Where: Fanny's
When: Saturday April 10, 2004

DJ DOPEY is one of a few DJS in the world to own a set of gold-plated Technics turntables.

And that's because he is one of the special few DJs recognised as the best of the best.

The 24-year-old Canadian won the rare turntables when he took out the coveted DMC WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS in 2003, joining the likes of past winners DJ CRAZE, ROC RAIDA, CUTMASTER SWIFT and CASH MONEY. DJ Dopey has been honing his craft for the past nine years and went from winning small-time titles to taking out major national and international competitions.

He said that his drive to succeed on a larger scale came from a `hunger' to achieve more.

``It most definitely took a lot of perseverance,'' he said.

``Basically after every battle I just got even hungrier and hungrier.'' DJ Dopey has shared the stage with GANG STARR, KID KOALA, Q-BERT, MIXMASTER MIKE, JAZZY JEFF, SCRATCH PERVERTS and THE X-ECUTIONERS.

He is preparing to release an album titled DJ Dopey Presents Scratch Works Vol.1 this year.

Catch DJ Dopey at FANNY'S on Saturday night.

The doors will open at 9pm and DJ Dopey will be on stage from 11pm.
