The DMC Championships, which has has helped launch the careers some of the most famous DJs in world over the past 20 years, is offering DJs around the world a chance to attend the DMC World Finals in London through an online voting process. San Jose’s own DJ Ichy the Killer is currently in the top five of the second round and has one more round to go before making the finals.

Anyone with a two-minute video showcasing their skills can enter, and then it’s up to the public to to vote on who should move up in each round. Here’s Ichy’s submission:

Ichy the Killer, also known as Chris Larsen, got his start almost a decade ago with the hip hop crew Counter Productive. He continues to spin for Dirtbag Dan, also from Counter Productive, and Insolence, Language Arts Crew and various other San Jose groups. But as his online video submission demonstrates, Ichy can hold his own without anybody rapping over his beats. He’s got a strong sense of structure and a slick artistic style.

Voting for round 2 is open until May 14th. Vote for DJ Ichy the Killer HERE.
