Please press play: 

My WordPress account is back up and running. The constant technical glitches threw a wrench in my countdown plans so this isn’t a “countdown” post but a super-quick introduction to the remaining 3 DJs scheduled to take the state at the Red Bull Thre3Style Regional Qualifier: Toronto THIS Thursday (Sept. 26th).  I won’t leave any man behind. HERE WE GO!

INTRODUCING @DJJOOCE

JOOCE

INTRODUCING @DJMAKEM

MAKEM

An industry veteran, DJ MAKEM has rocked crowds from coast to coast. For years MAKEM has displayed his innovative, original, party-rocking skills shutting down parties and leaving crowds wanting more. His style of versatility and originality keeps him in popular demand- it’s no wonder world renowned artists such as A-Trak, Skratch Bastid, and Neil Armstrong have shared the stage with him!!  Check out his HOMECOMING MIX below:

INTRODUCING @MENSATHEDJ

Mensa

From the smallest of lounges to thousands in attendance, Mensa has brought parties to life across Canada, the US, and his native Philippines. Smooth mixing paired with a turntablist’s sensibility make his sound hard to duplicate, and has quickly made him one of Toronto’s favorite DJ’s. At every party, Mensa makes it a personal affair, creating on-the-spot mixes tailored to the vibe of every occasion.

Check out my current favourite mix he’s put out called “Light Work.” I’m pretty sure my future offspring will be conceived to this mix. “LIGHT WORK”: http://www.djmensa.com/mixes/djmensa_lightwork.mp3

Neither Makem or Mensa are strangers to the Thre3style competition, both are previous title holders of the Toronto qualifiers so this will be an exciting night all around.  Will it go to a previous winner or will a brand-new Tdot king be crowned?

Only one way to find out!  I have your “free before 10pm” passes for this Thursday so do not hesitate to shoot me a message to singleblinkblog@gmail.com to grab one. Or you can buy your tickets here: www.ticketweb.ca/rb3style.

DAY 26 – D.J.’S GET NO CREDIT

…and Red Bull Thre3style gon’ change all of that. #fact

As into music as I am, I was not as well-versed on the DJ scene as I’d like to be. This changed IMMEDIATELY upon hearing that Red Bull Thre3style is bringing the world finals to Toronto. Ya, y’heard me! Every single qualifying DJ from around the world is going to descend upon MY hometown in November to spin, scratch and leave their sweat onstage with the most diverse sets you’ll ever hear in one spot.

Whatchu know about Four Color Zack (@Fourcolorzack)?

Four Color Zack is the current Red Bull Thre3style title holder and for every good cotdamn reason. Also, a super nice dude! I implore y’all get your lives with FCZ’s winning set below.

*single blink* 

O………….K! Stevie? The Rocky Theme? Rihanna? The Ramones? 50 Cent? Bruce Springsteen? A-ha?! What the actual f*ck just happened in 15 minutes?! (Watch his set here!)

I could copy and paste every write-up I’ve read on FCZ and why I think he’s sickening as f*ck but I’m pretty sure your non-stop moving bampsy while listening to this is all you’ll ever need to know (please note: I’m listening to him as I write this post).

WHAT IS RED BULL THRE3STYLE?

How dope is this?!! AAAAAH! I can’t tell you how excited I am for this competition. It’s like the gods read my diary and created an entire competition based on the things I find sexiest: music & men (not that this competition is closed to women, SHOUTOUT TO DJ RAYRAY <3, but let’s be serious about MY needs). Every single day until the Toronto qualifiers (Sept. 26th), I’ll be counting down all my favourite things about Thre3style focusing on past winners, the 8 qualifying Toronto DJs (D-SMOOTHINTRINITYJOOCEKID MKM-ROCKMAKEMMENSAWHATIF) and mixes from the known-to-the-unknown DJs who’ve all been part of taking this competition to a global soundstage.

SB DISCLAIMER: Everyone has a Red Bull opinion, I hear it on the daily.  Please trust me when I say, I’m not here for it. If you’re thinking of providing your negative two cents, I’d think twice about leaving it here. I’m surrounding myself with good & positive vibes and no one can deny the Shaquille O’Neal-sized cultural footprints this company is leaving behind.  Red Bull Thre3style is simply another amazing example of this.

Let me know what you think of FCZ’s set!  Make sure you RSVP to the Ontario regional qualifiers this month (Facebook links below):
