Phoenix’s top DJs went all out in front of 1100 people at last week’s Red Bull Thre3style. DJ M2 came out victorious, beating out the likes of Epidemic, Circle, Robby Rob, Astonish, M2, Pickster One, Death to the Throne and Chris Villa.
DJ M2 humbly remarked: “I didn’t even think I’d place this year. The competition was crazy -- everyone did something unique that made them stand out.”
M2 is now one step closer to making it to the National Finals in Las Vegas as he now has an opportunity to be one of three West Coast qualifying DJs vying for the two open regional spots. The winning DJ from Las Vegas will earn a position to compete at the International Finals in Vancouver, B.C.
The Phoenix Thre3style judges included Steve Levine (Phoenix based concert producer and promoter), Super Snake (radio personality known as “Voice of the Valley”), and DJ Tina T (world renowned DJ with residencies in Las Vegas and Los Angeles).
After the awards ceremony, Phoenix’s own Z-Trip took the stage to perform a special closing set for the packed house. About midway through, he surprised the crowd when friend and fellow Bombshelter DJ Radar joined him onstage.
Z-Trip entertained the crowd into the wee hours of the night, keeping them dancing until the house lights came up.
“Z-Trip is an inspiration,” said M2. “It’s amazing what he has accomplished.”
