Red Bull Thre3Style gives highly skilled DJs a global platform to showcase their skills, battle and gain notoriety by rockin’ the dance floor. Crowd reaction, technique and the art of party rocking are what makes this the new school DJ contest. DJ’s are judged on track selection, creativity, mixing skills, stage presence and crowd reaction. Each DJ gets one 15 minute performance where they have to play a minimum of 3 genres. Anything goes – from house anthems to old school hip hop to Top 40 remixes.
DJs from the U.S. Regionals will come to LA this Friday April 5th to battle for the coveted title of Red Bull Thre3style National Champion – a title that comes with bragging rights; cash prizes; a stamp of approval from some of the best DJs in the world including DJ Jazzy Jeff, Z-Trip and A-Trak; and a ticket to compete in the Red Bull Thre3style World Finals in December.
We had a chance to sit down with one of the finalists DJ Scene and talk to him about how he got his start DJing, prepping his set for the battle, traveling, late night food and much more. Read the interview after the jump. And stay tuned for our interview with another finalist DJ Konflikt tomorrow. (more…)
