Yesterday while scratching it up on my tables, I decided to look at some online videos of some of the greatest Turntablists to ever touch a pair of decks. This search ultimately brought me to a few videos of the 2007 World DMC Champion DJ Rafik. This dude has lots of style and energy in his performances and his skills are simply out of this world. Take a look at the video below to see DJ Rafik put it down on the one's and two's performing the same set that got him the 2007 DMC World title!

About DJ Rafik (Taken from Rafik Myspace Page):

A baby listening to his parents practice, a toddler playing cello and piano, a drummer by the age of 6, dj by the age of 13 - World Record DJ Champion by the age of 25.
Rafik's story is not short on pages.
Stacking 6 World Titles, 2 European and 8 national titles this young member of the Lordz Of Fitness Crew (Kid Fresh, Rasgunyado, Rafik and J-Bounce) is a small institution of it's own today, his greatest battle success being the 2007 DMC WORLD DJ CHAMPION title which he accomplished alongside superproducer Le Jad.
A Dj-Battle predator, clubrocker, scratch music pioneer and upcoming producer - Rafik covers every facette of his art in great variety.
He has explored the world with his Dj-Sets - Europe to the US, Dubai to China, Japan to Australia - The list goes on.
