ABOUT THE 2009 DMC AMERICAN BATTLEGROUND
DMC DJ Battles are the World’s most longest running and most prestigious DJ Battles. This year, DJs took charge of their local battle scenes to bring DMC battles to both San Antonio TX and New Orleans LA for the first time ever, as well as to tried and true DJ battle cities: New York City and Los Angeles. DJs from across the USA will enter battles in these select cities with the hope of representing the United States in the 2009 DMC World DJ Championships in London on Sept. 11th and 12th.
In the traditional DMC DJ battle, which began in 1985, DJs showcase two and six minute routines on 2 Technics turntables and 1 mixer for the judges. The first US DJ to win this battle was DJ Cheese from Plainfield NJ who incorporated scratching into his routine, taking the 1986 DMC World title and forever changing what was more of a mixing competition to a Hip Hop DJ battle. Since that time Americans including DJ Cash Money, Roc Raida, Craze, ie.MERG, Qbert, Mix Master Mike and Apollo have claimed the World title. This year, DJs will enter the regional battles in TX, NY, CA and LA to gain a place in the 2009 DMC USA Finals being held at NYC’s hot spot Santos Party House (96 Lafayette St) on August 1st.
Two additional DMC battles were created more recently to meet the battle DJs demand for variety. The DMC Team DJ Battle, debuted in 1999, and consists of crews of two to four DJs battling showcase style for six minutes each on as many as 6 Technics turntables and 4 mixers. Since 2008, DJ teams have been permitted to use computer programs such as Serato Scratch Live. The Team battle will be held in Los Angeles at The Sabor Lounge (847 S. Union Ave.) on June 27th along with the DMC West Coast Regional Battle.
The DMC Battle for Supremacy, a classic head to head style DJ battle, established in 2000, pairs competitors up and squares them off for two 90 second rounds on 2 Technics turntables and 1 mixer. This battle will be held in New York City at Santos Party House (96 Lafayette St) on June 13th along with the DMC East Coast Regional Battle.
