Red Bull may or may not cause humans to sprout optera, but they definitely do put on some great music programming*, from Big Tunes to the RBMA to this, the Thre3style, a DJ battle that focuses less on sausage-festy technical battlemixing and more on competitive party-rocking, the true and original measure of a hiphop DJ. The performers tonight are Las Vegas' DJ Scene (Seattle native/former DJ for the Boom Bap Project ternt baller), DJ Cide, DJ Compose, Chris Cutz, D-JR, and J Espinoza. See what it looks like:
If this sounds/looks like your twist, I hope you got tickets to this, because word is that it's already sold out. The judges are reknowned titans of the Technics: the legendary Jazzy Jeff, mash-up pioneer (but still one of the best DJ's out, don't judge him) Z-Trip and globetrotting Canadian super-soldier and top-three hat-wearer A-Trak. A-Trak will be doing a special set of his own.
*Full disclosure: they have paid me in the past to host and interview folks for some of their programming.
