The 2018 DMC Chicago Regional DJ Battle and DMC Battle for US Supremacy was a good time from beginning to end. Working with DJ Trew, Big Once, RTST, AMS, Scend and the whole DJs are Not Jukeboxes crew is always a pleasure. Good vibes all around and the venue: Lincoln Hall is pretty awesome too. Great lighting, great sound, great at-mosphere - I wish there was place like Lincoln Hall in NYC!

 

Competing in the DMC Chicago Regional - DMC’s classic showcase style battle:

 

William Kelly: Chicago IL

DJ NuEra: Cleveland OH

BrownRoyal: Aurora IL

DJ Remedy: Upperco MD

DJ Gilateen: Waukegan IL

 

Even though we could have easily went into the 6 minute final round (with only 5 DJs) - we wanted to enjoy their 2 minute elimination sets too!

The DJs performed a 2 min. routine for the judges and the judges or-dered the DJs 1st through 5th to compete in the finals. 1st place = 6 points. 2nd place = 5 points. 3rd place = 4 points. 4th place = 3 points. 5th place = 2 points.

 

1st: DJ Remedy: 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 = 36

2nd: DJ NuEra: 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 3 + 5 = 27

3rd: DJ Gilateen: 5 + 5 + 4 + 4 + 3 + 3 = 24

4th: BrownRoyal: 4 + 4 + 4 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 21

5th: William Kelly: 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 12

 

The 5 advanced to the finals and each performed a 6 minute routine for the judges. Judges selected their top 3 winners. 1st place = 3 points. 2nd place = 2 points. 3rd place = 1

 

1st place: DJ Remedy: 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 18

2nd place: DJ NuEra: 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 1 = 11

3rd place: DJ Gilateen: 1 + 2 + 1 = 4

4th place: 1 + 1 + 1 = 3

 

Seeing DJ Remedy’s expression as the Chicago audience showed him so much love after his winning set was a high point of the night. Moments like that are why I love organizing DJ battles!

 

DJ NuEra is battling his way to the top - keep an eye out for him this year!

 

Also, DJ Gilateen entered the battle at the last minute at DJ RTST’s encouragement. Gilateen scratched his ass off - and placed 3rd!!! I think this is great motivation for Scratch DJs to compete in the DMC regional battles as well as the Scratch finals. DMC Founder Tony Prince doesn’t want judging criteria for the battles. As one judge on Saturday night said, a great Scratch routine is better than an average but well rounded battle routine. Scratch DJs should really consider competing and just having fun with it. I think too many DJs put too much pressure on themselves to have a set that they think judges will like - when they would do better to consider it an open turntables style event and simply get up, get battle experience, do their own thing and have fun with it.

 

Thanks to everyone who competed. Not sure why Chicago DJs weren’t very present in this year’s battles but clearly the DJs from Ohio and Mary-land were hungry for titles!

 

Thanks again to DJs are Not Jukeboxes for having us back in Chi-cago!!

If there are more than 8 but less than 16 DJs, we will have a 2 min. elimination round to qualify. Early rounds are 2 x 1 minute each with the semi finals and final being 2 x 90 second rounds each. Dwells is invited to defend his national title at the 2018 DMC Battle for US Supremacy. The champion of this battle will advance to the 2018 DMC Battle for World Supremacy.
