For the first time ever, the nation's biggest DJ Battle, the DMC US DJ Championship went down in Colorado thanks to Kyle Montoya aka DJ Hijinx from Mile High DJ Supply for convincing us to give Denver a chance, supplying all of the gear and co-presenting the Finals and to Walt White at Temple: Denver for his tireless efforts to make it happen at the coolest venue in the mile high city! Photos below by Ignacio Soltero
