Where else but in Hamilton will you find a musical collaboration brought about by a Twitter interaction featuring selected members of our world-renowned Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra performing live in concert with Hachey the MouhtPEACE, Hamilton’s foremost human beatboxer?! This will prove to be the most interesting musical pairing happening this Supercrawl weekend!

In case you don’t know what a human beatboxer is, check out Hachey the MouthPEACE at work building rhythms and beats with only vocally generated sounds HERE; and also a more musical composition by Hachey HERE.

LIVE in-store Turntablism Showcase - Saturday, June 29 at 2pm

June 28th, 2013

Join us on Saturday, June 29 at 2:00pm for a very special session featuring two of North America’s foremost turntable technicians: Shiftee and DJ Vekked!

Both Shiftee and Vekked have competed at the highest levels of turntablism internationally via the DMCs. The DMCs are an annual competition that spans the globe. Regional finals, or “heats”, take place in various countries around the world as DJs battle head-to-head against each other, and then the regional winners attend the world finals that take place in the UK to decide the best DJ in the world. The DMCs are in essence the Olympics of DJing!

Shiftee (New York) was the 2009 DMC World Champ, and in 2012, Vekked (from Waterloo, Ontario) was crowned the DMC World Supermacy Champion!

Check out Shiftee doing his thing on the “1’s and 2’s” HERE!

And our boy Vekked ripping it up and keeping it real HERE!

See these elite masters of the “wheels of steel” spin their magic here live Saturday, June 29 at 2:00pm, right here at Dr. Disc! And then the same evening at 9:00pm, check them out at the DMC Hamilton Regionals taking place at This Ain’t Hollywood, 345 James St N.
