Richie goes for the ‘Hat Trick’ in the DMC’s – Round 2!

For those who may not know, the DMC’s are considered by many DJ to be the biggest and best turntablist / DJ competition, in the world.

Every year they open their doors with an online competition, open to all DJ’s in which artists can enter, by uploading and submitting, their two minute routines, with an aim to firstly get approved, and then voted for with success, in order to get through to the next round, (a total of three) before the top 3 of each round then get to prepare a six minute routine, to impress the judges for the overall title.

Richie was delighted to be approved for the competition which he is currently sits 8th in round 2, and needs your vote to get through to the final round 3, before the judges take over voting for that final six minute routine – to crown the overall winner.
