The DMC DJ Battles were established in the United Kingdom by the founder of the Disco Mix Club (DMC), Tony Prince in 1985. Since then the DMC’s have grown to be known as the World’s #1 DJ Competition with more countries participating each year. Many of the National or World DMC Champions have gone on to tour with successful recording artists, groups or represent prestigious brands and organizations worldwide. There’s a very good chance that you’ve heard a former DMC DJ’s performance on a favorite musician’s CD, the radio, or at an event you attended.
