2010 DMC US Finals DJ Battle in NYC dominated by Colorado DJs

Update: DJ Etronik from Pico Rivera, California, ended up taking home honors over the weekend as the winner of this year's DMC US Finals in NYC.

This Saturday, August 7, another chapter will be added to the annals of hip-hop history in New York City. On what will presumably be a predictably humid evening in the Big Apple, the 2010 DMC US Finals will take place, with twelve competitors from coast to coast pitted against each other on turntables in a quest for absolute supremacy. In order to receive a coveted invitation to the national competition, a DJ must prove his or her skills in a regional competition by placing in the top three.
