Slightly more than a week ago, we met and spoke to DJ Nu-Mark of Jurassic 5 fame when he was in town for the Red Bull Thre3style Showcase at Butter Factory Kuala Lumpur. He brought the house down after during his “toy set” at the club – but it was more than just another party, it was a demonstration on how to do it right.
See, Red Bull Thre3style is an annual global quest created by Red Bull Blue & Silver (Europe), to seek out the world’s best party rocker. The brief is simple; rock the crowd and keep them wind up for a good 15 minutes, and while you are at it, incorporate a minimum of three different musical genres into the mix. Simple? Yes. Easy to do?

The participating DJs are judged on their track-selection, technical skills, creativity and most importantly their ability to bring the house down. It does not matter if they know all the DJing tricks and techniques in the book, if they cannot get the feet on the dancefloor and hands in the air; they don’t stand a chance of winning a Red Bull Thre3Style contest. All participants are judged by a panel of professional party starting DJs with much experience in the industry.
This year, Malaysian DJs will battle it out for the coveted title of Red Bull Thre3style National Champion – a title that comes with bragging rights; cash prizes; a stamp of approval from some of the best DJs in the world including DJ Jazzy Jeff, Z-Trip and A-Trak; and a ticket to compete in the Red Bull Thre3style World Finals in December.
Who will win the first ever Red Bull Thre3style Finals this 8th March 2013 (Friday), and represent Malaysia in the Red Bull Thre3style World Finals in Canada? Join us and help us determine the winner.
