After sifting through applications from some of the top DJs in the nation, an expert panel of judges, including DJ Jazzy Jeff, Four Color Zack, DJ Hedspin, Skratch Bastid, and Z-Trip, have selected 60+ participants to compete across 12 regional qualifiers leading up to the 2015 Red Bull Thre3style USA Championships.
This weekend, The Philadelphia regional qualifier lands at the popular Midtown hotspot, Voyeur for a can’t-miss competition with some of the area’s hottest talents. On Friday, January 30, five DJs — Impulse, Patrice McBride, FingerSmith, Reed Streets, Royale — will battle it out for the prize.
Each DJ gets a 15-minute shift where they can play whatever they like, as long as they have at least three styles or genres of music in that time. It doesn’t matter what genres of music are chosen so long as the DJ can make them work together.
When the smoke clears, the judges will select one DJ, based on technical ability and crowd reaction, to advance to the Red Bull Thre3style USA Championships in Phoenix, AZ. Out of the 12 regional winners ultimately one DJ will advance to represent the USA in the 2015 Red Bull Thre3style World DJ Championships in Tokyo, Japan.
Philly’s definitely got this one in the bag. Do you think one of this DJs is a sure win? Let us know who you are rooting for in the comments below.
