“The Golden Years” // My DMC Tribute Video

Here it is: The Golden Years, my time-traveling journey through DMC history. This video is a tribute to all the incredible DJ Champions from DMC’s glorious past. I’ve spent countless hours over the years studying masters like Roc Raida, Q-bert, Craze, and A-Trak. My goal: to one day stand in their shoes.  Literally…

Shout out to the new 2010 DMC World Champion: DJ LigOne from France!



“If you ever wondered why a few human beings become DMC World Champions, it’s because the creative side of their brains work differently than everyone else’s. Shiftee’s brain remains in a class of it’s own as he invites his World Champion forefathers to join him on stage to share his 2009 set without one of them so much as leaving their home!

This is up there with David’s human spin as one of the most memorable events in DMC history.”
Tony Prince, DMC Founder

Craze, 1998/1999/2000 DMC World Champion

“Shiftee killed it, what an original idea. Brings back great memories. But also, the routine is ill! RIP Roc Raida.”
A-Trak, 1997 DMC World Champion

“I love originality, that’s why I love DJ Shiftee and this video.”
Q-Bert, 1992/1993/1994 DMC World Champion

“I haven’t been entertained like this in quite a while.  The styles, personalities, and energy are all there in great detail and accuracy!”
Cutmaster Swift, 1989 DMC World Champion

“A DMC World winning set as you have never seen one before! I laughed out loud, got goose bumps and smiled like a Cheshire cat throughout this INCREDIBLE video. “
Sally Mclintock, DMC World Events Manager

“WHOOOAAAA!!!! Shiftee just turned the game upside down again! This is truly a gift to the entire battle scene.”
DJ Solo, 2010 DMC USA Supremacy Champion

“John Carluccio is a genius and DJ Shiftee is one funny & brilliant DMC World Champion!”
Christie Z-Pabon, DMC USA/Tools of War

“Shiftee educates the YouTube generation on Turntablism while cementing his own legacy in superb fashion.”
DJ I-Dee, 2005 DMC USA Supremacy Champion

“It is a genius idea, but what’s dope about it is that Shiftee respects and loves his craft and this video proves it 100 percent!!!!!”
Boogie Blind, 2001 Vestax World Champion, X-Ecutioners
