LOS ANGELES, CA -

This is a news release from Peavey Electronics

With DJ battle season underway, the prestigious DMC USA Battle for Supremacy, sponsored by Peavey Electronics, returns. The 2016 DMC Los Angeles Battle + DMC USA Battle for Supremacy will take place this Sunday, May 22, from 5 p.m. to 12 a.m. at Fuego Lounge Rooftop on S. Figueroa St.

Representing the Peavey brand, Keith Shocklee of Public Enemy and The Bomb Squad will be in attendance to throw down a party-rocking set. Shocklee added: "Peavey was there at the beginning of hip hop. I’ve been using Peavey gear since 1975. In early mobile DJ culture, they were the working man's loudspeaker system. The thing about Peavey equipment was that it was accessible and reliable for cats like us growing up in the suburbs and inner city." 

For both the Los Angeles regional and USA Supremacy battles, Peavey will award the first place winner with a pair of PVXp™ 15 speakers and the second place winner with a pair of PVXp™ 12 speakers.  These compact and portable loudspeakers deliver high fidelity and impressive power using Peavey's legendary speaker and power amp technology. Both models feature heavy-duty woofers, 2-3/8" voice coils and the Peavey RX14™ 1.4" titanium diaphragm compression driver coupled to a constant directivity horn. These brand-new speakers are just two of the great prizes competitors will have the opportunity to win. 

Both DMC battles will be hosted by TOQUON THA MC and judged by DJ Icy Ice, Dini and more to be announced. The DMC Los Angeles Regional DJ Battle is a classic solo showcase-style DJ battle. The champion will win a round-trip flight and one-night hotel stay to compete in the 2016 DMC US Finals (date and location to be announced). The DMC USA Battle for Supremacy is a head-to-head, vinyl/DVS-only battle. The champion of this competition will win a round-trip flight and hotel stay to compete in the 2016 DMC World Finals in London, England. 

To register, DJs must email their responses to a brief questionnaire no later than 11:59 p.m. on May 20. Certain restrictions apply. For more information, visit www.dmcdjchamps.com or DMC’s Facebook page.
