Listen to Donnie Dee's winning set from Red Bull Thre3style Austin and read about some of the inspirations behind his crowd moving mixing.
Name: Donnie Dee
First album/song you ever bought?
Masta Ace's 'Slaughtahouse' 12-inch and Volume 10's 'Pistol Grip Pump' 12-inch
Vinyl vs. Digital?
Vinyl of course, but THANK GOD for digital.
Best song to get the crowd moving?
T.I.'s 'What You Know' (depending on how you play it and what you play before or after it).
What's the 'Don't Stop Believing' of 2013?
Maybe 'Scream and Shout' by Will.i.am & Brittney Spears.
How important is it to know the regions musical tastes?
Very important. Certain records that work in Texas are not going to work in New York (once again, depending on how you play the music).
How many records/mp3s do you own?
I haven't counted my wax, but its a garage full, my DJ room at my Grandma's house... so yeah, a lot! I have five hard drives of music.
Just a place with good quality sound. It honestly doesn't matter.
How do you start your set?
You have to grab peoples attention first or sometime catch them off guard.
Would love to rock with any of my favorite DJ's. J Rocc would be a dream collaboration.
Most annoying song request?
Too many. 'Wobble' or Bandz's 'Make Her Dance.'
What was the riskiest mash up you’ve ever done?
I think i did something with Ace of Base one time. It worked but it was on the fly and I don't remember doing it again.
What's your guilty favorite song?
Nicki Minaj, 'Turn Me On'
Do you know how to play any instruments?
Yes! Drums and tuba.
