    SANTA MONICA, CA  – November 22, 2011 – Who’s the best party rocker DJ on the planet? The Red Bull Thre3Style World Finals aims to answer that question when eighteen national champion DJs converge and compete in Vancouver from December 13 – 17, 2011 for the coveted title. To earn a spot in the Red Bull Thre3Style World Finals, hundreds of DJs from around the globe battled it out in regional and national qualifiers. At each stage the rules remain the same: 15 minutes to rock the crowd with a set that incorporates at least three genres of music and keeps partygoers on their feet, and the judges impressed.

    Representing the U.S. is 30-year old DJ Big Once (see photo to the left), who was crowned the national champ on November 10, 2011 in Las Vegas, NV after an intense battle between eleven of the country’s DJs.  Big Once, from Chicago, impressed the judges and crowd with his seamless mix of electro, dubstep, and rock. “I designed the set to be really interactive,” he explained.  “I opened strong and finished strong and I had some weird things in the middle to keep it interesting.” Looking ahead to Vancouver, Big Once will be mixing up a special set that is sure to be memorable and stand out among the competition.

    THE HISTORY OF RED BULL THRE3STYLE
    The Red Bull Thre3Style World Finals in Vancouver is a homecoming of sorts. The original concept of Red Bull Thre3Style began five years ago as a Tuesday night experiment at a small club in Kelowna, BC. In 2010, the event first went global and changed the face of modern DJ battles. From the USA to Japan to New Zealand, 10 countries from around the world held deep-heated events to determine who the best party-rocking battle ambassador would be. Ultimately these warriors of the one’s and two’s came together in Paris, France at the end of the the year and flexed every musical muscle in their body at the Red Bull Thre3Style World Finals. In the end it was Paris’ own DJ kARVE who wowed the judges with his impressive collage of hip-hop head-nodding electro-rocking tunage. If last year’s event was anything to go by then the 2011 Red Bull Thre3Style World Finals is guaranteed to send the international DJing scene spinning like a record on a turntable.
