While the art of the DJ continues to evolve, it remains true to one objective: rock the party. It’s time to get the party started and ignite clubgoers across Canada 15 minutes at a time, as Red Bull Thre3style officially begins its search for the country’s Best Party Rocker DJ. Hitting over 20 cities across Canada, Red Bull Thre3style will feature the best local DJs throwing down their best party sets.
The challenge: each DJ needs to deliver 15 minutes of sonic infamy that incorporates a minimum of 3 genres of music. The constant: a pulsating, all-in all-out crowd. DJs from all across Canada will battle it out to make it through to the Red Bull Thre3style Canadian Finals, which is set for May 26, 2012 in Halifax, NS. Making its way to the East Coast for the very first time, the Red Bull Thre3style National Finals will takeover with talent from all over the country – from Dubstep, to Pop, from Hip Hop to Rock.
The search will kick off with 18 qualifying events and ultimately 5 Red Bull Thre3style regional finals, which will allow the winning DJs to compete in a major city to some of the biggest and liveliest audiences of their careers, on their way to the National Finals, where five of the best DJs in Canada will compete for the title of the Best Party Rocker. The winner will be moving onto the Red Bull Thre3style World Finals and representing Canada in Chicago, IL in September.
How these DJs will get to the Red Bull Thre3style World Final remains the same: Take talented DJs from across Canada, add 15 minutes of DJing, mix it in with three musical genres, bring flair, originality and swagger and you got a Red Bull Thre3style Champion!
Headlining the National Finals is none other than Hip Hop Legend DJ Jazzy Jeff. Known for his unique old-school sound and classic DJing style, DJ Jazzy Jeff has been putting out mixtapes and productions since 1896, not only making him a household name in Hip Hop but a DJ with a musical style unlike anybody else. Joining DJ Jazzy Jeff is a Red Bull Thre3style stalwart and Halifax’s own Skratch Bastid.
