This past Saturday, May 3rd in Buena Park, California, scratch heads, musicians, artists, and vendors alike all gathered together to witness some of the dopest DJs compete for the Los Angeles DMC Regional championship title and the USA Battle of Supremacy that every turntablist dreams to add to their resume. In order to please, not only the crowd, but also an entire row of legendary DJs who are judging every intricate detail in your set, it takes months, even years of practicing; so the competitors never take a battle like this lightly. Mad props go out to all the DJs that represented. There was definitely a lot of talent in the room that night, but in any competitive event, there’s only one supreme being that can reign and wear the crown–until the next battle.
Here are the stats: For the Los Angeles Regional: 1st place – Manwell, 2nd place – IFTW, and 3rd – Xist.
For USA Battle of Supremacy: 1st place – IFTW and 2nd place – SPS
Congratulations to all the winners!
