DJ Jazzy Jeff was just here to DJ a CIAA party at Halo, but he's coming back. This time, he'll be judging a local DJ battle sponsored by Red Bull at The Forum. Details below in the press release. What a great way to rock in the beginning of the workweek.
LOCAL DJS BATTLE IT OUT FOR RED BULL THRE3STYLE
Charlottes The Forum to Play Host as Eight Local DJs Fight for a Chance at Miamis Winter Music Conference
WHAT: Red Bull Thre3Style isnt your typical DJ battle. Eight of Charlottes best and most requested DJs will have to prove they have the spinning skills and musical knowledge to be crowned the citys best. Each hand selected contestant will have 15 minutes to mix three different genres of music and win over the judges and the crowd. Judged on song selections, creativity, skill, swagger, and audience reaction, each DJ will have to give their all to win this competition.
WHO: Headlining the Red Bull Thre3Style Charlotte stop is DJ Jazzy Jeff who is no stranger to a set of turntables. He was just 10 years old when he started spinning records at parties and using his familys basement as a training ground for his expert mixing. In the 90s Jeff and his partner, Will Smith, created the chart topping duo, Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince. Jeff has since served as producer for successful recording artists such as Jill Scott and continues to support and create music through all of his projects.
Jazzy Jeff will give a live DJ performance as well as join a panel of four other local judges who will score the contestants and ultimately choose whos best. The winner of the Red Bull Thre3Style Nashville qualifier will advance to the regional finals to be held in Miami during Winter Music Conference. The winner of that final will advance to the U.S. finals in Denver later this year and the U.S. finals winner will earn the chance to compete in the International finals to be held in Paris, France.
