2013 DMC World Championships Results
Packing out a one day, all-day-long event at the massive, London venue Indig02, DMC yet again proved to revitalize, boost and replenish this rich DJ culture.
Including a myriad of excellent showcases and workshops including Popping, Locking, Beatboxing and of course Djing, this year’s competition was truly something special, and further solidified DMC’s importance in the technological advances in the art of DJing and music creation.
The battles and competition on the night were fantastic and turbulent, with incredible skill on show, but at the end of the evening France’s DJ Fly took the title with flare and the undeniable unfiltered swag of a champion.
Ritchie Ruftone repped for the UK and arrived at second place in style. DMC Online Champ Jon 1st went on to showcase a spellbinding set with the crowd behind him, and took the 3rd place after pleasing the judges with his skills.
Switching places from the results of last year’s championships, Ritchie Ruftone took first place in the Battle for World Supremacy, beating Canada’s very own DJ Vekked who pulled out a performance of a lifetime, inclusive of his trademark theatrics.
In a typically heated pursuit for the team battle title, France’s Mr Viktor, Deska & DJ Hertz beat the Defending Champions The Mixfitz by one point and took the sought after DMC Winner’s jackets and DMC World Team Champion title.
Before the Final’s winner was announced, the crowd were lucky enough to witness a once in a lifetime DMC Champions Showcase and Freestyle Jam that included the likes of DJ Cash Money, DJ Netik, DJ Fly, DJ Unkut, Mr Thing, Chris Karns (Vajra), Mr Switch and Jon 1st. You will have to wait for the DVD’s release to find out who shone the brightest…
