Sorry for skipping a day, friends but life caught up to me. BACK TO THE MUSICS! Here’s a double-dose of your Toronto qualifying DJs:
WHO IS WHATIF?
Ian Flemming aka. DJ WhatIF, is an up and coming DJ hailing from Toronto Ontario. With his Hip-Hop roots and distinct scratching skills, he has already managed to create a signature live experience that resonates with his audience. WhatIF has packed dance floors across Central Canada including Wrongbar, The Social, Andy Poolhall, The Dardanella and more. His live sets vary in style, from Hip-Hop and Dirty South to House and Dubstep, keeping crowds constantly on their feet. In his first year professionally Djing alone, he has managed to play with notable acts such as Designer Drugs, Grandtheft (Team Canada DJ’s), Hotmess DJ’s, DJ BLASTER (Montreal’s legendary hip hop DJ) Trypt, Mack Browne and DJ Medley (The Z-List). Only time will tell what happens to this rising artist.
Well, we can add making the Red Bull Thre3style qualifiers to his ever-growing list of accomplishments, can we not?!

WHO IS M-ROCK?
(Selected excerpts taken from DJMROCK.com)
“I used to make webpages to build careers, and now I think they make my career” says the well-rounded DJ and ex-web developer, who is always booked to DJ in an open-format.
Since 2010, he’s filled the dancefloor for clients such as Ryan Gosling, Shaquille O‘ Neal, Drake and fashion designer Marc Ecko, who have all complimented him personally at the DJ booth. The biggest reward was performing in front of his idols like DJ Premier at Scion’s King of Beats competition in New York.
It’s much more than just DJing and composing. Miami‘s Winter Music Conference asked him to host his own panel on his invention ‘Digital Juggling’ – a style of DJing that fuses turntablism and pianist-style keystrokes on the laptop.
COTDAMN! “Digital Juggling,” you say? *single blink* Aight, I’m impressed.
I spent most of last night listening to both of these DJs mixtapes and remixed tracks over and over again. I sound like a broken record (#sorrynotsorry for the idiom usage) but I’m SO ecstatic for this event. These DJs are not pulling any punches so I can only imagine what they’ll be like in battle mode.
