International Dj Association (IDA) derives directly from the International Turntablist Federation (ITF) with its former headquarters in San Francisco which was for many the international organization gathering Dj`s from all around the world.
Main goal was to promote turntablism, which is the usage of a gramophone as a music instrument. ITF had its agencies in more than 15 countries.
However, in the year 2006 the Federation suspended its activity for the establishment of IDA – International Dj Association with its Headquarters in Munich. The establishment of IDA was the cause of the necessary changes that were made to make the ITF competition more attractive and modern.
In the year 2006 Federation’s and Agencies operating all over the world decided to make a reform which lead to the foundation of a new organization named International DJ Association which started its activity on the 1.1.2007. In 2011 Mr.Dastranj received the license for IDA Canada.
