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!
