From 12am to 1am - Master Of The Mix viewing
From 1am till close - We shall see...
Also there are great drink specials, $1 draft, $2 cans, $3 wells, all day and all night long!!! Click through for more info on the party and how to sign up for the turntables.
Your's truely, DJ Color TV, competed in the 2012 Winter Music Conference (WMC) 5-Minute DJ-Spinoff battle, and brought home the 3rd place title. The battle was long with 20 competitors and the competition was tough. DJ Manny took home 1st Place and DJ Ease was 2nd. If you have ever wondered what goes into a battle like this, click through. Also, there are videos and pictures of the event.

Its pretty rare to get an explanation on what someone is doing on a battle/juggle routine, especially for free. I have learned many technics from many different DJs on some basic/advanced juggling concepts, but nothing really like this. Watch the video, its a great breakdown, and if you apply yourself, you should be able to copy it pretty quickly. Also, click through for DJ Shiftee's tribute to the DMC's "The Golden Years" video.

Apparently, at the DMC is making some changes. This was announced at the end of the World DMC Competition on October 18th, 2010. Tony Prince, the founder of the DMC, was reported to announce this news on stage after announcing the new heavy sponsorship from Rane and Serato. Personally, I am not sure if this is a good or bad thing. Its good that the competition is getting with the times, but on the other hand it could destroy the competition altogether.
