The Red Bull Thre3Style swept through Orlando on February 1st, 2013. Bringing out the best of the best, 5 DJ’s from the Central Florida region – DJ Sureshot, DJ Ku, DJ J-Storm, DJ A Rock, and DJ Nova showcased their talents for a packed house at The Social in Downtown Orlando.
The Red Bull Thre3Style features over 130 DJ’s and 32 events around the U.S., these 5 DJ’s definitely held it down for Central Florida. Hosted by Madd Illz of GrindTimeNow and judged by previous Red Bull Thre3Style Champ and Orlando-native, DJ M-Squared, this was a night that Orlando music heads will definitely remember.
Before the crowd piled in, we had a chance to chat with each DJs for our new “Climax Quickie” segment and find out a little more about their style and why they became a DJ.
We asked each DJ the following questions:
What is their Climax Song… meaning what is their favorite song to play at the best part of the night?
Who or what was a major influence on why you became a DJ?
