The winner of the DMC World championship for 2015 was a little of a breath of fresh air you could say. If you watched the winning routines from the three previous years, you would know what I am talking about. It was just all technical and no music, just noise. And the technical aspect is definitely important but to some extent. Vekked's routine was definitely technical but it was a lot more musical than just trying to add the most complex cuts and juggles possible and that is why I call it a breath of fresh air. I don't know if the video need to be edited that much but nonetheless, here is his performance with his gold Rane 57 mixer.
