This weekend we shot the Thre3style finals at Club Beta in Denver, Colorado. Each of the 10 DJs had a 15 minute to put together a set including 3 genres of music. We heard everything from Easy E, Tribe Called Quest, Beastie Boys, and Jay-Z to Pantera, Nirvana, and Bon Jovi, to the original Peanuts theme song. DJ’s are judged on track selection, technical skills, and crowd reaction.
DJ M-Squared, one of the nicest, most humble people you could meet, took home the win with an amazing set and will be heading to Paris for the international finals. Runners up were DJ Magnanimous who put on one of the most crowd pleasing shows of the night and played his entire set in a gas mask, and DJR.
After awards were given out, DJ Jazzy Jeff and ?uestlove of the Roots took the stage for the final performance and put on exactly the show you’d expect from these two legends of hip hop.
