Red Bull Thre3style’s Reigning Champs
In September, DJs from around the globe landed in Tokyo, Japan, to mix their discs at the sixth Red Bull Thre3style World DJ Championship. After coming in 2nd in Toronto in 2013, Chilean DJ Byte spun his way to 1st place in his third competition. Representing the USA, San Francisco-native DJ J. Espinosa took home 2nd. Breaking into 3rd place was DJ Wiz of Switzerland.
DJs participating in the competition were allowed to use two turntables or CDJs and a mixer, two dicers, and a midi controller of their choice, with no hot sync allowed. All three champions chose Rane’s battle-tested mixers to win, and a majority of those competing followed their lead.
