BAKU (Azerbaijan) – Monday night all heads turned to the local hotspot Pasifico. The finalists gathered to draw their names from the hat and then strategically picked their spot on the week’s schedule in front of a packed house of media and local music lovers. Following this, World Finals judge Skratch Bastid and World Finals host DJ Flipout jumped on the decks playing exclusively 45’s. Their 45 set was followed by an all vinyl mix from 2010 world champ DJ Karve from Paris, France. Then it was 2011 and 2012 world champs -Hedspin and Four Color Zack’s- turn to rock the house. Finally, the one and only DJ Jazzy Jeff took control of the turntables to close the night on what can only be described as a once in a lifetime DJ experience.
This past year, the best DJs on the planet competed in their own regions in what is known to the world’s largest and most exciting DJ competition there is. They’ve practiced for endless hours to put together the most technical and fun 15 minutes to impress the judges, earning their tickets to this week’s world finals in Baku.
Everything is now officially set and it promises to be a legendary week. The competition starts today, Tuesday September 2nd at the Baku Jazz Center, where DJ Bristep (Chile), C-Sik (Canada), DJ FMC (Norway) and Carlo Atendido (Philippines) will be the first contenders to perform in this week’s Championships.

About Red Bull Thre3style
Red Bull Thre3Style pits the world's best DJs in a competition that values technical skill as much as the ability to thrill a dancefloor. Competitors are judged on the dual platforms of technical ability and crowd reaction, and are given just 15 minutes each to prove that they're the best in the room. Judges work to a strict criteria that also marks DJs on their originality in song choices, confidence performing and mixing prowess.
It began as an underground experiment seven years ago in Canada. In 2010, the event went global for the first time, effectively changing the face of modern DJ battles by pitting ten countries' top DJs against each other. Since then, in four short years, Red Bull Thre3Style has grown to what is now the largest DJ competition on Earth.
