At Webster Hall in New York City this evening the heated national annual turntablist battle for the best DJ in the USA, the prestigious 2015 DMC US Finals, took place with Queens' own DJ Precision winning the title at the East 11th Street venue. The DJ has won three times (including this latest battle) in the six minute battle, plus he also won in this year's DMC US Supremacy, which adds up to an impressive four DMC US titles in all.
An icon within the turntable community and a regular DMC battle participant and winner, Precision (born Perrin Wright ) won the national title last three years ago at the 2012 US DMC US Finals DJ battle. At that DMC US Finals battle, also held at NYC's Le Poisson Rouge on the west side of Greenwich Village, the runner up was Virginia's DJ I-Dee, but then last year won the US Finals (the previous year's 2013 US DMC Finals winner was DJ Esquire). At that 2012 US DMC Finals, the third place slot was earned by LA representative Manwell who made it back into the finals again this year where he took second place. Meanwhile, in third place this year was DJ Dwells - the supertalented young winner of the NYC Regional battle for two years in a row. In last year's US Finals, Dwells, who is now only 15, took second place. This year, despite been tipped by many as a potential winner of tonight's battle, he was overtaken in the heated turntable showdown in which other talented participants included DJ Ambideckstriks, DJ Ease, and DJ Throwdown.
