DJ LIGONE from France is the new 2010 World DMC Champion (update, VIDEO + more pics)

The DMC this year is now over. It was in London for the last two days and the action was intense. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the DMC, it is a world-wide championship that crowns the best DJs/Turntablists in the world. The winners wins major gear, sponsorships, and get to tour around the world. Past notable winners are DJ Qbert, Mix Master Mike, DJ A Trac, DJ Craze, and most recently in 2009, DJ Shiftee. The US has brought home 12 wold championships, but in the last five years its gone back and forth between the US, Germany (once), and France. This year France took the title back.

So, its finally over. After months of prelims and qualifying rounds. The DJs in the competition can finally rest their hands and needles. The battle took place in London, on Sunday the 17th and Monday the 18th, 2010. The first day consisted of the Team battles and the Battle For Supremacy. The second day was the main event, the World DJ Championship. Last year's winner, DJ Shiftee, was there for pass the torch for this epic 6-minute battle.

This year, the US represented with DJ Etronic, but unfortunately, the world championship was dominated by Japan and France. Here are the winners:

The Battle for Supremicy and the Team battles were also quite the battle. Switch vs Getback was an intense supremacy battle. And for the team battles, Kireek, from Japan, won their 4th strait team brattle title. The winners are as follows:

1st – DJ Switch (UK)
2nd – Getback (France)

World Team Championship 2010
1st – Kireek (Japan)
2nd – Traumateam (France)

To wrap it up, the US got beat by France, the UK, and Japan. We were not even runners up. Oh well, next year. Hopefully this will light a fire under the US's DJs to represent. Lets get on the map for team battles for once.

Congrats to all the winners, Ligone, Switch, and team Kireek! Its a lot of hard work to get this far. These guys are the champs and the best of the best.
