Our big brother, the legendary Dj Jazzy Jeff brings to you his video recap to the Redbull Thre3style World Championships in Baku, Azerbaijian a few weeks ago.
“What started as an underground experiment back in 2007 has quickly grown into the world’s largest DJ competition and, for the first time, the Red Bull Thre3Style World Finals hit Baku, Azerbaijan September 2014. Inbound from the four corners of the globe, from Albania to Argentina, from Germany to Japan. The top DJs on earth took over the city of Baku competing for the title of Red Bull Thre3Style World Champion. Filmed by Cristopher Schafer of Visually Inklined, DJ Jazzy Jeff gives you a comprehensive look at the 2014 Red Bull Thre3style championship.”
For another installment of Throwback Thursdays, I wanted to post a video of mi hermano, the one & only Dj Craze. Straight up, Craze is hands down the best Dj in the World in the history of Battle Dj’s. He’s one of my favorites and is always exciting to watch. Even after his retirement from the Battling scene, he was able to transition into being one of the best Party Rockers out right now and running his own label, Slow Roast. When we Dj’ed together at The Do-Over Portland a few months ago with the other homie Fourcolor Zack, he was joking he should call himself the “Floyd Mayweather Of Djing”….we were all laughing, but deep down I think he was serious…haha! Craze is an excellent Dj as well as an excellent human being…..that’s my hermano right there!
This video footage is from the DMC 1998 World Championships, where he was defending his title the 2nd time. Peep out this footage & this will show you why he was the 5x DMC World Champion…enjoy!
Beat Junkies‘ own D-Styles & Shortkut are in Baku, Azerbaijan right now with Q-Bert to perform/judge at the Redbull Thre3style World Finals……The finals just kicked off yesterday. Check out the video recap…… From Redbull: “The 2014 Red Bull Thre3style World Finals officially got underway in Baku last night after nineteen global hopefuls landed in the Azerbaijan capital.
After a few hours acclimatising to the heat – hello 31°C! – the world finalists got to mingle with this year’s judging panel of DJ heavyweights: The Magnificent DJ Jazzy Jeff, Z-Trip, Krafty Kuts, Skratch Bastid, and Shortkut. Then, to help loosen them up before five nights of DJ battles in front of thousands of eager fans, it was party time at the Pacifico Hotel.
The first battle begins tonight at the Baku Jazz Center, where DJ Bristep (Chile), C-Sik (Canada), DJ FMC (Norway) and Carlo Atendido (Philippines) will be the first contenders to fight for a place in this Saturday’s Grand Final.”
