The former DMC World Champion of 2004 and 2005; DJ IE Merge rips it up at DJ Craze's studio. From 2002-2005, Merge won 35 DJ battles. Since 2002, Merge has won 9 national titles and 4 world titles, more titles in 3 years than any other DJ. He has won every prominent US title, and is known for his highly technical routines. Growing up in Northern New Jersey (Representin' Jersey for Life!), DJ IE-Merge was heavily influenced by the New York hip hop scene. At the age of 13 he began DJing local parties and practicing at home. Along with artists such as Mista Sinista and Q-Bert, he is also influenced by other genres as well, such as drum n bass, rock, jazz and soul. In 2002, he became active at the Scratch DJ Academy, a DJ school in New York founded by the late Jam Master Jay. Merge became Head Professor, developing the curriculum now taught in the scratch/juggling class. This dude's technical ability is just beyond greatness. Check out the video below to see a true Turntable Master at work! My jaw simply falls to the floor every time I watch it.
