PHILADELPHIA, PA (January 29, 2013) – Worldwide DJ competition, Red Bull Thre3Style, is spinning its way back to Philadelphia for the US’ East Coast Regional Qualifier on Thursday, February 7.  Five of the best party rockin’ DJs from major northeast cities like New York, Boston and of course, Philly, will be mixing their hearts out to compete for a spot in the Red Bull Thre3Style National Finals, which hits LA this spring. There may not be any brotherly love behind the turntables this time around because the payout is higher with a place at the World Finals in Toronto (where Red Bull Thre3Style got its start) at stake.

Red Bull Thre3Style is a DJ competition that gives local popular DJs the opportunity to be globally relevant. Philadelphia was chosen as the East’s Regional hub because of its vibrant culture and arts scenes. Philly has housed many internationally respected DJs such as King Britt and Diplo as well as other artists entrenched in the music sphere like The Roots, Jill Scott and hip hop legend Schoolly D.

The Red Bull Thre3Style Regional Qualifier will be hosted by Philly-native and major player in the international DJ community, RICH MEDINA.

“Philadelphia has always been one of the more fertile training grounds in America”, said Rich Medina of his hometown. “…For DJ’s and DJ culture. From the bedroom to the club to the radio to international touring”.

The night will be judged by some of the world’s best DJs: A-TRAK, JAZZY JEFF and Z-TRIP.

Local DJ PHSH will be repping Philly and getting the crowd stoked on their hometown hero. “This is the starting point, it’s good to be able to just elevate from here,” PHSH said of his recent win. “I’m gonna bring the ruckus”.

Being no stranger to the national spotlight, Philadelphia produced the overall winner of Red Bull EmSee 2012, Mic Stew. Red Bull EmSee is a freestyle battle designed to find the best rappers in the country. Since taking the championship title this past year, Mic Stew’s career has been on the up and up and he has his Philly roots to thank.

“The music scene in Philly is the perfect incubator”, said Mic Stew of Ben Franklin’s old stomping ground. “You can find an audience and a venue to support any style you like to spin”.

Red Bull Thre3Style will give each DJ 15 minutes to perform at least three different genres of music in a competition to see who has the best mixing skills and can keep the crowd going all night long. The night will be held at Voyeur Nightclub, with doors open at 10PM and the competition starting at 11PM. The event is 21+.
