We are so pleased to announce something that will go down in the history of music forever. DJ Perly, a New York City-based DJ, has just been crowned the first female to win the DMC US Finals, an annual DJ battle that is going on its 32nd year.
She now joins the list of other amazing artists that have won the award. Past winners include A-Trak, Mixmaster Mike, DJ Craze and more. This huge achievement couldn’t have been accomplished without beating fellow DMC Champs Dwells and Schmeeze. She described her great gratitude to HipHopDX when she said, “When I heard my name as the USA champ, I was surprised and just overwhelmed with joy. I was so overwhelmed I kinda lost feeling in my legs and dropped to the floor [laughs]. That moment truly felt magical and gratifying that hard work was paying off.”
Perly has truly earned this title after winning DMC Vice Champ last year. Besides incredible bragging rights, she won the new Rane 72 mixer, as well a a trip to compete at the DMC World DJ Championships in London, where she will continue to make history and be an inspiration to female artists.
