SGM’s Fresh One and Chris Cutz have been invited to participate in the Red Bull Thre3style Competition taking place in San Diego this January. Come out to Voyeur in Downtown San Diego on January 17th to watch them battle it out against other local DJs. Come out and support SGM!! Check out the invitation they received!
Here are the details about the event:
Red Bull Thre3Style is a DJ contest that promises to be a night of dance-floor mayhem. The participants have to play a selection of at least 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 can’t get the feet on the dancefloor and hands in the air, they don’t stand a chance of winning a Red Bull Thre3Style contest. All participants are judged by a panel of professional party starting DJs with much experience in the industry.
In 2010 the event went global and changed the face of modern DJ battles. From the USA to Japan to Colombia to New Zealand, 10 countries from around the world held deep-heated events to determine who the best party-rocking battle ambassador would be. Ultimately these warriors of the one’s and two’s came together in Paris, France at the end of the year and flexed every musical muscle in their body at the Red Bull Thre3Style International Finals at the Élysée Montmartre. In the end is was Paris’s own DJ kArve who wowed the judges, consisting of heavyweights such as Jazzy Jeff and DJ Craze, with his impressive collage of hip-hop head-nodding electro-rocking tunage. If last year’s event was anything to go by then Red Bull Thre3Style 2011 is guaranteed to send the international DJing scene spinning like a record on a turntable.
How It Works:
(1) Participating DJs must play a set no longer or shorter than 15 minutes. Their set must incorporate three different styles of music. It doesn’t matter what styles, whether its hip-hop, electro, funk, house or country, so long as they turn the party out.
(2) Judges, experts in the field of DJing and rocking parties, evaluate each set according to a number of criteria including track selection, creativity, skills, stage presence and audience response. And while technical ability is very important, if a DJ cannot rock the house and get the dance-floor rolling, they don’t stand a chance of winning a Red Bull Thre3Style competition.
(3) 10 countries from around the world are competing in Red Bull Thre3Style 2010. The national winners for each country will come together at the end of the year for the international final in Paris where they will tear the dance-floor apart in an effort to win the title of the number 1 party-rocking DJ for the freshest DJ battle on the planet.
