    Here is the winning routine for the DMC World Championships from DJ Fly.

    What are your thoughts?

    I shall chip in with my own, but just wanted to hear PVR’s opinion first.

    woah that was goood. guy’s got well good timing. It’s shame they now all use such personalised scratch plates, but it does allow for a more musical outcome in the end I guess.

    Had to turn it off after a while, somehow manages to make dubstep sound even worse than normal

    I didn’t realise they were using Traktor nowadays in DMC. I’ve got no problem with it but it does make it hard to tell how much of his routine is sequenced (sounds like most of it is tbh) and how much he is doing live. The beat-juggling is pretty sloppy too to say it won DMC.

    My thoughts exactly.

    The guy is clearly skilled and I have no hope of performing anything like that, but it’s been heavily edited so that he can drop bars back in after scratching sections. At one point he seems to be juggling so that he is simply playing the original tune but juggling like crazy, which seems to defeat the object.

    Also, it’s so busy musically that I just don’t get in to the groove and it’s hard to tell what he’s actually doing. Watch some old skool dmc routines and I think you’ll see what I mean. Maybe not as fast paced and blam blam blam but much more engaging, enjoyable and quite obviously displays skills.

    I’m not anti tech (serato etc) but check the old school for real feeling, obvious skill and enjoyable to the ears!!

    Off topic, but just because it’s a masterpiece:
