DubSpot Instructor & DMC Supremacy World Champion DJ Shiftee is one of the premiere battle DJs in the world. As the 2007 DMC Supremacy World Champion and 2008 IDA/ITF World Vice Champion, he actively performs turntablist showcases. experimental group projects, and party sets throughout the globe. Shiftee will be teaching several upcoming DubSpot DJ classes this summer including the DJ Extensive Package, Turntablism, and Weekend Workshops in Traktor. On Saturday, August 1 watch Shiftee compete for the national DMC title at Santos Party House. In anticipation of the epic battles ahead, and to give the public an idea how this turntable master performs and teaches, we are releasing a special series of turntablism videos created by the man himself. Featured are some of the techniques that got him where he is today, giving a small taste of what people can learn here at DubSpot.

Little be known to the public, Shiftee is a man of many faces, spicing up his life with Salsa dance before a tragic injury that forced a drastic re-alignment of his career. Loath to loose his entire Latin flavor, he has incorporated these stylings into his DJ instruction (kinda).

In just two short years, DubSpot has fully emerged as a force in the electronic music world. The Ableton Live 8 U.S. Sessions Tour will continue this Fall in Los Angeles in October, then move on to 5 other cities including Seattle, Chicago, Atlanta, Austin and Washington D.C.
