The first ever DMC Australian event was in 1988.

” Although the World DJ Mixing Championships (as they were known back then) kicked off in 1985 at the DMC DJ convention, the first Australian event wasn’t held until 1988 DMC Australia was then ran by Sydney-based promoter and DJ Joe Coneeley (a.k.a Joe 90) who ran various dance parties and went on to found the `Vibes on a summers day’tour. His Sydney DJ comp events were huge and one in particular drew 5000 punters to the Horden pavilion. The event was hosted by a young Rodney Overblow the Third, now more reasonably known as MC Rodney O. That year it was Sydney-sider Drew Muirhead who triumphed at the nationals. ” – Stewart Hanna

Joe 90 split with DMC in 1990 and it wasn’t until 1992 that the DJ comp recommenced.

One source say’s that Chris Smith aka Dj Chris Kross took over, whilst another source say’s Stewart Hanna took over in 1992. – http://thedwarf.com.au/interview/dmc-world-dj-championships-dj-perplex-and-stewart-hanna

That year the VIC heat took place at the Mega Bar and included some stellar names. Ransom took out first place, with DJ Kash second and Anthony Pappa in third. Ransom’s routine included the first `Beat Juggle’ in an Australian battle, but the judges at the Australian finals (including Future Entertainment head Honcho Mark James and old skool DJ Paul `Flex’ Taylor) gave the nod to NSW champ K.C (Kirren Way) who’s spectacular set included samplers, 4 decks and pyrotechnics. The live act in 1992 was Def Wish Cast.

“1993 was an interesting year for the DMC because it was the only year they allowed a DJ to enter with a musical instrument and a vocalist, or a couple of DJs together.” Eddie Robless

1995

“Chris Smith parted with DMC in 95 I took over the national agency and ran my first national comp in 96. We held the finals at the Entech trade fair in Darling Harbour, which was a stress and a laugh at the same time. That year K.C, Skizo and Brian A.S.K entered as a 3-man team and won. ” – Stewart Hanna

Later that year he competed at the DMC World finals in London and gained an amazing Top 14 World ranking, making him the youngest DJ to ever represent Australia at just 20 years old.
