C2C – 2006 DMC World Team Championship Performance
The DMC World DJ Championship started back in 1985 amid a pre-internet, pre-mobile phone era and since its inception, the competition has helped birth, define and evolve turntablism with competitors constantly pushing boundaries, creating new tricks, scratches and styles to elevate their increasingly impressive routines. Along the way, the DMCs has been instrumental in launching the careers of A-Trak (Fool’s Gold), Hudson Mohawke (Warp Records), DJ Cash Money, Mix Master Mike (Beastie Boys), Qbert and C2C (x4 World Team Champs), to name just a few.
The DMC Finals have also hosted live performances from James Brown, Public Enemy, Janet Jackson, and Run DMC, and thirty years later, the event still remains the definitive competition and number one target for thousands of DJs worldwide. Following their successful introduction in 2013, the events popular, family-friendly daytime workshops return again this year. Fans will have the opportunity to learn popping and locking street dance moves from Rock Steady Crew’s PopMaster Fabel; the art of beatboxing from 2015 World Beatbox Crew Champions, The Beatbox Collective; the fundamentals of DJing with previous DMC Champs Mr Thing and DJ Nelson; and in a new workshop, freshly added for 2015 – get an insiders guide to lyricism from UK Hip Hop legends Jehst and Chester P.
