This past Sunday, the RedBull Thre3 style qualifier was held at Mirage night club. The event is a competition to see who’s the best party rocker in the suburbs. DJ is given 15 minutes and to play atleast 3 genre, and are judge on, mixing, song selection, crowd reaction, and technical skill. The judges this night were DJ Hedspin, DJ P-luv, 2 red bull representatives. There were 10 Dj’s all over B.C. from Squamish, Whistler, Vancouver, and even Delta, fighting for the number one spot for the Regionals. This being my first serious competition, I was hella nervous, but besides that I was able to meet fellow DJs, Network and drink some Red Bull.
The night started off a little bit slow, the competition was initial was to start at 9, but the club was dead empty so it was pushed back to 10 o clock. Names were drawn out of a hat, and I was second to go. By the 1opm there was some what of a very small crowd. DJ Praiz went first and I was on after.
After following DJ’s Praiz set and being on Deck with the judges looking and my friends in the crowd. I was nervous. What also shook my nerves even more, is when I started the set there was no volume present for the first 10 seconds. I had to restart my set which threw me totally off. Needles to say I didn’t pull of my routine as I planned, but in those 15 minutes I learned so much about DJ’n and set times.
After my set, 8 other djs went on. I was surprised to see DJ’s using CDJs; From all the Redbull Thre3 Styles that I’ve every been too, all the DJ’s have used CDJ’s. There a few DJs who were able to pretty impressive on the CDJ’s.
At the end of the night, DJ Praiz came first, DJ C-styles came 2nd, and DJ Rich-A came 3rd.
DJ Hedspin, Redbull World Champ performed an amazing set after the winners were declared.
The Regionals will be May 3rd at Fortune Sound Club.
I’ll keep you posted on this.
