I'm signed up to help judge the Columbus edition of Red Bull's Thre3style DJ contest this Saturday at The Bluestone. Alongside fellow judges Big Once, StoneRokk and DJ Clockwork plus host/stage diving expert DJ E-V, I will help select Ohio's representative at the Thre3style National Finals in Orlando.
Here's how it works: Six regional DJs will have 15 minutes each to wow the panel based on "track-selection, technical skills, creativity and most importantly their ability to bring the house down." They have to work in at least three genres to show their versatile taste, technical flair and the ability to stitch together a wide range of sounds in a way that gets people's hearts pumping.
The following performers will be throwing down on the decks:
Donkis (Cleveland) - @DjDonkis
KNYCE (Cleveland) - @DjKnyce
DJ Ginsu (Columbus) - @DeeJayGinsu
Cornelius Jackson (Columbus) - @CJismyDJ
DJ D-Lo (Cincinnati) - @DjDLO
Prism (Louisville) - @DeeJayPrism
