Rodney P and London Posse to headline DMC World DJ Championship finals

Reunited UK hiphop veterans head bill of annual DJ competition final

DMC have confirmed London Posse as headline act for this year’s World DJ Championships Final. The group, featuring Rodney P, Bionic, DJ Biznizz and Sipho, formed in 1986; their 1990 debut album Gangster Chronicle is widely considered a landmark in UK hiphop. The Posse reformed earlier this year for a series of shows to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their debut single London Posse/My Beatbox Reggae Style (Big Life).

The line-up for the final will also include a live tribute to recently passed DJ Daredevil (aka Ben Smith) by a turntablist supergroup comprised of Prime Cuts, DJ Woody and Matman.

The final will be held at Koko, London on 1 October
