Simon Cowell’s new show to find The Worlds Greatest DJ

Today, Simon Cowell announced that he will be launching a new TV show to find "the world's greatest DJs".  Sounds like a cheesy premise, but it could really pan out to be a very interesting show for viewers and DJs alike. With more and more popularity around global DJ competitions like the Red Bull 3Style and the DMC, the step to TV seems almost natural. So, how it might actually go down? What will the format be? How will this be judged? How will they find DJs?  Lets take a look, click to read more…

The 2011 DMC is Starting Up, with new rules!

Its about that time again for DJs to get out of their bedrooms and showcase their skills on the stage. The DMC is the worlds biggest and best DJ competition and it happens on a global scale. Last year, DJ LigOne of France, took the world tittle. His wining set is in the video below (but I think this was from the regional championships in France).

DJ Shiftee for America’s Best DJ 2010 (with videos)

DJ Shiftee, if you don't know about him, then you should. He is the 2007 DMC Battle for World Supremecy champion (2 minute head to head routines, posted below), and the 2009 World DJ Champion (6 minute battle routines, also posted below). He has the gold turntables, and hes got mad skill. This year, he is up for America's best DJ, and I think he has go the skills to earn that title. His 2010 campaign video (parts 1 and 2), party routine, and other videos are all after the jump:

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.
