Check Out The Red Bull Thre3Style

Check 1, 2, Red Bull Thre3Style DJ battle hits SA

Red Bull Thre3Style is a DJ battle that is set to take the art of spinning on the ones and twos to the next level. Participating DJs have to not only show off their technical skills to pay the bills, they have to also prove they can turn the party out and keep feet on the floor and hands in the air till the early morn by playing a genre busting set combining three different styles of music.

What began in Canada five years ago, is now in its third year as a full international competition. More importantly this year sees South Africa enter the frey for the first time ever, and with a rich historty of DJ culture spanning genres such as Hip-Hop, House and Electronica, whoever is crowned Red Bull Thre3Style South African Champion is certainly set to be a fomidable force at the World Finals.

The rules of Red Bull Thre3Style ensure that the competition is a perfect marriage of technical DJing and party rocking prowess. Participants have to play a selection of three genres or styles of music in 15 minutes. It doesn’t matter what genres of music are chosen so long as the DJ can make them work together. The participating DJs are judged on their track-selection, technical skills, creativity and most importantly their ability to bring the house down. It doesn’t matter if they know all the DJing tricks and techniques in the book, if they cant get the dancefloor moving, they don’t stand a chance of winning a battle.

The Red Bull Thre3Style South African leg is going down on Saturday the 23rd of June at the Alexander Theatre in Braamfontein, Johannesburg. 8 DJs from all corner of SA’s diverse scene will get a shot at being crowned the Red Bull Thre3Style South African champion and go on to compete at the World Finals in Chicago, USA at the end of the year.

Every battle will be judged by a panel of professional party starting DJs and music media with much experience in the industry. And once everyone has played and the winner announced, the judges themselves will get behind the decks to show the crowd just how it’s done. So if you want to experience a night where every DJ is out to entertain to the max, you can’t miss Red Bull Thre3Style.

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…
