Aug 7th, 2010 DMC USA Finals, Santos Party House NYC

After many months of touring around the US, the DMC is wrapping up its US competition and heading back to NYC where the regional DJ finalists will settle the score and see who is the best US. The winner gets flown to London to compete for the world finals and the Golden Technics 1200's turntables.

I highly recommend coming to this event. If you are a DJ, its a must. If you are even mildly interested or curious, come out and you will not be disappointed. Also, typically, the US finalist goes on to win the entire competition. Last year, NY's own DJ Shiftee brought home the title. Now he is a house hold name among DJs.

What a week! DJ Color TV’s b-day week.

If you are a regular reader, you might have noticed that this week was without new posts. Its not because there have been nothing happening, its actually the complete opposite. This last week was so jam packed with events, there was too much to do! So lets take a quick wrap up of all that happened.

This past Saturday night, yours truly, DJ Color TV had a b-day. There was a big house party where I was playing along side of some other fantastic NYC DJs. On deck was DJ Lobotomy, DJ Philly B, myself, and Boo from Fleetweek. The party was packed and the people were dancing. This party was the first in a series of events for this past week, and it capped off on thursday night with DJ J-Smoke, Mr Sinister, and more.

Oh and tonight is Turntable Sessions hosted by DJ Peace. There will be a new post for that though.

Z-Trip at the Need For Speed promo event

As the previous post stated, there was the promo party in NY for the Need for Speed - Hot Pursuit. DJ Roxy Cotton Tail held down the first half of the night. I must say, she was alright, but was completely overshadowed by Z-Trip. He is the man! If you don't already know his style, he really pushes the limits. Scratching, Juggling, using a sampler, all while rocking the dance floor better than any other DJ I can think of. The event was off the hook!

Also, Lil John, Pusha T of Clipse, and Pharelle were among the other guests. And you cannot forget about the cars and the hot car models.
