San Clemente, CA – May 28, 2002 — C1RCA footwear is proud to be an official sponsor of the DMC American Battleground 2002 Tour.

Beginning June 5 in New York City, the 16th annual DMC Competition will hit 13 of America’s major cities, showcasing the country’s most talented DJ’s. According to The Source, “The DMC Competition has in recent years become one of the most prestigious showcases for emerging hip-hop DJ’s.” The DMC Technics World DJ Championship is world renowned for giving birth to the art of Turntablism, an innovative musical form whereby the turntable becomes the instrument and the DJ the composer.

Peripherally involved in years gone by, C1RCA is taking the next step in 2002. In addition to supporting the entire US tour, C1RCA continues to develop relationships with many of the top tablists in the world, including A-Trak, Infamous and Klever, all showcased during this tour.
