Tonight, Saturday, April 4th is the return of Triple Threat DJs monthly party at Mighty in San Francisco with Shortkut, Dj Apollo, Vin Roc, & Fran Boogie. It’s FREE before 11pm if you RSVP first: email@example.com. FREE OPEN BAR from 9-10pm. Bay Area Massive come thru & represent!
Speaking of Triple Threat DJs, 2/3 of the T3 crew, Shortkut & Vinroc comes back with their monthly joint, “So Much Soul”, this Friday, January 17th at the Mercer in San Francisco. This month’s guest is Seattle’s own Sean Cee. If you want to hear some R&B/Soul Grooves & get your dance on, this is the place to be.
After winning the San Francisco RedBull Thre3style Championship in 2014, the Triple Threat DJs (the legendary Dj Apollo, the talented Dj Vinroc, & our very own Shortkut) took a trip out to NY a few months back to visit Scratch Dj Academy in Manhattan.
“In addition to demonstrating their epic skills, the guys discussed how they got their start. These guys truly have done it all. From beginning with family weddings, birthday parties, and school dances to the epic presence they have today.”
If you missed The Triple Threat DJS (Shortkut, Apollo, & Vinroc) on Shade45 with the one & only Sway (The Wake Up Show/MTV) earlier this morning, you can peep them out in their rare NYC appearance at the Bob Bar tonight (12/17). The Triple Threat guys will show NY why they are the 2014 RedBull Culture Clash Bay Area Champions. The event is from 8p-4a. If you’re in the New York area, make sure to check out our Bay Area brothers……
Today, October 15th is the birthday of our fellow Beat Junkie brother, Jonathan Cruz….better known to the world as Dj Shortkut. Please wish him a Happy Birthday……
San Francisco…..tonight (Oct. 3) at Mighty SF, it’s “A Tribute To The Native Tongues” with A Tribe Called Quest‘s very own Dj Ali Shaheed Muhammed & our very own, Dj Shortkut. This is also the official afterparty for The Triple Threat Djs Celebration for winning the Redbull 2014 Culture Clash San Francisco. If you are in the Bay Area, you surely do not want to miss this!!!!!
This past Wendesday, October 1st was the Redbull Music Academy Culture Clash San Francisco and it was epic! 4 Soundsystems: Dirty Bird, Dub Mission, Tormentia Tropica, & the homies, Triple Threat Djs competed for the coveted clash. Triple Threat consist of our very own Shortkut, the legendary Dj Apollo, the incredible Dj Vinroc, & their mic handler Fran Boogie.
Peep the details & the profiles of the crews here: http://www.magneticmag.com/2014/10/red-bull-music-academy-culture-clash-san-francisco-crews-highlights/
The odds were up against the Triple Threat Djs especially when Dirty Bird brought out the big guns with Dj Craze, Diplo & Major Lazer, Too Short, Pharoahe Monch, & get this…..Daft Punk. Triple Threat had a couple of other surprises of their own: Lyrics Born, Zumbi from Zion I, & Souls Of Mischief….but the real shocker of the night (at least to us) was bringing out the legendary Crystal Waters to perform “Gypsy Woman” live!
Congratulations to our family, the Triple Threat Djs for winning the Redbull Music Academy 2014 Culture Clash San Francisco with such honor…..much deserved!
Whats up folks…..
Thought I would start something in the same vein as our “Throwback Thursdays” Video Series….this time, it’s “Mixtape Mondays”. During these segments, I’m going to post up some of old & new mixes from the crew, as well as the homies, & other mixes that I think that they’re dope. If you’re at work or just cleaning the house, just press play & hopefully you like our latest blog series.
Our first mix is from Shortkut, in honor of him & the Triple Threat DJs competing in the Redbull Music Academy Culture Clash this Wednesday (Oct. 1st) at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco. This recording is from his live set from The Boiler Room TV audio/visual show……Enjoy!
Our very own Dj Shortkut will be rocking side by side with his Triple Threat partners Dj Apollo & Vinroc at the Redbull 2014 Culture Clash in San Francisco. They will be taking on other notable Bay Area soundsystem collectives: the House Music massive Dirty Bird, the Nu-Cumbia collective Tormenta Tropical, & the local Reggae Selector legends Dub Mission. All happening at The Regency Ballroom. Here’s a description of what’s going down:
“Modeled after a Jamaican sound clash, Red Bull Music Academy Culture Clash will stay true to traditional standards and require each collective to bring in their own sound system and set up shop on one of four individual stages. It’s not a DJ battle or band competition, it’s about who has the heaviest sound, the best tunes, the most exclusive dubplates and greatest special guests. It is of course peaceful, but it’s also a clash; so calling out opponents, mockeries, diss records and counteractions are explicitly encouraged. It’s all musical, and it’s all love: once the clash is over, this will have been a great celebration of Bay Area music culture, with different eras and genres all united under one roof.
The night will be recorded by RBMA Radio for your future listening pleasure.
How it works
ROUND ONE – TEMPERATURE’S RISING
The collectives have free choice on what to play, taking the crowd’s temperature and setting the tone for their stage.
ROUND TWO – THE SELECTOR
Each collective is judged on tune selection and presentation.
ROUND THREE – SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY
Crews twist it, playing an opponents style of music. Big test. The mighty may fall.
ROUND FOUR – THE DECIDER
Clashing crews play their biggest and baddest tunes; dubplates, specials and exclusive live performances.”
Bay Area, go out and support your favorite sound system to make sure they win…..we’re biased; we’re rooting for our Triple Threat brothers. This is something you don’t want to miss!!!
Tonight, Friday 9/19….our very own Shortkut will be rocking with his fellow Triple Threat Djs partners, Dj Apollo & Vinroc at the official RBMA Culture Clash Pre Party at Mighty SF. Here’s what Short has to say:
