DJ A-Trak at Webster Hall (more by Sara Skolnick)
A-Trak, who DJ'd Brooklyn Bowl last night, was only 15 years old (!) when he won the DMC World DJ Championship, an unheard of feat at the time. The Disco Mix Club is currently on the hunt for DMC's 2010 US Champion and will begin at a pair of DMC events at Santos Party House. May 15th is billed as the "DMC NYC + Battle for US SUPREMACY" and will find the local turntablist(s) to move on the US Finals, which will take place on August 7th. Tickets for the DMC NYC and the US Finals are both on sale. The US winner will move on the to DMC World Championships; details on that are forthcoming. The flyer and more info on the May event below...
