Competitors were offered a gift of Jico styli from LP Tunes to try out before the competition!

In addition to three DJs being the first DJs to ever use Rane Twelves in any live DMC DJ Battle, all of the DJs used the new Technics MK7s for the elimination round of DMC DC! So much new gear.

Kyle Montoya aka DJ Hijinx from Mile High DJ Supply filled in as host for the elimination round, did tech support AND the sound board. Flash DC, owned by Afshin - former DMC USA general manager - has a fabulous Funktion One system!

 

The DJs performed a 2 min. routine for the judges and the judges ordered the DJs 1st through 6th to compete in the finals.

1st place = 6 points. 2nd place = 5 points. 3rd place = 4 points. 4th place = 3 points. 5th place = 2 points. 6th place = 1 points.

1st: DJ Steel: 6 + 6 + 4 = 16

2nd: ASAP Handswell: 5 + 3 + 6 = 14

3rd: DJ Ragoza: 4 + 5 + 5 = 14

4th: DJ And One: 3 + 4 = 7

5th: Albert Balestrieri: 2 + 2 + 3 = 7

6th: DJ Trickset: 1 + 2 = 3

7th: Kam DJ Phenomenon: 1 + 1 = 2

 

The top 6 advanced to the finals and each performed a 6 minute routine for the judges. Judges selected their top 3 winners. 1st place = 3 points. 2nd place = 2 points. 3rd place = 1

 

1st: DJ Ragoza: 3 + 2 + 1 = 6

2nd: DJ Steel: 3 + 2 + 1 = 6

3rd: ASAP Handswell : 3 + 2 = 5

4th: DJ And One: 1

 

As Steel and Ragoza tied evenly - judges debated and gave first to Ragoza with Steel taking runner up … I don’t think we have seen the last of DJ Steel this battle scene.
