History Of DJ - The DMC Story (Part 1)

DMC takes you back three decades to an idea which revolutionised the DJ world.


History Of DJ

The History of DJ is an amazing story. It's hard to believe now that a top rock musician once said to Tony Prince, "DJ's are parasites of our music". Tony replied, "You'd be lost without us"!
Later in this exhaustive series the journey of the Club DJ, the Radio DJ and the DJ Producer will be revealed. From America's rock 'n' roll DJs and the payola that killed their leader, to the UK's barren radio land where the nation waited nightly at the Radio Luxembourg watering hole to quench their thirst for Beatles, Stones and Tamla Motown soul. The DJ's fight against the Musicians Union which led to a flotilla of pirate radio ships surrounding the British Isles. Then to the development of Ibiza and the global music festivals where DJs command fees beyond anyone's wildest dreams. Today, as the internet changes music consumption with downloads, clouds, blogs and iTunes and DJs host their own radio channels which can never be considered 'local radio' ever again, to the final question in the series: 'Where now"?
Welcome, to DMC's HISTORY OF DJ.

In Part 2 of The History of DJ, we trace the development and influence of DMC returning to the Royal Albert Hall and Wembley Arena for the World DJ Championships and DMC Awards.
