TODAY! 2010 East Coast DMC Championship @ Santos

It snuck up on me, but the 2010 DMC is today at 4pm! Its at Santos Party House here in NY. Last year NY's own DJ Shiftee won the world wide title. He is sick! This year, he will be judging and doing an expo. Also, this year, NYC Electro's own DJ Shu-T will be competing. There will also be other acts and famous judges there.

2010 DMC

The competition is at Santos Party House just south of Canal on Lafayette St, and it starts at 4. I would say to get there after 6 or maybe even 7pm because the trials and the first rounds are long and people are holding back. If you have not seen a DMC before then you should definitely come later because you will probably get bored. The best stuff is on the last few rounds. Its totally worth it when you see the best battle. Its quite amazing. Check the videos below!

Info from the Santo's events page:

The DMC DJ Battles are the longest running, most prestigious DJ Battles in the world. In DMC battles, legends are made. Being a DMC World or National Champion continues to be one of the most sought after titles for turntablists world wide! DMC USA is especially ecstatic that the reigning DMC World Champ is NYC’s own DJ Shiftee.
