US Wins DMC DJ World Championship 2011

(AllHipHop.com) The cream of the world’s DJ talent descended on London’s Indig02 to battle it out for one of hip hop’s ultimate accolades; the DMC DJ World Championship.

DJ Vajra, from Denver, Colorado was crowned DMC World Champion of 2011.

The competition brings together the finest DJs from across the globe, for two days of turntable wizardry. For the first time, the competition allowed DJs to use the software program, Serato.

Vajra initially won a spot to battle at the World Championships by competing at the US DMC competition in May 2011.

Vajra won his first battle after a gripping face-off with Cysko Rokwel. Varja then went on to battle against 30 finalists in London, including DJ Cross (Belgium) Erick Jay (Brazil) DJ Skills (France) and JFB (UK.)

Host and founder of the DMC Championships Tony Prince announced winners with organizer Sally Mclintock.

It was clear Vajra was a crowd favorite as the audience cheered loudly when Vajra’s name was announced as the new World DJ Champion.

Vajra received a one of a kind custom GOLD Rane 68 mixer, which was provided by DMC World DJ Championship sponsors Rane and Serato.

Other performances on the night included The X-Ecutioners, previous DMC winner DJ Switch, and Nathan “Flutebox” Lee.

The DMC DJ World Championship has been running 27 years. Previous champions include Kanye West’s DJ A-Trak, Q Bert, and MixMaster Mike from the Beastie Boys.

  • Wow! Times have changed!
    I remember when DJ’s had turntables & records, now they have software & World Championships.
    Propz…but DJ’s better not forget how to scratch without software… then again , it seems like wax & turntables are dying out.

    Do they even still sell wax , 12 inch records anymore?

      They stilll sell them in your local mom and pop stores and even online (fatbeats,accesshiphop,undergroundhiphop,etc.)..It’s dope to hear the DMC’s still going strong 27 yrs. deep.
