Beat junkies and turntablists beware! The 2006 DMC World DJ Championships are upon us, with this year’s event looking set to be the biggest yet!

The event will be taking place at the Hammersmith Palais in London on the 10th and 11th September. This year is the 21st Anniversary of the championships and there is a whopping $30,000 (just over £15,000) in prize money up for grabs along with those world-renowned golden turntables.

This year the rules have been brought back to basics with only one set of Technics SL1210 MK2 turntables, one mixer with no effects or modifications and only stylus in the Ortofon range allowed per competitor - a factor which will give each participant an equal platform and really crank up the pressure for each round.

The competition is broken down into three key events: The Battle For World Supremacy, a solo head-to head knock out with rounds leading to the last two DJs standing. The Team Event, which features teams of two, three or four DJ’s using up to 8 turntables to battle each other. And finally - the Individual Event, the main solo event to find and crown the new DMC World DJ Champion.

It all kicks off on September 10, with hosts Killa Kela and MC Trip hosting the event at the Hammersmith Palais. Tickets are £15 per day or £25 for the weekend, and are available from www.dmcworld.com.
