DJ Vekked on the Mikidz Show (13 June 2016)

A great chance to see reigning world DMC champ Vekked away from his natural habitat of destroying the competition on stage at DJ battles. Mikidz show has been graced by the likes of J-Rocc, QBert , D-Styles & Melo-D in the past and this set is right up there, and is definitely my personal favourite....

Red Bull 3style Lucky Bastid 2016 submissions - Ones to watch

I'm a fan of pretty much all DJ'ing, regardless of what type of music is going on and when I can understand what the DJ is doing! (happens less and less with all the tech these days admittedly).

Whilst it's probably still a close third to the DMC's and IDA comps I do still check the entries for the Red Bull 3style comp every year too and had a look at some of the Lucky Bastid (wild card) submissions, here's some that are well worth a watch....

DMC Online 2016 Final Round - Review

I'm always really keen to check the DMC online finalist's videos and even more so this year that I got some time to put a routine together myself.

I thought Skillz and Throdown would storm my round (round 6) and it seems they did, although I liked Throdown's 2 minutes slightly ahead of Skillz, but the judges thought otherwise.

The following top 5 are my choices (in no way linked to the judges' scores) along with some of my observations, sick routines throughout!!
