I caught up with DJ Braun Dapper, the defending champ of last years Red Bull Thre3Style contest to talk spinning, his influences, and get a lesson on the 1’s and 2’s. You can catch that video below. Oh and by the way, that ridiculous beat you hear in the background comes from Braun himself.
This Thursday, April 5th at 8:00 PM nine DJs from the global contest Red Bull Thre3Style which celebrates innovation behind the turntables, will turn up the bass and shake down the walls of Brighton Music Hall. These guys are no joke and will have the records spinning all night taking your ears on a trip with funked out bass lines and synthesizers of chain saw insanity. So what exactly do these turn table master minds get if they’re crowned the best? For starters the title of winning a regional Red Bull Thre3Style event, a chance at stardom…oh and a $1,000 prize. Not only will the winner walk away with a fat check and the chance to compete in the East Coast finals in DC, but if they bring down the house in DC, it’s on to the US national finals.
THE CONTEST: Three different music genres in fifteen minutes. Who will rock the floor the hardest?
The competition will feature local mix masters such as: Braun Dapper, Layzeeboy, Midas, Reel Drama, Frank White, Durkin, Joey-C and Knife.
