All those big DJ fans in America can finally exhale: it's official, Pauly D. did NOT win this year's America's Best DJ contest. We've all been waiting quite some time to hear this news, but we're glad to say that DJ Times magazine and Pioneer DJ announced that this year's winner is none other than legendary scratch DJ, QBert! He'll be honored on October 2nd in Las Vegas for the ABDJ Closing Party. The trophy you ask? A special Gold-Played Pioneer mixer he'll receive from 2009 America's Best DJ winner Z-Trip.
QBert is also set to play Rain
nightclub for Paul Oakenfold's infamous Saturday night weekly, Planet Perfecto party.
"Skratching lives! What a great opportunity to show that we DJs are musicians," said QBert after receiving the news. "Thank you to everyone at DJ Times, ThudRumble.com and everyone for supporting the skratch art!"
