The beginning of many titles and achievements to come. Zeke entered his first turntablism battle for the world famous DMC championship title in 2007. Clearly being the winner of the state heat. Determined and with more drive Zeke successfully defended his state DMC title in 2008, and proved himself by earning the national title of “Australian Vice DMC Champion.” In 2009, Zeke was asked to compete in another highly respected competition, the International DJ Association (IDA) battle, formerly known as the International Turntablist Federation (ITF). With more ambition than ever Zeke was flown to New Zealand to compete against Australia's' and New Zealand’s best. Unanimously beating all competition and earning the title as, “Australasian IDA DJ Champion”. Having now been crowned the Australasian Champion, Zeke represented AUS/NZ in the World IDA Championship held in Krakow Poland. He placed 4th in the world! Zeke is now sponsored by Native Instruments Traktor Scratch Pro, Innofader, Skull Candy, Numark and Kosmic Sound. In 2010 Zeke was the first ever, “Qbert Skratch University Valedictorian”, awarded by Grandmaster turntablist “Dj Qbert”, recognising Zeke's extraordinary talent.
