The global music community was heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic this year. With the nightlife scene essentially shut down, DJs turned to live...
The DMC has posted a video of DJ Yuto‘s winning routine from the 2016 DMC World DJ Championships, which took place in London on September 24.
Canada’s DJ Brace and the USA’s DJ Traps came in at second and third place, respectively.
Though praised for its technical ability, Yuto’s performance has also been criticized by some fans for its “button pushing.”
Christie Z. Pabon, CEO of DMC USA, defended Yuto’s set on Facebook.
“At no point at any time should the term ‘button pusher’ ever be used on an actual DMC champion on any level,” Pabon wrote. “They are called turntablists, my friend. No one wins a DMC with ‘button pushing.’ Some may not like the selection of a DJ but I would encourage anyone to duplicate this routine at home, just to see how much skill it took to win.”
