Turntablism DMCs and all that shit!

First off ... I aspire and will never get myself beyond a basic scratch or even a flair, but since the 80's Ive always had an undercover passion for scracthing/turntablism. Hell Ive got 200+ HipHop/Rap records from the old school and what got me into buying my Technics which I still have after 30+ years (they need some TLC service) but have survived parties, beer spillages and god knows what substances are likely to be entrenched in the inner workings!
Turntablism/scratching has evolved so much over the decades from single decks, tricks, technology to the current day vinyl, serato/traktor, push button mixer controller dj'ing.
Reason Im posting this is, I just popped a damaged speaker to be sent of to repair in my local music store and got chatting to a guy called Steve. Spoke a little about mixing, styles, vinyls, the old days and hit on a subject of Breakdancing in the old days, back in the day I knew a couple a guys "Darryl and Acer" from a breakdance crew "Second to None". Anyway I digress, turns out Steve just happen to drop in to the convo he's the DMC 2016 and 2017 Turntable Champion (googled him when home DJ X-Rated confirmed. So somewhat impressed and inspired I thought Id drop on YouTube "just to validate his claim" and it took me so far back. So a few links to inspire and entertain you guys.
Drop your own in here if you have them...


i GOT TO SAY THE goLDIE aWARdS/Vekked IS JUST EPIC! DJing meets Showboating - thats what it;s all about <oops accidental caps - it works!

Plenty more https://www.youtube.com/user/DMCworldchamps

Went to a Jazzy Jeff show at a bar once - it was pretty fun.

Re: Turntablism DMCs and all that shit!

on a more serious note, in general its fun to watch, but not so fun to listen to, as music. it always makes me laugh seeing the people in the crowd dancing to it when there isn't really anything to dance to.
