06/05/02 DMC Regional:Mr. Sinista/A-Trak/The Beatnuts @ BB King's Blues Club, New York, NY
DMC stands for Disco Mix Champions and it is the premier competition event of turntablism, the art of manipulating sounds with two turntables, as opposed to DJs who merely spin records.
A-Trak won in 1997 at the age of 15; he is now Kanye West's DJ.
The winner in 2002 was Japanese DJ Kentaro.
We were treated to some ridiculous beats and scratchery, as well as some cool swag.
It didn't seem as if The Beatnuts were actually going to show, but they did indeed come on stage a bit after midnight if memory serves correctly.
