Tees DJ in final of contest.

A TEESSIDE DJ is one turntable spin away from being named the best in the country.

Middlesbrough's Marcus Wedgewood has secured a place at the English final of Movida Corona, the world's biggest DJ competition.

If the 30-year-old wins the national title at London's world famous Ministry of Sound tomorrow, he will go on to battle against DJs from over 70 countries in a world final in Austria in December.

Marcus, of Albert Terrace in Middlesbrough, performs as a weekly resident at Absolute and Onyx Rooms in the town.

He said: "For me, being in the Movida Corona England final is an unexpected dream come true. It's my once in a lifetime chance to really shine and just proves that practice pays off."

Competition organiser Andy Milford said: "The competition this year has been intense, but Marcus has been a crowd-pleaser from the beginning. It's going to be hard to decide the ultimate winner as all of the DJs this year are extremely talented."
