Mixers, scratchers and turntable junkies, the DMC UK DJ Championships are back for 2008 where they'll be unearthing the UK's very best in turntable dexterity! The successful turntable wizard will then go on to represent the UK at the DMC World DJ Championships on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th September at Indig02.

The 2008 DMC UK DJ Championships final takes place on Thursday 17th July 2008 at Islington Academy, London and follows a series of nationwide heats which started on the 25th April in Plymouth and ends in London on 21st June.

This year the winners get £500 worth of clothes from Drunknmunky for each battle – the UK Final and UK Supremacy. Our friends over at CK are providing CKIN2U fragrance goodie bags. This is all in addition to the regular prizes of the Golden Technics Turntables and a $10,000 cheque from Ortofon. These prizes will complement the accolade of being crowned the DMC World DJ Champion for 2008.

Past DMC UK Champions have included The Scratch Perverts, BBC Radio 1Xtra's DJ Blakey and Plus One, who went on to be crowned DMC World Champion in 2001. Last year's UK Champion winner JFB will be participating in this year's event defending his title.

This year's event is hosted by DMC favourites' MC Trip and Cutmaster Swift, who'll be joined on stage with live PA's from Million Dan with DJ support from DJ Skitz, and Le Shadow as the microphone hype man. Hobbit will be performing a standalone beatbox set.

MC Trip was awarded the Time Out accolade of 'Best Live Show of 2004'. He is explosive on stage and is Killa Kela's official MC/right hand man. To date he's shared the stage with Busta Rhymes, Outkast and N.E.R.D.

Cutmaster Swift, the legendary UK scratch-mix DJ won the UK/World DMC title in 1989 and is a frequent presenter at the DMC DJ Championships.

Ex-Demon Boyz MC, Million Dan will be performing live with DJ Skitz on the decks, and Le Shadow hyping up the crowd on the mic. Million Dan has been bigged up by Busta Rhymes when he was quoted as saying: 'Million Dan is the Shizzle on stage!!.' He launched his Million Dappa Records last year and has just released his album 'Spektrum' to critical acclaim. Beat master DJ Skitz is now known across London for his hip-hop production skills. Expect a performance of some of the very best in UK hip-hop.

Meanwhile, Hobbit, who at the age of only 20 has carved out a successful career to date, is showing no signs of running out of breath. His videos featured on YouTube have received over 1 million hits and he has appeared all over the UK and in the USA with the likes of Nizlopi, Zulu Nation, Kenny Mohammad, Cutmaster Swift, Killa Kela, Ugly Duckling, Herbaliser, and DJ Yoda.

So, whether you want to enter, or simply witness the nation's best DJ talent, make sure you're down at the Islington Academy on Thursday 17th July!
