World’s Largest DJ Competition Crowns King

From 4 to 9 November Toronto welcomed 17 top DJs from around the globe for the Red Bull Thre3Style World Finals, the world’s largest DJ competition, to battle it out in front of thousands of fans and a judging panel of DJ heavyweights including DJ Jazzy Jeff, Kid Koala, Skratch Bastid, Grandtheft and Jess Jubilee. TORONTO (CAN) – After five nights of heated competition and wall-shaking performances in sold-out venues across the city, it was DJ Shintaro of Japan, a wildcard selection on the competition’s final day, who reigned supreme as this year’s Red Bull Thre3Style 2013 World Champion. “This win means so much,” said the 24-year-old. “I think it will help boost my DJ career and allow me to really show the world what Japanese DJ culture is all about”. As well as nightly DJ competitions and headliner performances in some of the city’s hottest venues, the Red Bull Thre3Style World Finals also featured panel discussions led by some of the most influential faces in the music industry. Having started as an underground music experiment in Western Canada six years ago, the event which sees ten countries’ top DJs battle each other went global in 2010 and, just three years later, has grown to become the largest DJ competition on Earth. This year it came down to the final battle on Saturday featuring Trentino (USA), Byte (Chile), Eskei83 (Germany) and Marquinhos Espinosa (Brazil), plus two wildcard competitors Bazooka (Switzerland) and Shintaro (Japan). As with every night, each competitor was given a precious 15 minutes to perform a set mixing at least three genres of music. Untouchable and forward thinking, with a truly unique sound, it was Shintaro of Japan who got the crowd rocking and the judges smiling to clinch the win.
