About DMC Canada
DMC Canada, the Canadian branch of the DMC World organization was re-established in 2011 under new leadership and direction. Each year, DMC Canada organizes and facilitates the “Canadian DMC Battleground” which is comprised of various Regional and National Canadian DMC DJ Competition dates. The Canadian DMC DJ Competition operates as part of the annual DMC World DJ Championships (est. 1985), providing a platform for the nations’ most talented turntablist DJs to perform in front of their peers and fans alike in hopes of representing Canada at the DMC World DJ Competition.
Canada has always been regarded as one of the most competitive Nations at the DMC World Competition, producing three DMC World Champions including the likes of A-Trak (1996), DJ Dopey (2003) and Vekked (2015). With the advent of the DMC World Online DJ Championships, Canada has also produced two DMC World Online Champions with Vekked (2015) and DJ Brace (2016), capturing back-to-back titles. DJ Vekked was also the first Canadian DJ to capture the coveted DMC World Supremacy Championship in 2012.
DMC Canada also organizes a number of educational, informative seminars and panels pertaining to the promotion and preservation of various elements of DJ culture. Many of these events draw upon the likes of special-guest DMC World Champion DJs to facilitate instructional seminars focusing on the topic of turntablism. In 2017 DMC Canada also assembled the “who’s who” of Canadian club, radio and tour DJs to share the experiences and to inspire up-and-coming DJs during the “In Rotation With DMC Canada” Seminar. All of these activities round out DMC Canada’s calendar by providing a complementary and supportive backdrop to the Canadian DMC Battleground.
