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.
