release!
 
Friday 7th October sees the main event, the DJ Championship World Final – where the world’s best DJs compete for the ultimate DJ accolade. Competing this year for the UK is DJ JFB, who has found success through his skills via his production prowess and dj’ing for Beardyman. The prizes are, as always, aplenty. But this year, sponsors Rane and Serato have been kind enough to donate a special prize to the World Champion: a GOLD Rane 68 Mixer worth $5000. The fight will be hard fought…
 
In between the final days battles, DMC have again provided a monster line up. DMC 2010 World Champ DJ Ligone will provide a Rane and Serato showcase, fresh from his Royal Albert Hall show – DJ Switch will rock his ‘Concerto For Turntables’ in a three deck special, Nathan Flutebox Lee and The Clinic will wow audiences and DJ Tigerstyle (DMC World Supremacy Champion 2003) will also step up for an exclusive set.
 
With World Championship winners over the years including the superstar likes of the Scratch Perverts, A-Trak (Kanye West’s DJ), Q Bert, Craze and Mixmaster Mike (Beastie Boys), fame and respect could well accompany the bountiful prizes on offer (including a treasure trove of goodies provided by sponsors Rane, Serato, Sennheiser and more! ).
 
Providing the music in between all the DJ sets and performances is our latest recruit – DJ Chris P Cuts.
