DJ Vekked becomes Canada’s first DMC World Supremacy Champion [News]
London, UK – DJ Vekked (Jacob Meyer) has joined the ranks of the world’s top turntablist DJ’s by becoming Canada’s first DMC World Supremacy Champion. The Waterloo, Ontario native battled his way through the head-to-head elimination discipline to capture Canada’s third ever solo DMC World title, earning his place beside Canadian veterans DJ A-Trak and DJ Dopey.
DJ Vekked’s road to the DMC World Finals began on September 7th, 2012 in Hamilton when he captured the 2012 Canadian National DMC Championships presented by RANE and Contact Distribution. Vekked took home over $4000 in prizing, including the highly sought after RANE Sixty-Two Mixer.
Although he had earned entry into the 2012 DMC World Championship 6 minute solo competition, Vekked’s decision to also enter the World Supremacy Competition has proven an excellent one. The DMC World Championships are going down tonight. Earlier today, around 1 p.m. EST, Vekked tweeted:
“Just got seeded 8th of 12 for the finals. Got soem work to do now!”
DMC Canada’s Managing Director, Amir Handan, provided us with a comment about Vekked’s success:
“On behalf of DMC Canada, we would like to congratulate DJ Vekked on his accomplishments and wish him all the best as he competes at this evening’s main event, the DMC World Championships!”
Stay tuned for further updates. Congrats to Vekked!
