Kicking off 2010’s UK events, the UK DJ Final and Battle For UK Supremacy took place at the 02 Academy Islington on Thursday 15th July with the winners going head to head, battling for a place at the World DJ Championships on October 17th and 18th at KOKO.
Competing this year were the following impressive array of DJs: Mike L, Johnny 1 Move, Rasp, Loop Skywalker, Mr Eclipse, DJ Downlow, Killer Tomato and defending his title – Jeppa.
It was, as ever, a tough contest with all the country’s talent ferociously pitting their worth on the 02 Academy’s stage. When it was all said and done, last year’s winner – DJ Jeppa retained his title, and Mike L took the second place award, with one one point to separate the two in the judges eyes. Johnny One Move came a close third in what was a terrific battle.
In the Battle for UK Supremacy, Deceptakut took the title with last year’s champion DJ Rasp leaving with the Runners Up prize.
On the evening, two legends of homegrown hip-hop tore the the stage apart with their fiery but equally unique live shows. Ty performed songs from his new LP ‘Special Kind Of Fool’ to a rapturous reception, and Klashnekoff reached the stage for the final performance of the night showing exactly what people have been missing before his new LP ‘Back To The Sagas’ drops.
