Isle of Wight DJ wins national competition

A DJ from the Isle of Wight has won a national competition by showing off his skills on the decks.

Newport's DJ Leeboi Rutland took first prize at the King of the Decks event, which was recently held at the massive Oceana club in Leeds.

More than a thousand DJs entered the competition and Rutland said the night of the final showdown was the greatest of his life.

"I spent thousands of hours practicing at home and it paid off. I want to step up to the next level and winning this title is a massive move in that direction," he was quoted by the Isle of Wight County Press as saying.

Along with the King of the Decks title, Rutland won state-of-the art Pioneer DJ equipment worth £4,000, a trophy and £1,000 in cash.

Isle of Wight singer Faye Baker recently performed in the regional final of the UK Open Mic event, but failed to make it through to the next stage.
